Product Description

Understand the Specificity Requirements for PTs in their Documentation for ICD-10

 

As the medical industry goes all out to keep pace with ICD-10 changes, physical therapy (PT) practices are also bound to be impacted in this massive overhaul. Physical therapy service providers, like physicians and other providers, must understand the specificity required of their documentation in the expanded ICD-10 version that started on October 1, 2015. The knowledge of PT providers with regards to anatomy and physiology in some ways makes their task easier while they are documenting for ICD-10. However, the challenge lies in learning how to look up options of specificity for a patient.

Join this session by expert speaker Jill Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC as she helps Physical Therapists understand the specificity of their documentation in the expanded ICD-10 version for physical therapy. This training session will make ICD-10 documentation for PTs a whole lot easier.
