Transition to ICD-10: Identify and Avoid Common Audit Mistakes

It is crucial to know how to properly document for ICD-10 ,and to ensure the providers are documenting to the highest level of specificity, so that the most specific diagnosis code can be selected.

This session by Dreama Sloan-Kelly, MD, CCS, will give tips on to document to the highest level of specificity for ICD-10 codes and how to use commonly billed ICD-10 codes to guide the provider on what needs to be documented. Dreama will also guide you to create provider cheat sheets as well as how to audit for pre and post readiness, along with tips on designing templates, as well as common audit pitfalls.

Session highlights:

  • How to appropriately document in the history, physical exam, and assessment/plan to comply with all CMS documentation guidelines.
  • How to design a template that works for the group and also ensures to meet all compliance standards.
  • Pitfalls many face in audits – information not specific enough in regards to laterality, acute vs chronic, type of encournter etc.
