Product Description

Expert Strategies to Overcome Documentation Challenges in Obstetric Cases Under ICD-10-CM rules.

Obstetric coding is difficult under ICD-9-CM rules, and it will become more specific under ICD-10-CM rules. Knowing the guidelines will help, but hands-on practice will be the key to feeling comfortable with the new system and assigning codes that will not be denied due to lack of specificity.

Join expert speaker Melanie Witt - RN, CPC, COBGC, MA in this 90-minute webinar, where she will help you understand how to convert physician documentation into specific diagnostic codes. In getting to practice with current cases, you will become comfortable with your diagnostic coding choices, and be ready to convert on October 1, 2015.

Plus, she will include a hand-out reference which converts the ICD-9-CM OB codes into their ICD-10-CM equivalents.
