ICD-10-CM Documentation and Compliance

June 20, 2013

Coders and medical staff need to obtain valuable education to prepare for the ICD-10 transition. Prepare with hands-on training from Contexo Media.

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

On October 1, 2014, medical practices will be required to switch from the familiar ICD-9-CM code set to the more detailed ICD-10-CM code set. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), by the end of 2013, you should have completed the planning stages for ICD-10 and should be performing high-level training for your internal and external teams.

To assist in providing valuable education and training, Contexo Media presents practical workshops: ICD-10-CM Documentation, Compliance and Common Coding Scenarios for Healthcare Professionals. This interactive one-day workshop will cover detailed information about ICD-10-CM documentation and compliance. The topics discussed will help you gain a thorough understanding of documentation as the key in code selection within the ICD-10-CM system.

“Participate in this workshop to benefit from ICD-10 experts who will provide an extensive review of ICD-10-CM and tips for a successful transition in 2014,” said Jerry Okabe, General Manager, Contexo Media. “This one-day workshop provides healthcare professionals with the information they need in understanding the impact on an organization and practical application of ICD-10-CM.”

Presented at three different locations, the entire workshop is tailored to coding changes that will impact a practice´s bottom line. This workshop is recommended for physicians, trainers, clinical documentation improvement specialists, coders, billers, non-physician practitioners, and office managers. This workshop is recommended for coders with ICD -9-CM and/or ICD-10-CM coding experience.

Objectives of this new and highly-anticipated workshop include:

  •     Address the documentation analysis phase of ICD-10-CM coding and discuss the tools required for an effective documentation analysis
  • Understand how documentation impacts work flow and reimbursement, which will assist in developing a corrective action plan
  • Review issues related to uncovering documentation and other coding issues related to medical records (electronic health record/EHR and paper records)
  • Practice with hands-on coding scenarios to help gain experience with some of the more difficult cases in coding ICD-10-CM

Locations include Boston, MA; Dallas, TX; and Orlando, FL so that we can bring this information to a location near you.
