The most commonly performed surgery in America right now is the Cesarean section, while at the same time, obstetric-related encounters are running at all-time highs. Today, the problem is coding OB accurately and compliantly. And that problem is compounded because OB docs and nurses communicate through their own unique language of abbreviations.
No wonder OB coding is extremely challenging! Fortunately, Erica Remer, MD will demystify ICD-10 obstetrics coding during an exclusive upcoming ICD10monitor webcast, while reviewing the new 2017 ICD-10-CM codes for OB.
Dr. Remer will provide the physician perspective on this complex topic as she tackles the selection of principal diagnosis and sequencing in obstetrics and reviews secondary diagnosis and complication coding concepts with examples and anecdotes.
