Coding and clinical documentation of the most frequently coded procedures will be reviewed during this session. The discussion will cover some important issues such as excision versus resection; restriction versus occlusion, and whether to code or not to code. A coding tip for the assigning the character for contrast in radiology procedures will also be provided in this session.
You will experience coding and clinical documentation together, perhaps, for the first time. And this is important because too often ICD-10 education has been frequently done for coding or for clinical documentation improvement, but not as a combined effort. And now with the move to bundled payment methodology, the importance of both coding and CDI becomes very important.
- Discuss coding guidelines and tips for coding the frequent procedures
- Review clinical documentation examples of frequent procedures and documentation gaps
- Review coding and documentation scenarios for frequent procedures
- Discuss the pros and cons of coding some ICD-10-PCS procedures
