Parkinson's disease (PD) is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system.
Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease each year and about 500,000 have the disease, according to the National Institutes of Health. The associated complications, such as dementia and dysphagia, have a significant impact on short- and long-term care, making it all the more essential that coding and clinical documentation integrity professionals continue to nurture and build knowledge of the disease processes as a core competency area.
ICD-10-CM coding of Parkinson's disease and the associate complications are critical to data quality and integrity. Learning more about this disease, the manifestations/complications along with documentation and diagnostic coding is vital. Accurate diagnostic coding can impact outcomes, quality scores, and reimbursement, as will be demonstrated in this exclusive ICD10monitor webcast.
Why This is Relevant:
Knowing the signs, symptoms, and associated complications of Parkinson's disease can help improve clinical coding and clinical documentation integrity. Under Medicare Advantage, Parkinson's disease is a hierarchical category condition (HCC) that can impact reimbursement.
