Description Biography Continuing Education

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease affects more than 5 million Americans. Understanding the disease process and the inter-relationship with emphysema, bronchitis, and asthma is important for accurate coding. This chronic condition requires clear, specific, and accurate documentation to assign the appropriate ICD-10-CM code(s). Guidelines for COPD have changed over time and they provide valuable guidance to assist the coding and clinical documentation integrity (CDI) professional and others in being compliant. During this important webcast, you will become more familiar with these guidelines that help you code COPD in exacerbation and COPD with pneumonia, asthma, and bronchitis.

Why This is Relevant:

Understanding the sequencing of COPD for outpatient or inpatient encounters is critical for coding accuracy, medical necessity, and reimbursement, as you’ll learn in this exclusive ICD10monitor webcast.
