Myocardial infarction (MI) definitions have evolved. And that's a problem if you are not familiar with the Third Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction. That's because you won't know when a traditional or clinical validation query is indicated. And the unique ICD-10-CM guidelines regarding myocardial infarction and their impact on quality measures compound the clinical challenges. It is really tough to make a diagnosis if you don't understand the current clinical criteria and guidelines.
But now you will know by attending this exclusive ICD10monitor webcast featuring Erica Remer, MD. You will be educated on the current definitions and criteria. Dr. Remer will also review the complicated anatomy and physiology, thus ensuring accurate diagnoses, documentation, querying, and coding of myocardial infarction.
Why This is Relevant:
There is a great deal of clinician and CDI misunderstanding regarding the current definition of myocardial infarction, resulting in under and over diagnosing and thus necessitating frequent querying. It is important to be sure that the diagnosis is made correctly, the code is selected appropriately, and core measures are not triggered needlessly which will impact quality metrics.
At the end of this important webcast, you will be empowered to accomplish the following…
- Distinguish between different types of myocardial infarction according to the Third Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction
- Understand the causative mechanism and treatment of different types of MI
- Apply coding guidelines to myocardial infarction
- Recognize clinical indicators in the medical record suggesting Type 2 MI
- Compose compliant traditional and clinical validation queries regarding myocardial infarction.
