Description Biography Continuing Education

Your coders aren't doctors. Yet they're expected to understand anatomy, why procedures are performed and, of course, documentation of the procedure. Any knowledge gap can undermine your revenue and compliance objectives. This is especially true for spinal procedures, which require a high degree of coding specificity and accuracy, but are inherently difficult for non-clinicians to fully comprehend.

For this two-part ICD10monitor webcast series, brought to you by popular request, our expert presenter, Cari Greenwood, will walk you through ICD-10-PCS and CPT ® coding for several commonly performed spinal procedures. Besides essential knowledge about spinal anatomy and procedures, your coders will gain confidence, leading to a boost in coding productivity, while supporting your drive to capture the optimal, fully compliant reimbursement.
