This healthcare coding webinar will provide an overview of ICD-10-CM, the format and guidelines. It will also explain the differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 to help you understand how it will affect your work and as well as your co-workers and providers.
The authorities have said that there will be no further delay in the implementation of ICD-10-CM on October 1, 2014, and while comprehensive training of this new transaction code set is pre-mature, it is not too early to begin understanding the format and guidelines of ICD-10-CM.
This session will review each chapter in ICD-10-CM and highlight key areas and changes that you need to be aware of. We will discuss the key issues that you might have to contend with in regard to ICD-10-CM implementation, such as staff training, software and/or hardware updates, and even possibly upgrades to more current technology.
Offices will also have to be prepared from a revenue perspective on decreased productivity from staff, and problems that may occur with software and claims processing. How much should an office have on reserve for the possible reduction in reimbursement once ICD-10-CM is implemented? Attend this webinar to get answers to this and many other questions you might have on the upcoming ICD-10-CM.Areas Covered in the Webinar:

ICD-10-CM has a format very similar to ICD-9, but there are some differences to look at and understand. There are new Chapters added, and guidelines all coders are familiar with that will now change. The codes are also now extended to include up to 7 characters of alpha or numeric. ICD-10-CM will affect everyone in the office because all will need some form of education. Will there be trainers within the office, or will you pay someone else to train all staff. There will be costs involved to include staff education, software and/or hardware updates, and even possibly upgrades to more current technology.
