Respiratory system diagnoses can be complicated, as coders must have knowledge of respiratory system anatomy, associated coding guidelines, and the latest ICD-10-CM codes and guidance. The complexity of the respiratory system, frequent holes in provider documentation, and overall lack of clinical criteria knowledge can make reporting the most specific diagnoses more difficult for conditions such as pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and bronchitis.

Join expert speakers Nena Scott, MSEd, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P, CCDS, and Felisa M. Tennant, MIS, RHIA, CCS, CHPS, for this 60-minute webinar as they discuss the 2018 ICD-10-CM coding and guideline changes and challenges for the respiratory system. The speakers will review recent Coding Clinic updates related to respiratory conditions, present pertinent coding and documentation guidelines, and explain best practices for clinical documentation of respiratory conditions.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe ICD-10-CM guideline and code changes for respiratory conditions
  • Properly sequence COPD with respiratory conditions based on documentation
  • Explain best practices for clinical documentation of respiratory conditions
  • Present pertinent coding and clinical documentation guidelines for respiratory conditions to providers, coders, and CDI staff
