Thursday, February 18, 2016
Lori-Lynne A. Webb, CPC, CCS-P, CCP, CHDA, CDIP, COBGC, AHIMA-approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer
Level of Program
Even before ICD-10 implementation, coders often struggled with documentation that was incomplete or not specific enough to assign the proper codes for diagnoses and procedures. With the new coding system, additional issues have been introduced to make accurately coding records even more challenging.
During this on-demand program, expert speaker Lori-Lynne A. Webb, CPC, CCS-P, CCP, CHDA, CDIP, COBGC, and AHIMA-approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer, reviews actual records to highlight common issues coders face with provider documentation and recommends strategies for accurate reporting.
She uses these records to identify details frequently missed in common diagnoses, such as diabetes, as well as what providers need to document for chronic and acute diseases so coders can report the most accurate ICD-10-CM code.
Webb also reviews what coders need to know about signature requirements on medical documentation and how to work with providers to avoid risk.
At the conclusion of this on-demand program, participants will be able to:
- Understand the correct and acceptable signature requirements for documentation
- Identify methods for encouraging providers to clearly document chronic and acute conditions, as well as conditions commonly missing specificity required by ICD-10-CM
- Assess, audit, and correct discrepancies found between billing and medical records
Who should listen?
- Health information managers
- Coding and billing staff and managers
- Medical record staff
- Revenue cycle coordinators and manager
- Review correct documentation—what is acceptable and unacceptable for signatures
- Look at reducing discrepancy between diagnoses billed and diagnoses documented in the records
- Discuss documentation for chronic and acute diagnoses as well as specific conditions, such as diabetes and anemia
- Review appropriate ways to amend records, bill for “missing” documentation, and determine when to query
- Live Q&A
