Improve Inpatient Coding for Trauma and Injuries

loyal listener library

Presented on: Wednesday, October 23, 2019 | 1:00–2:30 p.m. Eastern

Presented by: Temeka Davis, RHIT

Provider documentation for injuries must include details regarding the mechanism of the injury, the extent of the tissue or bone damage, and any adverse effects. The documentation should also specify how the injured patient was treated, including the type of operation, the affected body parts, and the procedural approach.

Inpatient coders need a solid understanding of complex anatomical terminology and ICD-10-CM/PCS coding guidelines to select the most specific codes for these services. In addition, they must familiarize themselves with ICD-10-CM codes for fractures, poisonings, and injuries.

During this 90-minute webinar, Temeka Davis, RHIT, will review ICD-10-CM/PCS coding and documentation for trauma and injuries. Through coding case scenarios and examples, she will provide coders with the details they need to decipher provider documentation and select the most specific codes for blunt, penetrating injuries and their treatments. Davis will also review how to query for clarification, link codes to the documentation, and provide documentation tips for procedures. The presentation will conclude with a live Q&A during which attendees can submit questions.

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

  • Break down the ICD-10-CM reporting guidelines to assign the most specific ICD-10-CM codes for traumas, accidents, and injuries
