ICD-10 Documentation Strategies to Support Severity of Illness (25 pack)

Clinical indicators for sepsis are valuable clues. However, Coding Professionals, CDI specialists, and physicians can’t view the sepsis clinical picture as a cookie cutter condition.loyal listener library No two patients present exactly the same, which results in plenty of grey areas and potential challenges.

ICD-10-CM brings a different perspective to the progress we have made in the understanding of the difference between sepsis and septicemia since 2008 and makes data tracking from ICD-9-CM an opportunity for new learnings.

ICD-10-CM simplifies coding for sepsis provided the physician completely and accurately documents the patient's condition. Coding Professionals need to understand how sepsis coding will change in the new coding system and when to query physicians for additional information. Our speakers will explain the differences in sepsis coding in ICD-10-CM compared to ICD-9-CM, explain the documentation requirements, and review how and when to query for sepsis compliantly.

Expert speakers Gloryanne Bryant, BS, RHIA, CDIP, CCS, CCDS, AHIMA Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer, and Robert S. Gold, MD, will review sepsis clinical information as well as the ICD-10-CM guidelines for coding sepsis. In addition, they will offer best practices for coding and documentation in ICD-10-CM, including physician queries.

Participants of this on-demand webcast will:

  • Learn the differences between coding sepsis in ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM
  • See whether their current documentation meets ICD-10-CM requirements
  • Prepare  for ICD-10 Sepsis querying
