Shelley C. Safian, PhD, MAOM/HSM, CCS-P, CPC-H, CPC-I, CHA, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer

Changes to respiratory coding for ICD-10-CM are not insurmountable. Coders simply need to learn what is actually required in order to assign the appropriate codes. During this 90-minute webcast, Shelley C. Safian, PhD, MAOM/HSM, CCS-P, CPC-H, CPC-I, CHA, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer, and Tara L. Bell, RN, MSN, CCM, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer, will explain what information coders need to find in the medical record documentation for ICD-10-CM respiratory conditions. In addition, they will review the ICD-10-CM guidelines and explain how coders will benefit from a strong foundation in anatomy of the respiratory system. They will also discuss changes to asthma and pneumonia terminology and the addition of tobacco use, abuse, and dependence codes.
The appearance of the codes is changing, but the underlying principles are not. ICD-10-CM includes new terminology for asthma coding and additional specificity for pneumonia coding.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Explain respiratory anatomy
- Apply ICD-10-CM coding guidelines for respiratory conditions
- Evaluate physician documentation for completeness for common respiratory conditions
- Assign ICD-10-CM codes for respiratory illnesses
- Upper respiratory (ENT specialty)
- Documentation requirements
- Coding for common conditions, e.g. sinusitis
- Lower respiratory (pulmonology specialty)
- Documentation requirements
- Coding for common conditions, e.g., pneumonia
- New requirements
- Tobacco abuse, dependence, and use
