Sepsis Coding & Documentation - On-Demand

loyal listener library

Available ON-DEMAND

Presented on:
Thursday, April 29, 2021 

Presented by: Cesar M. Limjoco, MD

Sepsis continues to be one of the most common conditions sparking physician queries for CDI professionals. It causes nearly 300,000 deaths annually, and its conflicting clinical criteria, confusing coding instructions, and convoluted CMS regulations make capturing sepsis documentation critical.

Furthermore, throughout 2020, COVID-19 patients have experienced an immune response called cytokine storm, which in turn may lead to sepsis. So, how should CDI professionals be differentiating sepsis from a regular infection? The whole conflict boils down to this fundamental issue.

During this program, ACDIS Regulatory Committee member and renowned speaker Cesar Limjoco, MD, will walk participants through the various definitions of sepsis and help them create a plan for effective and compliant query practices.

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

  • Explain the third universal definition of sepsis
  • Differentiate between the various sepsis definitions and their uses
  • Identify relevant ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting and AHA Coding Clinic recommendations for correct code assignment
  • Analyze clinical indicators of selected diagnoses to identify query opportunities
  • Incorporate insight from medical staff, quality, coding, and CDI to develop compliant query and denials management strategies


  • Clinical conditions and sepsis-related disease definitions
    • Sepsis 
    • Septic shock 
    • Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) 
    • Sepsis-related organ failure 
    • Septicemia 
    • Sepsis syndrome 
    • Bacteremia 
    • Cytokine storm
  • Surviving Sepsis Campaign 
    • The Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock 
    • Sequential (Sepsis-Related) Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score 
    • Quick SOFA (qSOFA) bedside screening tool 
  • Coding and documentation conundrums 
    • ICD-10-CM Index to Diseases and Injuries, Tabular List, and the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting
