Presented on: Thursday, May 20, 2021 | 1:00–2:30 p.m. Eastern

Presented by: Alba Kuqi, MD, CICA, CCS, CDIP, CCDS, CRCR, CSMC

Assessing renal abnormalities' cause and severity should be the initial approach to kidney disease for all clinical documentation integrity (CDI) professionals. Both chronic and acute phases of kidney disease affect more than 20 million Americans. Over the past year, roughly 30% of COVID-19 patients also had acute kidney injury (AKI), exacerbating the challenges CDI and coding professionals face in accurately capturing these conditions. Having the right knowledge of coding guidelines and quality measure requirements can help.

During this 90-minute webinar, speaker Alba Kuqi, MD, CICA, CCS, CDIP, CCDS, CRCR, CSMC, will explain how to examine the medical record for clinical clues related to chronic and acute kidney disease, identify kidney-related COVID-19 complications, and decipher diagnostics to craft compliant queries. Kuqi will provide CDI and coders with the details they need to delve into provider documentation and code in ICD-10-CM compliantly with Medicare rules and regulations. 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:

  • Explain the importance of CDI and describe how clinical documentation can become critical in the process of documenting COVID-19-related kidney injury
  • Describe the contents of the medical record in patients with COVID-19-related kidney injury
  • Discuss how documentation impacts quality of care, financial planning, healthcare outcomes, and appropriate reimbursement by providing documentation examples
