This workshop is designed for the healthcare professional who is knowledgeable and experienced with ICD-9-CM and needs to understand the basic structure, guidelines and coding protocols of ICD-10-CM for diagnosis coding. The federal government has mandated that ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM for diagnosis coding in all types of healthcare services, effective October 1, 2014.
ICD-10-CM is significantly different in structure, definitions, coding guidelines, and coding conventions. Healthcare professionals need to understand how to correctly code in ICD-10-CM in order to receive timely and correctreimbursement. Understanding the coding system structure will also allow the healthcare organization to identifythe clinical data that will be necessary in order to code correctly.
ICD-10-CM Workshop objectives are as follows:
• Introduction to structure of ICD-10-CM and its significant differences from ICD-9-CM
• Format of ICD-10-CM codes
• Coding conventions and guidelines
• ICD-10-CM coding processes and chapter-specific instructions
• Practice coding ICD-10-CM using diagnostic scenarios
Healthcare professionals who might benefit from this workshop include, but are not limited to the following:
Experienced professional coders may be interested in this workshop as an introduction to ICD-10-CM, but it is not designed to be a mastery level coder training program.
This workshop assumes some experience and knowledge of ICD-9-CM coding and is not ap- propriate for those with no prior experience or knowledge of coding. This workshop is approved for 7 continuing education credits by the American Health Information Management Association.
