ICD-10-CM 2 Day Workshop

WHERE TO BEGIN WITH ICD-10-CM Codes
ICD-10-CM 2-day Workshop for Hospice
Oct. 27-28, 2015 Download brochure
TX & NM Hospice Organization, Austin, TX 8:30 AM - 4:15 PM

Effective implementation of ICD-10-CM by  October 1, 2015 is critical in the success of your Hospice organization.  The practice of accurate coding requires your staff have an in-depth understanding of the coding conventions, general coding guidelines, and chapter specific guidelines.  Coding in the hospice world has been a hot topic with increasing scrutiny.  This workshop is designed to assist the learner in application of correct coding guidance and decrease the risk of medical review and/or denial of claims.
Why you should attend:

  • Inaccurate coding could bring your billing processes to a screeching halt.
  • Scrutiny of medical review for inaccurate coding.
  • The specificity of a new diagnosis code set will demand more hospice physician involvement and supporting documentation.
  • Decreased productivity of staff with implementing the ICD-10-CM code set is of concern.
  • Training as part of your ICD-10-CM Gap Analysis needs to be started now to ensure that agencies are prepared.

Presenter Lynn Speckels, RN, BSN, COS-C, HCS-D, AHIMA Approved ICD-10 Trainer will share her vast experience in this workshop. Participants will learn several key strategies to meet the challenges ahead, including how to:  

  • Distinguish the differences between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes.
  • Identify ICD-10-CM coding conventions
  • Distinguish ICD-10-CM coding guidelines
  • Complete a minimum of 5 coding scenarios using correct ICD-10-CM codes

The ICD-10 Coding Workshop will be held Oct. 27-28, 2015 (Tues/Weds) at the TX & NM Hospice Organization, 1108 Lavaca, 7th Floor, Austin, TX 78701

ICD-10-CM Coding Manual Requirement
Since there will be hands on practice, it is imperative that you bring a draft ICD-10-CM coding manual with you. Do not spend a lot of money on the current edition as it is in draft form until the fall.  Your staff will need this time to practice coding in both ICD-9 and ICD-10 now in order to be proficient come October 1, 2015!
Reasonably priced draft ICD-10-CM coding manuals are available from Amazon.com. The instructor(s) are AHIMA Approved ICD-10 Trainers and will be using Decision Health’s 2014 ICD-10-CM Preliminary Coding Manual.
