Time's running out. Is your CDI department prepared for ICD-10? Join Coding Boot Camp Instructor Jillian Harrington, MHA, CPC, CPC-I, CPC-P, CCS, CCS-P, MHP, and CDI Boot Camp instructor Laurie Prescott, MSN, RN, CCDS, CDIP, for a free, April Fool's Day webinar Six Months until ICD-10 Hits: Last Minute Tips for Coding and Improving Physician Documentation, on Tuesday, April 1 at 1-1:45 p.m. Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day, but this is no laughing matter. With just six months left to prepare, HCPro’s ICD-10 instructors have two important questions for you:

  • Are you up to date on the latest ICD-10-CM/PCS guidance?
  • Do you have a process for identifying physician education topics?

If you answered, “no,” “maybe,” “I don’t know,” or “huh?” to either questions, listen in to our free webinar. During this presentation, Jillian Harrington will take you through the latest ICD-10 guidance from the AHA Coding Clinics to make sure you have all of the newest ICD-10 information. The webinar will wrap up with Laurie Prescott addressing one of the ICD-10 transition’s million-dollar questions: How can we train physicians on ICD-10? She will walk you through how to leverage existing data and processes to focus physician teaching efforts. Learning objectives include:

  • Summarize the changes to ICD-10-CM recently released
  • Identify resources in the ICD-10-PCS coding manual
  • Discuss strategies for assessing physician documentation
  • Review methodologies and opportunities for physician education on ICD-10

The most recent ACDIS ICD-10-CM/PCS preparation survey published in the January edition of the CDI Journal illustrates that few organizations have comprehensive CDI-related efforts in place. If you have started a program, let us know what efforts you're doing and how you've managed to get the ball rolling in the comments section below. We'll send free ICD-10 documentation handbooks to the first 10 responses.
