To help you put the final touches on your itinerary, we’re continuing to preview speakers as the countdown forges on. Here’s a sample from last week’s Q&A with Kyra Brown, RHIA, CCS, who will be presenting “Coding of Complications: Past, Present, and Future.”

Q:  Why is coding complications relevant?   

A: Complications have become a “hot topic” in healthcare. You have to look back at the past in order to understand the present situation and the future of coding and documentation of complications. By looking at what’s previously been done, we can identify opportunities to improve and gain an understanding of why older data might incorrectly reflect higher complication rates.
