Bring your entire team for our broadcast of Orthopedic Coding: Resolve Documentation and Coding Challenges for Major Joint Procedures at 1 p.m. (Eastern), Monday, June 29.
 
Orthopedic coding, for both procedure and diagnosis codes, remains challenging due to the complex nature of bones and joints and the specificity of the codes. Current problems with physician documentation will only be magnified with the greatly expanded code set for reporting orthopedic diagnoses in ICD-10-CM.
 
During this 90 minute webcast, our expert speaker, Nena Scott, MSEd, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P, CCDS, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer, will review the anatomy of major joints, such as the knees, shoulders, hips, and ankles, and note the important terms coders need to know to report the proper procedures. She will also review common documentation problem areas and potential concerns with the expanded orthopedic codes in ICD-10-CM.
