AHA Coding Clinic for ICD-9-CM released its second round of ICD-10 coding guidance in its First Quarter 2013 issue. Recently published in the CDI Journal section of the website, HCPro CDI Education Director Cheryl Ericson, MS, RN, CCDS, CDIP, says the guidance contains information regarding diagnosis clarification, but also instances in which a CDI specialist may be called upon to clarify a procedure.

Other than debridement of pressure ulcers, procedures rarely need to be clarified in ICD-9, but this paradigm may be changing under ICD-10. ACDIS members can read her recap of the issue with an eye toward what it means for CDI specialists.

To become an ACDIS member, call our Member Relations Department at 877-240-6586 or visit the CDI Marketplace.
