The guidelines for principal diagnosis selection involving heart failure have changed over the years, as has the frequency of congestive heart failure as a secondary diagnosis. Heart failure is also a key component of quality measures and minimizing avoidable readmissions, which makes it even more important for coders and CDI specialists to know the rules behind reporting heart failure.

Join Robert S. Gold, MD, and Gloryanne Bryant, BS, RHIA, RHIT, CCS, CDIP, CCDS, on Friday, March 13, at 1 p.m., Eastern, for the webinar “Heart Failure: Identify Key Coding, Documentation, and Quality Challenges.” During the session, the speakers will use case studies and sample queries to explain how to properly identify heart failure. They will discuss the similarities and differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10-CM codes for various related diagnoses, and review how heart failure coding and documentation affects quality measures.
