Clinical Documentation: Providing Clarity for ICD-10 & SNOMED - Part 2

Return to Calendar
Training
Date/Time:
June 11
Location:
Adobe Connect

The California Area IHS will host a two-part online training for documentation clarity and coding accuracy for ICD-9 in preparation for SNOMED and ICD-10.  

A 12-month delay in the deadline does not mean medical practices should put off their ICD-10 plans for 12 months. Instead, resources should be allocated over the next 17 months. This gives everyone a chance to strengthen their business practices and identify re-training needs.

Documentation practices is the No. 1 driver for success in SNOMED and ICD-10. There will be significant changes required in clinical documentation, specifically in the areas of disease specificity, anatomical site and laterality, complication and manifestations, obstetrics, and correct use of medical terminology and naming. Providers must adhere to these changes to increase the specificity of the codes as well as decrease the potential for coding errors and unpaid claims that could impact reimbursement or quality of care.

Healthcare providers will have to become familiar with the SNOMED terminology to use their EHRs and qualify for Meaningful Use incentives.  That work will make it easier to document the specificity required for ICD-10 implementation.

Part #1:

Date:  Wednesday, May 7, 2014  

Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm PST

This session will include an overview of SNOMED and the ICD-10 coding system.

Part #2:

Date:  Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm PST

This session will focus on coding scenarios to improve documentation clarity.
