Members will gain understanding of the history of ICD, the revision process, the creation of the Common Ontology and Content Model, structural changes made to ICD, challenges encountered with interoperability during development and the potential digital abilities of this new generation of ICD.
The inpatient documentation improvement program is working like the Stanley Cup champs, but now sights are set on the next generation. This session will review the skill set needed for OP CDI staff, the opportunities that exist in both the facility and provider records, and the data analytics to measure outcomes needed to set departments up for a CDI win.
This session will take students through the best practices for preparing for the RHIT exam and how to be successful with multiple choice exams. Students will gain an educator’s insight into assessment and learn how to explore the question “What are they really asking?”.
This 2 hour session will review images and CPT coding guidelines associated with simple and complex diagnostic and interventional percutaneous procedures performed in the cardiac catheterization lab and interventional radiology suite. This will be an overview and exposure to the vast number of procedures currently performed at most hospitals and their appropriate documentation and coding.
Caring for patients remotely is not new, but the current Public Health Emergency has changed many of the rules. This session reviews the rules before this pandemic and how payers and providers are coping now. We will detail Medicare’s rules and share tips on determining private payer rules.
This presentation will deliver information from an auditor’s perspective in order to enhance the audience’s understanding of compliant coding. Tips on avoiding documentation traps will also be covered and the audience will be given a sneak preview into 2021 E/M changes.
At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will: Define an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) List the components of an AWV and how it is coded, including split bill scenarios Understand how accurate documentation contributes to accurate data capture and reporting Gain strategies to engage providers and coders in the importance of AWV and how it benefits patients and the overall community
Advanced Care Planning is a commonly performed service, but one that is often lacking compliant documentation. Learn how to properly capture Advanced Care Planning services and other time based evaluation and management visits.
Beginning with the conventions and ending with the criteria for reporting additional diagnoses, we will teach this material from the perspective of an auditor, giving you insight to help you avoid critical and costly coding errors.
While providers are responsible for establishing and supporting a diagnosis, CDI and Coding professionals are responsible for ensuring that the health record reflects the patient’s clinical scenario and is coded accurately.
This presentation will cover anatomy/physiology, inpatient Case Study (TAVR, and additional challenging cardiac procedures), outpatient Case Study (CABG using multiple grafts, PTCA, PTA, thrombectomy, etc) to name a few.

Through discussion of the current clinical issues, case examples with their coded data, and review of opportunities to query, our expert nurse and HIM professional will guide you through antimicrobial resistance through the lens of clinical documentation integrity and coding.
The health care industry is currently undergoing monumental changes in the U.S. Transition from utilization-based to outcomes-based payment structures has resulted in declining net revenue for many healthcare organizations.
