Sharpen your “Inpatient Procedural” coding skills with an Advanced ICD-10-PCS Coding Course. This continuing education is provided in a “flipped classroom” online format. You will have access to prerecorded presentations of material covering each lesson. In addition, you will have access to an online “live” session to work through the coding of case studies, real life examples and scenarios. This is not an “independent study” course in that it does have live sessions that will provide interaction with the instructor who is a coding professional. Each 1 hour session will grant you 1 CEU.
Lessons will discuss the common root operations for the body system as well as devices and qualifiers that are unique to this body system. Coding examples for the body system will also be included.
Learners will be able to:
- Evaluate an operative report, identify and select the appropriate ICD-10-PCS root operation(s).
- Evaluate an operative report, identify and select the appropriate body parts.
- Evaluate an operative report, identify and select the appropriate approach(es).
- Evaluate an operative report, identify and select body system specific devices and qualifiers.
- Evaluate an operative report and build the appropriate ICD-10-PCS code.
Course Format: Each lesson will require a reading assignment as well as an assessment to ensure understanding of material and provide you with documentation of your earned CEU. A prerecorded presentation will be provided to assist in clarifying the reading assignment. An interactive live session with a coding educator/professional will conclude each lesson for an additional CEU. Assignments are included in the book
Lesson 1: Respiratory System
Lesson 2: Circulatory System
Lesson 3: Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary System
Lesson 4: Skeletal System: Bones and Joints
Lesson 5: Urinary System
