Overview

There are different types of diabetes, heart blocks, Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN), and fractures, but were you aware that there are different types of myocardial infarctions as well? Carla Gechas, CDS at UW Hospital and Clinics and Sheila Goethel, Coding Manager at RWHC will provide definitions and key features of the Third Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarctions. Session will emphasize CM code and MSDRG differences, and the documentation CDS and Coders can utilize to distinguish between the types. Attendees will have a better understanding of the clinical evidence to utilize when posing physician queries. At the conclusion of this session, attendees will also understand the effects the MI Type has readmission rates as well as observed/expected ration for mortality rates. Join us for this session to learn how to respond NOW to this diagnosis – and how AHIMA will accommodate the different types in fiscal year 2018.
