Workshop Overview:
Developed as a means of tracking causes of death, the ICD system is now used by the World Health Organization (WHO) to collect causes of morbidity and mortality. The US is behind other industrialized countries as we still utilize the ICD-9 system of coding. On Oct 1, 2013, the US will change from ICD-9 to ICD-10 for medical diagnoses in home health. This transition will require major changes for agencies. Join Jennifer Warfield as she presents an introduction to the transition. Learn what you should be doing now, important dates to remember and ways to start preparing your staff

Workshop Objectives:
· Understand current ICD guidelines and how important these are to agency survival

· Discuss how to get support and upper management buy-in for preparation

· Understand how to start preparing for ICD-10

· Review plan for organizing team and for implementation effort

· Decide what materials will be necessary to begin

· Different coding scenarios
