Event Description

ICD-10-CM Coding Fundamentals - 2013 Update!

The time is now to take the first essential steps for a knowledgeable transition from diagnostic coding with ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM/PCS. With the adoption of ICD-10-CM/PCS, there are major implications for every aspect of the health care industry. Education of the HIM workforce is essential. Now is the time to start the education and training of coding professionals so they have the knowledge and confidence to efficiently and accurately code using the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding system.

This is the first in a two-part series of ICD-10 seminars. This first program in the series will focus on ICD-10-CM coding. The second in the series will focus on ICD-10-PCS, procedural codes, and will be conducted in the same locations on May 21 (Newport Beach) and May 23 (Dublin). The registration fees listed here apply to the first program of the series.

This one-day program will provide an overview of ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding fundamentals. The differences and major changes between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM will be discussed as well as the purpose, use, and benefits of the new coding system. This seminar will include a discussion of the structure (format and characteristics) for diagnosis coding for both inpatient and outpatient services using ICD-10-CM Coding Conventions, Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting and ICD-10-CM Tables (Neoplasm and Drug & Chemicals).
