Helping Chapter Members Prepare for the Future
Even though the compliance date for ICD-10 implementation is October 1, 2014 and may feel like a long way off, there are many things you can begin to do to prepare.
Medical record documentation for the specificity found within ICD-10-CM will pose unique challenges for medical practices. AAPC can help with documentation readiness assessments, as well as training for implementation.
While it is still too soon for code set training, there are other ways for coders to prepare such as training for anatomy and pathophysiology. AAPC’s online course will help you navigate the specificity required to understand the new code set.
