Learn more about this event

7 years ago the HITECH Act authorized incentive payments to increase Electronic Health Record (EHR) adoption. This financial inducement was successful with 78% of practices utilizing EHR systems in 2013, up from just 18% in 2001. With this significant shift to electronic records, for many practices, came the unintended consequence of physicians/providers selecting diagnosis codes by number (ICD-9 and then ICD-10-CM). Physicians/providers were untrained in the use of the International Classification of Disease (ICD) system, so this transition was and continues to be fraught with problems. These include issues of not just specificity but sequencing of codes, companion codes and when to use co-morbidity codes. All of which pose a compliance risk for your practice. This audio conference will offer you tips and tools on how to ensure that correct concise codes with appropriate levels of specificity are selected. It will also offer ideas and solutions to the problem of compliant coding and submission of claims.
