In today's medical landscape, diagnostic coding is about much more than supporting the medical necessity of a service. Correct diagnoses are crucial to risk adjustment, value based payment, and resource allocation. Yet correctly coding diagnoses is not always straightforward, or even intuitive. ICD-10-CM requires a thorough understanding of conventions within the code set, rules that reside outside the code set. This workshop will review best practices for improving your diagnostic coding, an overview of Coding Clinic for ICD-10-CM, and a look at the code changes for 2018. Come with an open mind, because what you think you know may not be the correct way to abstract diagnoses from the medical record. This workshop will help coders for all specialties improve the accuracy and specificity of coding, introduce information on how new codes are developed, teach correct technique for code lookup, and identify common coding errors you will want to avoid.
