Part II: Countdown to ICD-10…Tips For a Smooth & Effective Transition
Join us for the second part in our webinar series highlighting the Tips for a Smooth ICD-10 Transition. With ICD-10 fast approaching, it's best to know how to handle the changes your practice will have to deal with as we go through this very complex, yet necessary transition. Going from 14,000 codes to approximately 68,000 codes is a complex process, so documentation is a vital component of a smooth transition to the new code set.
In the second part to our webinar, we will look at some of the most complex transitional codes and discuss the most effective ways of handling them.
The webinar will detail readiness aspects such as:
- Identifying complex ICD-10 transitional codes
- Highlighting transitions from ICD-9 to ICD-10 and the necessary changes
- Developing steps necessary to improve clinical documentation
