CMS Offers New ICD-10 Content

As part of their ongoing "Road to 10" series, CMS has posted a newly released webcast on ICD-10 documentation and coding concepts for cardiology.  You can access this webcast here, on the webcasts page of The Road to 10: The Small Physician Practice's Guide to ICD-10 website.

An AHIMA-certified coder presents on the webcast, which focuses on unique ICD-10 clinical documentation needs and hot topics for cardiology:

  • • Physician perspective/clinical impact of ICD-10
  • • Documentation requirements for certain conditions
  • • Documentation changes and new concepts
  • • Use of "unspecified" codes in ICD-10

In addition to the newly posted Cardiology webcast, you can find webcasts geared toward Orthopedic Surgery, OB/GYN and Pediatrics.   There will soon be a Family Practice/Internal Medicine webcast as well.  
In addition to these specialty geared webcasts, the website contains a wealth of ICD-10 related information, including a guide to building an action plan, and templates that you can use with that action plan.

We encourage you to visit the website for authoritative information on ICD-10-CM.
