The Knoxville Area Health Information Management (KAHIMA) Coding Roundtable will be held via video conferencing/WebEx on June 16, 2020 at 4:00 PM EDT. We hope that you will join us.
Our invited speaker is Oak Ridge and Knoxville native, James S. Kennedy MD, the president and chief medical officer of CDIMD, a 20-year clinical documentation integrity and medical informatics advocate who will update us on the Coding Clinic, 2nd Quarter, 2020 effective May 27, 2020, and on other Coding Clinic issues pertinent to CDI and coding. Learn more about Dr. Kennedy and CDIMD here. Yes, he’s a Vol (BA – Knoxville, MD – Memphis).
Dr. Kennedy’s lecture will last for 2 hours and will have a time for questions and answers, so be prepared to ask your toughest CDI and coding questions to stump the professor. Covered topics will include ventilator-associated pneumonia, sepsis due to aspiration pneumonia, chronic DVT without symptoms, when treated with anticoagulation, puerperal sepsis, and other topics from this and previous Coding Clinic issues.
