Webinar: CDI — The Key to Success with ICD-10
Recorded October 7, 2014
Now that CMS has confirmed a date of October 1, 2015, it is important to stay on track with our ICD-10 preparation. With the extra time comes the opportunity to become better prepared for the transition and we don’t want to lose the momentum we currently have in training and education. Two major concerns we face with the implementation of ICD-10 include decrease in productivity and having adequate documentation to support the increased needs for specificity. There is much work to be done in these two areas.
THIMA is hosting a webinar focusing on documentation issues in ICD-10 including conducting gap analysis and ways that the Clinical Documentation Improvement Process should be working now to meet the increasing levels of specificity required by the new coding systems.
