Workshop Description

Featuring National Home Health Expert and Trainer, Sparkle Sparks, PT MPT COS-C HCS-D

This workshop is structured to develop basic ICD-10-CM coding skills and foster good habits crucial to coding success. This critical foundational knowledge, along with application through workshop exercises and coding scenarios, will lead to coding accuracy and regulatory compliance.

Be prepared to learn concepts and strategies that will teach you how to beautifully paint the picture of your diagnoses with numbers!   This workshop is appropriate for all levels of coders.

The Art of ICD-10-cm Coding Program Outline:

  • Awareness of the Differences Between “Clinical Speak” & the Language of Coding
  • Selection & Sequencing Criteria for Primary & Secondary Diagnoses
  • Overview & Instruction for Proper Use of the ICD-10-CM Coding Manual
  • Recognition & Use of Coding Conventions & Guidelines for Accurate Code Selection
  • Emphasis on New Features of ICD-10
  • Discussion & Impact of CMS’ PPS & OASIS-C1 on Home Health Coding
  • Exploration of the Relationship Between Z Codes, Case Mix Diagnoses & M1025
  • Exercises & Scenarios to Reinforce Critical Knowledge for Successful Coding


MANDATORY: YOU MUST BRING AN ICD-10-CM CODING MANUAL TO THE CLASS.    

MANUALS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO PURCASE ON-SITE.

Additional Workshop Details

Source documents will be provided and reviewed at the workshop. This guidance will allow participants to further their education outside the class and arm them with the tools to research answers to questions that arise in their agencies. Mastering coding skills takes practice and knowing where to find guidance ensures coding accuracy and regulatory compliance.

This class is designed with intermediate coders in mind.  We recommend a review of the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting for 2018, pages 8-18 of the document, found at: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/icd/10cmguidelines_fy2018_final.pdf prior to the workshop.  These pages describe and define the Coding Conventions (Section I.A) & General Coding Guidelines (Section I.B).  It is expected that intermediate coders already possess this foundational knowledge as it will not be the focus of this class.  Your pre-class efforts will greatly enhance your learning experience.
