Physicians: Attend free CME seminar on ICD-10
In less than two months the United States will transition from the ICD-9 code set for medical diagnoses to ICD-10. Even though the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced that they will allow flexibility in the claims auditing and quality reporting process, beginning Oct. 1 claims must be submitted (for Medicare/Medicaid and commercial payers) with the ICD-10 diagnosis codes.
No doubt your staff has already begun preparations for the transition; however it is important for physicians to understand how the ICD-10 documentation requirements differ from those of ICD-9. Your staff needs your help. As you have heard, ICD-10 diagnosis coding is much more specific than ICD-9, and your staff can't code something that hasn't been documented.
Join the physicians at Colorado Medical Society and Colorado Access as we present "Documentation Excellence: ICD-10 from a Physician's Perspective," with James M. Taylor, MD, Senior Medical Director of Clinical Analytics/Performance Improvement at Colorado Access.
This 90-minute program is accredited for 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ and will be presented at locations along the Front Range thanks to the support of organizations such as the Arapahoe-Douglas-Elbert Medical Society, Boulder County Medical Society, Clear Creek Medical Society, Colorado Medical Group Management Association, Denver Medical Society, El Paso County Medical Society, Northern Colorado Medical Society and the Pikes Peak Chapter of the Professional Association of Health Care Office Management.
Programs are being scheduled at various locations and hopefully we will have additional programs in the South Metro area. Currently we only have two options in Denver.
