Clinical Documentation in the World of ICD10 for the Urgent Care Provider
1 hour Audio and Power Point Presentation
Recorded April 19, 2016
Which ICD-10 code is best? Does my 15-year-old patient with a wrist fracture get an initial, subsequent or sequela code for his injury? Will it even matter how I code this diagnosis? Why does it matter if I just click off on my same UTI and URI templates every day? We have all had these thoughts, so why not dive into the world where your clinical documentation is explored? Understand the ramifications of your documentation patterns, and explore ways to improve your clinical communication skills for reimbursement, medico-legal issues, quality of care, and patient safety.
•Classify ICD10 diagnosis codes based on their chapters and examine the codes most commonly used in urgent care.
•Identify codes for injuries and accidents, including how to properly assign "acute" "subsequent" and "sequela" episodes of care modifiers.
•Determine ways your improved diagnosis code choices can affect your reimbursement in the world of quality-based payment metrics.
•Diagnose common documentation oversights in templated progress notes.
•Connect the dots between your clinical thought process and the words you use in your medical record to ensure accurate and efficient documentation.
