|12PM-12:45PM CT||ICD-10 Coding: Detailed Information to Drive Performance Improvement|
|Abstract: Accurate coding is an essential next step in fulfilling the objectives of ICD-10 because it is the pivotal point between documentation and the ability to prove quality and performance improvement. Accurate coding will support the analysis of information for decision-making regarding clinical quality and performance, financial results, risk adjustment and care monitoring. Coders and coding systems will be faced with far more complexity in assessing the information in medical records as documentation become increasingly more detailed. This session will offer solutions to address major challenges faced by coders and their IT systems. .
|1PM-1:45PM CT||Clinical Documentation: Front-end Clinical Documentation Under ICD-10|
|Abstract: Requirements for documentation under ICD-10 will call for far more detail and precision than is required in today’s ICD-9 environment. To make the transition, the health system or physician practice will need to perform a clinical documentation assessment (CDA) to determine where there are deficiencies in current documentation methods, and to design clinical documentation improvement (CDI) strategies and educational programs to resolve problem areas. This session will address the types of detail that will be required, offer examples of accurate front-end documentation, and will outline an approach to preparing your organization for the documentation demands of ICD-10.
