The American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Coding Clinic Audio Conference Series next live broadcast, Optimizing Anatomy and Physiology Review will be presented on May 20, 2011 from noon-1:45 CDT.
Because ICD-10 requires a more in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, this review will be beneficial to all health information management staff. Presenters Nelly Leon-Chisen, RHIA of the AHA and Kellie A. Henderson, CCS, CCS-P of 3M Health Information Systems will review anatomy for ICD-10-PCS. This live broadcast will also discuss the multi-axial structure, provide an overview and comparison of ICD-10-PCS to ICD-9-CM, explain how to translate to ICD-10-PCS values and will review surgical reports for root-operation values.
