Given the inherent environment of the average ER, it is easy to overlook the significance of proper completion of the medical record. Poor documentation precludes the ability to code a specific service, and can result in down coding a visit to a lesser code in order to ensure compliance with documentation and coding rules and regulations.

This webinar will give your providers specialty-specific information and tools they can use every day to accurately and completely report emergency medical services.

Topics include:

  • Documentation concepts and financial considerations
  • Key chart elements - History, Exam, and Medical Decision Making

On October 1, 2014, the ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets. ICD-10 codes are more descriptive with a major focus on anatomy, physiology, and precise locations and causes of injuries and illnesses. In order to reduce the risk of a reduction in group revenue, every provider should undergo basic training that will ensure adequate preparation regarding documentation that will support the specificity required for the new ICD-10 code sets.

To that end, Dr. John Stimler of Bettinger, Stimler & Associates, and the BSA Healthcare Advisory Group has constructed this web-based ICD-10 Provider Documentation Training Webinar, which intermixes his clinical expertise with knowledge that emergency medicine providers will require to transition to ICD-10.

Topics that are addressed in the ICD-10 Emergency Medicine Provider Training Webinar include:
  • ICD-10 Advantages
  • Differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10
  • ICD-10 Myths
  • ICD-10 Format, Structure, and Organization
  • Critical Provider Documentation Considerations
  • Top ICD-10 Codes for the specialty of Emergency Medicine.
