ICD-10 Documentation and Coding Concepts Webcast: Orthopedics
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) invites you to view a newly released webcast on ICD-10 documentation and coding concepts for orthopedics.
This webcast is the first in the CMS “Road to 10” series designed to help you with ICD-10 clinical documentation specific to your medical specialty.
To view the webcast please visit cms.gov/ICD10 for a link to “Road to 10,” then click on the “Webcast” tab located in the left-hand navigation bar.
An AHIMA-certified coder presents on the webcast, which focuses on unique ICD-10 clinical documentation needs and hot topics for orthopedics:
- Physician perspective/clinical impact of ICD-10
- Documentation requirements for certain conditions
- Documentation changes and new concepts
- Use of "unspecified" codes in ICD-10
CMS will also offer other webinars in the “Road to 10” series that will follow the same outline and objectives for other specialties, including cardiology, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and family practice and internal medicine. Stay tuned for updates on when those webcasts are posted!
