Physician training will include documentation elements that physicians should start incorporating now. Examples of coding common diagnoses in ICD-10 will be provided to highlight important and necessary details that will need to be incorporated in the provider's documentation. Administrative training will include how to assess your vendor's readiness with experts in the field providing important step-by-step instructions to determine what actions you may need to take now in order to prepare for ICD-10 implementation.

Each month we will cover topics to enhance physician understanding of the documentation requirements with ICD-10-CM.  We will begin with the ICD-10-CM documentation and coding training followed by what we will call an “administrative checkpoint” which will include critical topics to help your practice stay on track to ensure a smooth transition.
