Malinda will show you what the implications the differences between ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS and ICD-9 may have for billing, reimbursement, data collection and reporting.
Personal experience in becoming certified as a trainer, and challenges I face in teaching providers and nurses who select their own diagnosis codes in an electronic health record will be shared.
