How about the procedure title – can’t I code from that? Join us as we walk through the information from an orthopedic fracture repair operative report and discover more than 13 concepts that must be considered and researched to correctly code the diagnosis and procedures!

    Have always had trouble with fixation devices. This will be helpful in the future. And modifier review was great.

  3. Sara S

    I am an ED coder and was specifically interested in global-period profees for ED physicians when seeing the patient for post-surgical complications. This would have been a helpful segment to include.

  4. Christina R

    I enjoyed the interaction with the polls. It was nice to be able to choose answers and get immediate feedback while also seeing what others are choosing.

  5. Iris D

    Always make sure you read the entire OP report and pay attention to edits.

  6. Janell B

    Great reminder to use the 7th character to report initial, subsequent, and sequela. I always love the polling questions as they bring about good discussion.
