This webinar wraps up our wound care (WC) trilogy series. We explore more of the disease processes commonly seen in the WC center such as osteomyelitis and gangrene. We dissect a couple of ‘real-life’ case examples and conclude the webinar with some of our frequently asked questions from our wound care series.
- Discuss proper coding of osteomyelitis and gangrene in the WC setting
- Differentiate when combination codes should be reported
- Review pertinent coding references relating to WC
- Assign CPT codes for more complicated case examples
