Description

A well-coded encounter tells the story of the patient’s medical journey.  Recent audit trends show an uptick in uncombining codes that should be combined and a lack of specificity.  Whether this is due to coder error or a failure to edit CAC-recommended codes, this is a concern for data reporting and reimbursement.  Going beyond the guidelines and what all coders should know, this webinar addresses reading the code list after code assignment to ensure specific and accurate reporting.   

Objectives:

  • Identify commonly miscoded conditions
  • Analyze code lists to determine incorrect combinations of codes
  • List steps for ensuring accurate reporting using computer-assisted coding (CAC)

Target Audience

  • Facility Coders (inpatient/outpatient)
  • Professional Fee Coders
  • Clinical Documentation Improvement Professionals
  • Students
