Practice Management: Beyond ICD-10: Answers to Current and Future Coding Challenges
The initial phase of ICD-10 implementation is over—but what other coding challenges for ob-gyns lie ahead?
Attend one of ACOG’s award-winning Coding Workshops to learn about new and upcoming coding challenges, and have all of your diagnosis and procedural questions answered. ACOG’s Coding Workshops provide a great opportunity to earn up to 22 CMEs, network with your peers about payment issues, and utilize the knowledge of our expert workshop instructors, Emily Hill, PA, and Brad Hart, MBA, MS, CMPE, CPC, CPMA, COBGC, by asking them your practice-specific payment questions.
The 2016 workshops will help improve your documentation and coding skills for both ICD-10 and CPT and demonstrate how correct coding can help your bottom line.
ACOG’s workshops provide a unique and invaluable resource. They offer attendees the opportunity to ask clinical questions specific to ob-gyn coding directly to a physician member of ACOG’s Coding Committee. Having a Coding Committee member participate at workshops provides a deeper level of knowledge and expertise on the payment process than what is available from other sources. Many faculty members have served on national coding organizations such as the American Medical Association Current Procedural Terminology (AMA-CPT) Editorial Panel and the AMA/Specialty Society Resource Based Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC).
All coding workshop attendees will receive a workbook, which contains a wealth of information and serves as an additional resource for your coding questions. Workbooks for each session contain take-home reference materials and links on a variety of coding topics to assist Fellows following their workshop attendance.
Workshops scheduled for New Orleans, San Diego, and Orlando will have the ICD-10-CM Hands-on Module (Module IV), in addition to Evaluation and Management (Module 1), Gynecologic Surgery (Module 2) and Obstetrics (Module 3) sessions. The remaining 2016 workshops will have content and material from the ICD-10-CM Hands-on Module (4) incorporated. In 2016, in addition to revisiting tried and true workshop locations such as Chicago and Atlanta, ACOG will be hosting a workshop in Austin, Texas for the very first time!
