ACOG'S ICD-10 Training
ACOG is offering multiple ICD-10 training opportunities. In addition to Coding Webcasts and Workshops, we will provide articles on ICD-10 coding and links to helpful sites from the ICD-10 page here on the ACOG website. We will post all ICD-10 training schedules, activities, and updates here on the ICD-10 page as we roll out this training.
All future ACOG Coding webcasts will include ICD-10 information and examples.
On Demand Webcasts
Currently there are four ICD-10 webcasts in our archives that may be viewed as pay-per-view events.
- ICD-9 to ICD-10: What to Expect provides details on the primary distinctions between ICD-9 and ICD-10 with examples offered for OB/Gyn practices. The basic principles of ICD coding are addressed and their applicability to ICD-10 is explored.
- ICD-10 Documentation Guidelines discusses the clinical specificity necessary to appropriately assign ICD-10 codes. Clinical examples illustrating both effective and suboptimal documentation will be highlighted.
- ICD-10 Documentation Requirements provides an overview of the conventions, guidelines and classifications used in ICD-10. The general principles of ICD-10 coding will be reviewed as well as the key guidelines applicable to the female genitourinary system and maternity care.
- ICD-10 Diagnosis Coding for Obstetric Care Complications provides a review of the ICD-10 coding requirements for reporting Obstetrical complications, including the clinical specificity necessary to appropriately assign diagnosis codes. The guidelines for reporting and sequencing multiple obstetrical complications will be discussed using clinical examples.
NOTE: CEU credit is only available for live broadcasts. No CEUs are available for archived webcasts.
The ACOG ICD-10 training plan was adjusted slightly due to the ICD-10 implementation delay. Our focus in 2013 is to continue helping our members improve their documentation specificity and diagnostic coding skills. Quality of physician documentation will be one of the most critical issues with successful ICD-10 implementation. The 2013 ACOG Coding Workshops contain an enhanced ICD-10 discussion with multiple ICD-10 examples in each module, in order to continue to introduce and familiarize workshop attendees with the new code set.
The 2014 Coding Workshop schedule will be available in October 2013.
Intensive ICD-10-CM training will commence in the 2014 Coding Workshops. All 2014 Coding Workshops and Webcasts will be taught using only ICD-10 codes. The intensive training will include a new, half-day module available at some of the workshop locations that will focus on code selection exercises. All 2014 workshop attendees will receive an ICD-10 code book, to take home and for use during the course.
