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.
Our ICD-10 training focus in 2015 is to continue helping our members improve their documentation specificity and diagnostic coding skills in preparation for ICD-10 implementation, October 1, 2015. Quality of physician documentation will be one of the most critical issues for successful ICD-10 implementation.
All 2015 Coding Workshops will be taught using only ICD-10 diagnostic codes. The intensive training will include a new, half-day diagnostic coding module available at some of the workshop locations. This new module will focus on a review of the ICD-10 guidelines and coding conventions in addition to code selection exercises.
All 2015 workshop attendees will receive an ICD-10 code book, for use during the course, and to take home.
CODING WEBCASTS AND PUBLICATIONS
All diagnostic coding principles for 2015 Coding Webcasts and Publications will be illustrated using only ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes.
