THE ART OF ICD-10 CODING: 

Presented by:  OASIS Answers, Inc.

Speaker: Sparkle Sparks, PT, MPT, COS-C,  Senior Associate Consultant, OASIS Answers, Inc.

AHIMA Approved ICD-10-CM Coding Instructor

 

This workshop is structured to develop beyond the basic ICD-10-CM coding skills.  It is designed with intermediate coders in mind.  This critical level of knowledge, along with application through workshop exercises and coding scenarios, will lead to coding accuracy and regulatory compliance.  Special emphasis on how to use source documents will assist coders in knowing where to look for guidance when coding in their agencies.  

We recommend a review of the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting for 2018, pages 8 – 18 of the document, found at: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/icd/10cmguidelines_fy2018_final.pdf prior to the workshop.  These pages describe and define the Coding Conventions (Section I.A) & General Coding Guidelines (Section I.B).  It is expected the that intermediate coders already possess this foundational knowledge and will not be the focus of this class. 

 Your pre-class efforts will greatly enhance your learning experience during this workshop.

 

It is CRITICAL that you bring an ICD-10-CM Coding Manual in order to participate in the various exercises that reinforce the concepts covered in the course.
