Understanding Clinical Documentation Requirements for ICD-10

Understanding Clinical Documentation Requirements for ICD-10

ICD-10 is one of the most significant changes in our industry's history.  Under ICD-10's more rigorous specificity requirements, physician documentation will need to meet the higher standard as well. Physicians will need to meet the standards and guidelines in order to ensure proper coding and billing practices, otherwise they will risk potential denials and therefore will be at risk for loss of revenue.  Furthermore, A recent study of more than 20,000 audits of physicians' clinical documentation revealed that only 63 percent of current documentation is sufficient for ICD-10's specificity levels.  

 This online course is recorded from a live webinar on March 18, 2015.
