Major Changes to ICD-10-CM for 2017

Change is a constant in healthcare and nowhere in the field is that more prevalent than in medical coding. With the implementation of ICD-10 in October, 2015, we’ve seen a drastic change in the way we code and it looks like there is far more change on the horizon. For the year 2017 there have been some pretty significant changes made to the ICD-10-CM guidelines. This session will address the major changes and what they will mean to your organization.

The discussion will:

  • Provide guidance on both new and revised ICD-10-CM guidelines including clarification on some of ICD-10’s more ambiguous terms and concepts like “with” and laterality
  • Provide understanding of some of the new guidelines specific to new ICD-10 codes and code categories
  • Provide an understanding as to how these changes will impact both current and future coding practice;

and more.
