RAC Focus: Coding & Documentation of UTI

 

In this course, the fourth in our series of painting the perfect documentation picture through the clinical palette and techniques, there is an assumption of a base knowledge of coding ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes. This session is geared specifically towards coding for inpatient facility services; however, physician office coders will also gain a better understanding of the diagnosis and appropriate code selection for UTIs and related conditions.
