August 18th, 2011

The AAOMS will host its second ICD-10-CM webinar: A Clinical Documentation Challenge on Wednesday, October 19th, 2011. This 90 minute webinar will focus on the impact of ICD-10-CM on both physicians and coding staff. Among the items discussed will be the need for in-depth physician documentation to capture the increased specificity available in ICD-10-CM. In addition, the webinar will examine how changes in ICD-10-CM will require increased knowledge of medical terminology and pathophysiology among coders. For more information and to register for this webinar please visit http://www.aaoms.org.

OMSs are encouraged to participate along with coding and billing staff as ICD-10-CM will be a major change affecting claim filing and provider documentation.
