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.
