As long as you know the street system and the general layout, you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting to the right address. Check out this video to learn the basic process of navigating to the right diagnosis code in the ICD-10 code set.

    ICD-10 Quick Clips: How to Use External Cause Codes

     By now, you’ve probably seen—and made fun of—more than a few wacky-sounding ICD-10 codes. And while chances are slim that you’ll actually need to code for a patient who has been struck by a macaw or suffered a burn due to his or her water skis being on fire—two situations that would warrant the use of external cause codes—you may very well need to code for some more common (and less funny) external causes of injury. In …

    ICD-10 Quick Clips: Converting ICD-9 Codes into ICD-10

    One of the best ways to prepare your clinic for the ICD-10 transition is to compile a list of ICD-10 codes for your most common patient diagnoses. For many clinics, the first step of that process would be generating a list of the ICD-9 codes they use most frequently. But how do you go about finding the ICD-10 equivalent for each one of those codes? In this video, I provide a simple tutorial on how to translate …

    ICD-10 and Your Claims: 7 Essential Must-Knows

    As we’ve suggested in previous posts , one of the best ways to ensure your practice covers all of its ICD-10 prep work bases is to audit your processes and workflows. By doing so, you’ll identify all the ways you and your staff currently use and interact with ICD-9 codes. If you’ve done that, you’ve no doubt pinpointed one of the largest—and most obvious—ICD-9 touchpoints: your claims. Then, you probably asked yourself (or the almighty Google), “How …

    ICD-10 FAQ Part 4

    Like the many Land Before Time sequels, the versions of our ICD-10 FAQ keep on-a-comin’. But—unlike those beloved dinosaur tales—I don’t anticipate 12 more versions (plus a TV series) will be necessary to cover what’s to come with ICD-10. Still, the questions continue to roll in—albeit a bit slower than they did a couple of months ago. However, most of the inquiries we’ve received in recent weeks have been super specific. That’s why, our most recent webinar—the …

    The Final 48: Your Guide to ICD-10 Transition Day

    For law enforcement officials, the 48 hours immediately following a crime are the most crucial. Why? Because if they haven’t found any leads, identified any suspects, or made any arrests by the time the two-day clock expires, their chances of cracking the case—and, in some cases, saving lives—dwindle significantly. And while ICD-10 isn’t exactly a life-or-death situation, those HIPAA-covered providers making the switch will be up against a similar make-it-or-break-it timeframe. The only difference—besides the whole crime …
