ICD-10-CM incorporates much greater clinical detail Than ICD-9-CM. The terminology and disease classification have been updated to be consistent with current clinical practices.

Leveraging the ICD-10 investment will allow organizations to move beyond compliance to achieve competitive Advantage. The cost of doing nothing may be greater than implementation. So why delay?


The course aims to provide audience with an overview of medical coding, overview of ICD-10’s guidelines for diagnostic coding and reporting

ICD-10’s guidelines for diagnostic coding and reporting
Effects on clinical documentation
Effects on physician reimbursement
Impact on overall health quality and patient care
Comparison on ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM
