The purpose of this webinar is to assist SNF staff in understanding the basics of the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10) and the specifics of coding in the LTC environment. CMS has provided numerous training sessions to hospitals and physicians; but not SNF organizations and staff. Preparing for a new system, like ICD-10, involves planning, calculating the scope of work, determining timing and the learning "curve," and securing an adequate budget to accomplish the task. Recognizing the consequences of and improving the choices we make as we approach the ICD-10 transition is the focus of this webinar. Some SNFs may still have some work to do to meet the new transition deadline of Oct. 1, 2015.
1. Learn more about coding basics and transition issues as they apply specifically to SNFs.
2. Understand the scope of ICD-10 implementation.
3. Develop a plan for managing the ICD-10 transition issues.
