Diagnosis coding accuracy is extremely important for PDPM success. Coding problems are the same no matter the setting. In this three-part webinar series, well-known coding expert Lisa Selman-Holman will cover the most common ICD-10 coding mistakes:

  • Fractures
  • Symptom coding and the ‘with’ convention
  • Diabetes and hypertension coding

Lisa teaches the guidelines with real-life examples, so you can be on the right track for PDPM. By the end of this webinar series, you will be able to apply coding conventions and guidelines to common scenarios, which will ultimately help you prepare for PDPM coding success.

What you’ll learn

  • Identify why diagnosis coding requires competent expertise
  • Identify the top 3 coding issues identified by LTC nurses as problematic
  • Explain the coding of fractures
  • Explain the guidelines for the coding (or not coding) symptoms
  • Explain the ‘with’ convention and why it changes the coding of diabetes and hypertension
