On October 1, 2015, the ICD-9 code sets used to report diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets. The transition will affect all entities and providers covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA). This transition to a replacement diagnosis and inpatient procedure classification system may be challenging for home health providers as a post-acute setting due to the inconsistencies currently experienced in gathering patient history & physical information from referral sources (hospitals, primary and specialist physicians). As an admitting clinician, both the physical therapist and speech language pathologist may be required to complete “therapy only” admissions, including the OASIS C1 data set. Accurate completion of the coding items on the OASIS requires a greater specificity for patient diagnosis, so it is critical that documentation systems and behaviors are assessed to assure that they support coding for ICD-10.
This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the nuances specific to ICD-10, as well as compare/contract with ICD-9 coding conventions and guidelines. Specific examples of coding scenarios specific to patient diagnoses commonly seen by PT, OT and SLP in the home health setting will be presented. Current ICD-10 resources will be reviewed. A ICD-10 Fracture Coding Tool will be provided to assist therapists to ensure that documentation standards for coding these diagnoses in the home health setting are met.
Upon completion of this webinar course, participants will be able to:
1. Describe key components of the ICD10 codes related to fractures and aftercare therapy in the home health setting.
2. Analyze resources for skin tear classifications to accurately code in ICD10 system.
3. Identify documentation requirements for accurate coding of common therapy diagnoses in the home health setting.
4. Apply basic concepts of ICD10 coding in home health therapy patient scenarios.
Target Audience: Clinical Supervisors, Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologist
