ICD-10-CM Training: Codes and Guidelines - Medical Coding

The 2015 shift to ICD-10 revolutionized the way the healthcare industry records and presents diagnostic information. Comprised of nearly five times as many CM codes as ICD-9, this update introduced countless changes across all aspects of the system. With this course, medical coders and billers will be able to gain a comprehensive knowledge of the ICD-10 code set, enabling them to move forward with more specificity while also incorporating the new code sets and instructional guidelines that went into effect. Now that so many new codes and guidelines are here, coding professionals need to be completely prepared for this drastic shift in the way the industry runs. The necessary code changes apply to every physician office, hospital, medical provider software, payer billing system, and abstracting system, meaning that all facets of the industry must upgrade
