The Wisconsin Medical Society has created a series of ICD-10 learning opportunities for physicians, and five new specialty-focused sessions have now been added to the 10 activities previously posted to the Society’s Continuing Education Center. The new sessions focus on general surgery; ophthalmology; orthopedics, injuries; orthopedics, musculoskeletal disease; and otolaryngology.
These 30-minute activities are available on demand allowing physicians to complete them as their schedules allow. In addition to the specialty-specific sessions, there is an introductory program, ICD-10: What Physicians Need to Know, which is recommended for completion before the specialty activities. Additional activities will be added in the near future for a total of 20 sessions plus the introduction.
Approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, these activities will educate specialists on identifying gaps in medical record documentation in preparation for ICD-10 as well as tools/methods to improve documentation accuracy. They are designed to explore specific ICD-10 diagnosis categories within each specialty that will require certain documentation details in order to achieve coding specificity.
