Specialty-specific ICD-10 webinars for physicians now available

The clock is ticking toward the October 1, 2014 implementation deadline for ICD-10, and there’s no question the transition is a major one for physicians and their practices. The Wisconsin Medical Society has created a series of ICD-10-CM learning opportunities for physicians in order to make that transition easier. And because we understand how valuable your time is, these 30-minute activities are available on demand through the Society’s Continuing Education Center.

The series includes 20 individual specialty-focused sessions related to ICD-10’s impact on medical documentation as well as ICD-10: What Physicians Need to Know. This introductory program, which is recommended for completion before the specialty activities, covers the broad fundamentals and impact of ICD-10. Specialties available immediately are anesthesiology, emergency medicine, endocrinology, family medicine, gastroenterology, obstetrics/gynecology, oncology, pediatrics, radiology and urology. To view a list of additional specialties and dates they will be available, click here.

Approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, these activities assist specialists in 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.
