Maria Bounos, RN, MPM, CPC-H, Practice Lead Coding and Reimbursement Products from Wolters Kluwer, will appear on ICD10monitor.com’s “Talk Ten Tuesday” on October 14, 2013 at 10am EDT as part of an expert panel to discuss ICD-10: Now and Then. Register Now!
Envision that it’s Tuesday, October 14, 2014. Now, look back at this date a year ago—October 15, 2013—and try to recall where you were with CAC and CDI and dual coding. What were the some of the financial and clinical analytics you were reviewing at the time? How has that changed? Did you mitigate some of the major risk areas, such as cardiology, orthopedics, and obstetrics? Back to now. This coming Tuesday, October 15, a guest list of outstanding thought leaders has been assembled to help us better understand the “Now and Then” of ICD-10 implementation, including the president-elect of AHIMA, Cassi Birnbaum, vice president of Peak Health Solutions. Former AHIMA president Bonnie S. Cassidy, now the senior director of HIM Innovation for Nuance Communications, will discuss how CAC and CDI go hand-in-hand now and then. Maria Bounos, the practice lead for coding and reimbursement products for Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, will discuss “best practice” examples to help you now as you prepare for the “then.” And Denise M. Johnson, senior director of HIM Consulting for Precyse, will share some of the early indications that she is “now” seeing from dual coding and ICD-10 coding.
