Webinar Replay: ICD-10-PCS Made Easy!

Event Date: 

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Unlike ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS is an entirely new system for coding inpatient procedures. Coding professionals must have a strong knowledge of anatomy, be able to analyze documentation to support coding decisions and have working knowledge of how surgical procedures are performed. This webinar will illustrate the organizing principles of the ICD-10-PCS coding system and provide a frame work to help make the transition “easy”.
