As you’re probably—hopefully—well aware, the transition to ICD-10 is happening in about six weeks. And this is no tiny tweak; on October 1, 2015, all HIPAA-covered healthcare providers in the entire US must begin coding patient diagnoses using codes from the new ICD-10 code set. To help rehab therapists take on this change confidently—and emerge from ICD-Day unscathed—we’ve provided tons of free ICD-10 educational materials, from blog posts and guides to interactive games and webinars. And now, we’re upping the ante with video: introducing ICD-10 Talk with Dr. Heidi Jannenga.
In the first video of this new series, Heidi provides a brief explanation of ICD-10 and how it differs from ICD-9. Stay tuned for more awesome ICD-10 Talk videos, and be sure to check out the rest of the resources available here on ICD10forPT.com. Have a question?
