The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a new recording of an ICD-10 training webinar conducted for the National Association of Community Health Centers. The video is available toward the bottom of the ICD-10 Provider Resources page. CMS’ webinar includes information on:
- Changes in ICD code structure, code definitions, and the recurring patterns that help providers to understand the organization and content of ICD-10 codes
- The importance of clinical documentation in order to accurately and thoroughly capture medical concepts to inform ICD-10 coding
- Approaches to assess ICD-10 readiness, identify gaps, prioritize tasks, and monitor progress through continuous quality improvement
