ICD-10 Summer School with Mr. Mike

Don’t waste away your lazy days of summer! Join HDG for online summer school as we take an informative and fun deep dive into the world of ICD-10-CM coding. In this three part webinar series, you will learn coding from the ground up, starting with opening the manual through completing the finished code. The history and development of ICD-10-CM will be discussed, as well as the structure of the code. Together we will study the manual layout and how to get to the ICD-10-CM promise land with your final code. The series will explore each chapter in the manual relevant to the SNF communities, broken down by disease process and body system. Guidelines and tips will also be included to help you graduate to coding success!
