This highly interactive workshop for novice coders, or those who never had these lessons, teaches the essential basics and beyond for the most accurate application of diagnosis codes. Case studies, exercises and many opportunities to ask questions reinforces understanding of the concepts presented. A current coding manual is required for class participation.

Mastering coding skills takes practice and knowing where to find guidance ensures coding accuracy and regulatory compliance. Coding related guidance documents are provided in the handout and reviewed at the workshop. These tools are essential for successful coding and in finding answers to questions that arise when performing coding functions in real time.

This class is designed for coders who have never had formal coding training. For study before class, we recommend reading the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting for 2018, pages 8 – 18, found at: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/icd/10cmguidelines_fy2018_final.pdf. These pages describe and define the Coding Conventions & General Coding Guidelines. Your pre-class efforts will greatly enhance your learning experience.
