Acute and Chronic Renal Failure Documentation
AUDIO CONFERENCE ON CD OR ON-DEMAND
Sponsored by ACDIS
Presented on Tuesday, November 9, 2010
Talk to the experts about acute and chronic renal failure.
Documentation improvement staff sometimes have difficulty with physician vague and overlapping terminology when referring to different levels of acute renal dysfunction—all of which may lead to inappropriate code assignment and compliance risks.
During this 90-minute audio conference, experts Dr. William Haik and Dr. Garry Huff will address acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease (CKD). They will discuss documentation challenges and provide querying strategies to help ensure coding success.
They will also take participant calls during the question and answer session that follows the presentation.
At the conclusion of this audio conference, you will be able to:
- Explain the various terms associated with vague physician terminology of “acute renal dysfunction”
- Define the different stages of acute kidney injury
- Recognize the appropriate stage of CKD
- Describe complications associated with CKD
- Identify principal diagnosis in CKD admissions
- Formulate a compliant, effective query
