The Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist's Guide to ICD-10
Take charge of ICD-10 documentation requirements
The implementation of ICD-10 brings with it new documentation requirements that will have a significant impact on the work of your CDI team. The higher degree of specificity of information needed to code accurately will have a direct correlation to reimbursement and compliance.
CDI specialists need a firm understanding of the new code set, and the rules that govern it, to obtain the appropriate level of documentation from physicians.
The Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist’s Guide to ICD-10 is the only book that addresses ICD-10 from the CDI point of view. Written by CDI experts, it explains the new documentation requirements and clinical indicators of commonly reported diagnoses and the codes associated with those conditions. You'll find the specific documentation requirements to appropriately code conditions such as heart failure, sepsis, and COPD.
