ICD-10 are Coming

(From the April 2014 Issue of MedStat)

The change to ICD-10 this fall will require more specific documentation and diagnoses. Starting this month, online educational courses will be available. In July, Nationwide Children’s providers will begin to see ICD-10 codes and terms, and providers will also encounter new Epic tools that can guide them to a more specific diagnosis.

Providers will have a variety of education opportunities to prepare for this change including:

  • Online ICD-10 documentation courses—April through May, 1.5 CMEs
  • Epic eLearnings and open labs—June
  • Physician led face-to-face, specialty specific education—July through September

More details on the above education opportunities will be communicated to providers by their section chief or department head. Questions? Email or visit the intranet at Anchor > Tools and Resources > ICD-10.
