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 ICD10@NationwideChildrens.org or visit the intranet at Anchor > Tools and Resources > ICD-10.
