Free Webinar Helps Family Physicians Prepare for ICD-10
By News Staff
To help FPs get ready, TransforMED's Delta-Exchange network is offering a free webinar on ICD-10 preparation on Feb. 27 at 1 p.m. CST. The moderator for the one-hour webinar will be Debra Seyfried, M.B.A., C.P.C., an AAFP coding and compliance specialist.
Seyfried, a certified coder since 2000, recently received additional training from the American Health Information Management Association that certifies her as an official ICD-10 trainer.
Seyfried will focus her presentation on three topic areas that are foundational to achieving a smooth transfer from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Specifically, she will discuss how to
- assess and clean up billing departments to ensure peak performance in ICD-9 before the introduction of new challenges posed by ICD-10;
- work with health IT vendors and ancillary suppliers, such as labs and radiology providers, to ensure the seamless flow of electronic data in ICD-10; and
- prepare for the educational needs of staff members relative to ICD-10, including where such learning should take place and in what form.
Physicians unable to participate in the webinar in real time can view an archived version at their convenience.
