Virtual Coding Roundtables 


Oh Baby!  Coding and Documentation Reminders for Newborn Facility Coding - In this session we will review the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding and documentation nuances for newborn facility coding.  We will specifically analyze coding audit error trends we identified in reviewing newborn encounters.   We will highlight the ICD-10-CM/PCS guidelines for newborn, perinatal, and congenital conditions as well as examine key AHA Coding Clinic surrounding newborn encounters.  Also, during the session we will review documentation improvement opportunities for newborn encounters.  We will also present case studies for newborn encounters and talk through the correct code assignment and documentation issues relevant to the encounter.
