Coding Track:

 

Where do you start if you are not a clinician and this is all new to you? First, make sure you have a Coding Manual. Order this FIRST because this takes about 2 weeks to be delivered. We recommend the one we linked to (it is home health specific and includes multitudes of home health and hospice specific information), but any current ICD-10-CM coding manual will work. Current means current year if you are beginning the course prior to September. Beginning in August of each year, the new coding manual will become available. First thing to learn about coding in ICD-10-CM…the year begins October 1. As an example, if you are starting the course in April of 2018, you will need a 2018 manual. If you are starting the course in September of 2018, you will need a 2019 manual.

 

1.    Learn the terminology if you are not a clinician.  If you are a clinician, then skip right into step number 2.
CodeProU: Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology for Clinicians & Coders This course will help you learn the terminology and normal physiology of the body systems, pathophysiology of common conditions and documentation, and assessment tips necessary for a complete assessment including complete and accurate coding.

 

2.    Now it is time to get started with learning to code! The Essentials course begins with the whole concept of assigning a diagnosis code to a diagnosis, how those codes interact with the OASIS assessment, how to use the coding manual and how to recognize and apply coding conventions and general coding guidelines. This course lays the foundation for a successful career.

3.    Once you have had plenty of practice with the foundation concepts of diagnosis coding, you are ready to move on to Level 2. In Level 2, the coder will dive deeper into each chapter (1 – 21 or A-Z) of the coding manual, exploring pertinent chapter specific guidelines and applying them to home care and hospice scenarios. Also included are courses on correction of OASIS data (including coding) and collaboration.

4.    Almost there… time to review and take the practice exams to ensure you are ready for the exam. There are post-tests to complete for Level 2, but Lisa has also prepared a comprehensive exam review course called “Conquering the Complexities of ICD-10-CM.” This course offers more practice with more difficult scenarios and other issues found on the exam, like legal/ethical concerns, collaboration with others on the team and collecting data.

5.    Need more practice? CodePro U has workbooks available. Tutoring/mentoring, before and after the exam, is also available.

 

6.    Practice and get comfortable before you schedule to take your exam through AHCC (Board of Medical Specialty Coding & Compliance) at a local testing center or check the Selman-Holman site to see upcoming classes to take along with sitting for the exam at the end.

 

Hospice Coding Track

 

1.      Learn the terminology if you are not a clinician.  If you are a clinician, then skip right into step number 2.

2.    Now it is time to get started with learning to code! The Essentials course begins with the whole concept of assigning a diagnosis code to a diagnosis, how those codes are used to establish eligibility, how to use the coding manual and how to recognize and apply coding conventions and general coding guidelines. This course lays the foundation for a successful career.

4.      Step 4 for a hospice coder is to learn Medicare expectations for assigning diagnoses to support the terminal diagnosis, and identifying related and unrelated diagnoses. The coder also needs to learn the roles of the attending and the medical director.

Competency and Compliance 

Agencies, hospices and outsource companies use CodePro to train and to evaluate competency. Any of the post-tests can be customized to provide a comprehensive pre-hire test. Modules can be used to mediate coders/reviewers who have not reached, or have fallen below, the standards set for accuracy in the company.

ICD-10 CLINICAL TRACK: Anatomy, Physiology & Pathophysiology and Documentation

A. For Coders and Clinicians
Anatomy, Physiology & Pathophysiology training consists of 11 Modules with over 6 hours of education and includes over 20 quizzes throughout the training modules for coders and clinicians.  Modules include: Terminology for ICD-10 and the following systems: Neuro, Mental/Behavioral, Endocrine, Blood & Immune, Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary, Integumentary, and Musculoskeletal systems and the in-depth review of the cells, tissues, organs and function of each body system and examination of the diseases and disease processes specific to them. 

Each module contains the following information:
• Outlines the anatomical components, focusing on the structure and function of cells, tissues, and organs of the body system. 
• Review of normal physiology of the system.
• Examination of the pathophysiology of common conditions that affect the body system, with causes, symptoms and assessment tips for clinicians. 
• Outlines the key documentation points that will be necessary for coding in ICD-
10.

B. For Clinicians Only
These learning modules are divided into four separate components, each containing an explanation of the CMS requirements and extensive examples of appropriate documentation.  These modules can also be used as part of orientation for new clinicians.   This information will be updated as required by changes in CMS regulation and policy.
• CMS Requirements:  homebound status, skilled care and medical necessity
• Reimbursement:  case example of HHRG calculation and how incomplete or inaccurate documentation can cost in downcoding, sample documentation to support case-mix diagnoses and OASIS items that are components of reimbursement.
• Care coordination:  coordination with physicians, between disciplines and clinicians, and with patients/families; conference points for SOC, ROC, recertification an

d discharge.
• Key ICD-10 Documentation:  outline of the key points clinicians will need to assess and document in each body system in order for coders to be able to perform diagnosis coding in ICD-10.
Separate learning modules for hospice specific clinicians include hospice specific information on CMS requirements, reimbursement, care coordination and the role of the IDT in ICD-10 and key ICD-10 documentation.
