Obstetricians and nurse midwives document solely to communicate with each other through their unique alphabet soup of abbreviations. No wonder OB coding is extremely challenging. And since there is no implied delivery in the ICD-10-CM code, it is very important to indicate that a delivery was performed or you might end up in the wrong DRG. Listen to this exclusive report when Dr. Erica Remer demystifies ICD-10 obstetric coding during the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays. 

Also scheduled to be featured on the broadcast are the following segments:

  • CDI Report: Juliet B. Ugarte Hopkins, physician advisor for ProHealth Care, will make her debut appearance on Talk Ten Tuesdays with the CDI report on reducing queries.

  • Coding Report: Sandy Brewton will report on how to improve both coder quality and productivity.

  • Dateline Washington: Talk Ten Tuesdays legislative analyst Rhonda Taller will have the latest news coming out of Washington.

  • News Desk: Laurie Johnson, who anchors the Talk Ten Tuesdays news desk, will check in with the latest ICD-10 headline news.
