Talk Ten Tuesday Podcasts

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.

Of all the stories recently published on ICD10monitor, the one that has been generating plenty of buzz is last Tuesday's feature article on septic shock by Allen Frady, an education specialist for Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists (ACDIS). Frady will join the Talk Ten Tuesdays broadcast this coming Tuesday to report on the problem with current definitions of what constitutes septic shock. He is also expected to explain why insurance auditors are denying claims for septic shock, perhaps underscoring why the condition is so poorly understood. Joining Frady for our lead story to provide a physician's perspective will be Cesar Limjoco, MD, vice president of clinical services for DCBA, Inc.

The subject of ethics made headline news last week when House Republicans voted in secret to scrap the Office of Congressional Ethics – only to rescind their move to gut the independent body later. Meanwhile, a different move was unfolding recently at the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), which last month unveiled its newest version of Standards of Ethical Coding. Gloryanne Bryant, a co-chair of the AHIMA task force responsible for revisions to the document, will explain the wide range of behaviors and situations that apply to all settings, including post-acute care and physician offices.
