HIM Weekly Wednesday - ICD-10 Coding

Hi Everyone! I have found an excellent video that describes how ICD-10 coding is different than ICD-9. As most of you know, we will be transitioning to ICD-10 on October 1 of this year.

The video is 26 minutes long and I hope you will take the time to view it. Even though you may not understand everything because you have not had the coding courses yet, you will still be able to get a feel for the changes that coders will be experiencing. HIM departments have been preparing for this change for the past couple of years and coders are getting trained and practicing with ICD-10 so they will be ready on October 1st.
