WYHIMA January 2014 Newsletter

Happy New Year! Your WYHIMA Board is kicking off the New Year with a great start to our upcoming Spring Meeting! With the countdown on for the October 1, 2014 go live of ICD 10 CM and ICD 10 PCS, your Board wants to provide you with educational opportunities you can’t beat!

Please save the dates! May 7–9, 2014 in Casper. We are finalizing hotel details, but we want to give you a flavor of the sessions that will be provided. In addition we will offer a Coding Roundtable, great food, and our fun and ever popular Silent Auction! So please save the date, watch for further information, and look forward to working with your colleagues! Plus there is more! The more information you have about ICD-10, the better prepared you are! 

What’s at the Bottom of Your Toolbox?

An energizing, fun, insightful, information-packed session that refreshes your memory on Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, procedures, disease processes and medical terminology needed for ICD-10 CM coding. Let’s dig to the bottom of your toolbox of knowledge, dust off the tools we haven’t used lately and remember what we have forgotten we had!
What’s the Difference?

Are you still wondering – how different is it really? In this session we will hold a detailed discussion about the differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 CM for diagnosis coding regardless of healthcare setting. We will review, discuss and dissect guidelines, time parameters, identify new terminology, and capture the essence of what changes are forthcoming in our attention to detail.
How Fast Are You?

Already been practicing ICD-10 CM? Do you know if you are as efficient with the ICD-10 book as you are with your trusty, worn-in ICD-9 book? Have you memorized your ICD-9 codes and have no idea what they are in ICD-10? This session will test your abilities, knowledge and competitive spirit with your fellow HIM professionals. Crack those knuckles, charge up those fingers, and GO – it will be the best speed coding exercise you can imagine!
You Be the Judge!

This session will be entertaining – we promise. We will use real documentation from providers and facilities across the State of Wyoming for case work. We will review documentation, accept or reject the evidence, discuss queries, and pass our HIM Professional Judgment as to whether the documentation passes the “ICD-10 Muster.” Join us – we will put you on the bench of HIM ICD-10 Authority!!!!
Tables, Tables and More Tables…

This session will be a refresher (or an introduction) to the ICD-10 PCS tables and root operations for inpatient services. Even though PCS is used only for inpatients – there is no reason to miss out on gaining new knowledge and exercising your CNS for the future.
