7 ICD-9-CM VS ICD-10-CM ICD-9-CMICD-10-CM 17 Chapters21 Chapters E and V code Supplemental Classification All codes are alphanumeric Sense organ conditions in Nervous System Separate Chapters Outdated languageCurrent terminology Injuries by typeInjuries group by site, then type Complications of Medical care in 1 Chapter Complications have been categorized to procedure-specific body system chapters Maximum of 5 charactersMaximum of 7 characters Partial code titlesFull code titles Code extensors for specificity and laterality Dummy place holder (x)

8 ICD-10-CM STRUCTURAL CHANGES ICD-9-CMICD-10-CM 3-5 characters3- 7 characters First character is numeric or alpha (E or V) First character is alpha Characters 2-5 are numericAll letters except U Always at least 3 charactersCharacters 2-7 are alpha or numeric Use of decimal after 3 characters 13,000 codes72,000 codes (approximately)

9 S ICD-10-CM FORMAT Category Chronic heart disease Atherosclerosis of coronary artery bypass graft(s), complication, manifestation Atherosclerosis of coronary bypass graft(s), unspecified, with angina pectoris with documented spasm I

10 GENERAL CODING GUIDELINES FOR 2011 For reporting purposes only codes are permissible not categories, subcategories. The 7 th character is applicable when required. Place holder “x” is used as a placeholder on certain codes to allow for future expansion of the code. Example: poisoning, adverse effect, and underdosing codes (T36-T50) may need a placeholder to be considered a valid code. 7 th Character – The 7 th character must always be the 7 th character in the data field. If a code that requires a 7 th character is not 6 characters, then a place holder must be used to fill in the empty characters. “NEC”- still represents not elsewhere classifiable in the Alphabetical Index. NOS – still represents not other wise specified and is the equivalent of unspecified in the Alphabetic Index. “NEC” still represents not elsewhere classifiable in the Tabular list. NOS still represents not otherwise specified and is the equivalent of unspecified in the Tabular List

11 GENERAL CODING GUIDELINES Locating a code- Locate a code in the Alphabetical Index and verify the code in the Tabular list. Apply instructional notes that appear in both the Alphabetical Index and the Tabular List. (same) Level of detail in Coding- Codes must be reported to the highest level of detail. Codes from A00 – T88.9, Z00-Z99 - must be used to identify diagnosis, symptoms conditions, problems, complaints, or other reason(s) for a encounter/visit. (same) Signs and symptoms – signs and symptoms must be reported when a related definitive diagnosis has not be established by the provider. (same) Conditions that are integral part of a disease process – signs and symptoms that are routinely associated with a disease process should not be coded, unless otherwise instructed by the classification. (same) Laterality – for bilateral sites the sites the final character of the code in ICD-10-CM indicates laterality. If no bilateral code is provided, and the condition is bilateral then assign separate codes for both the left and the right side (new). Combination code - is a single code used to classify: - Two diagnoses, or a diagnosis with an associated secondary process (manifestation - A diagnosis with an associated complication (new)

12 DIAGNOSTIC CODING AND REPORTING GUIDELINES FOR OUTPATIENT SERVICES Selection of first listed diagnosis – Coding conventions of ICD-10-CM as well as general disease specific guidelines take precedence over the outpatient guidelines. Codes from A00 – T88.9, Z00-Z99 - must be used to identify diagnosis, symptoms conditions, problems, complaints, or other reason(s) for a encounter/visit. Accurate reporting of ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes – Documentation should describe the patient’s condition using terminology which includes specific diagnoses as well as symptoms, problems, or reason for the encounter. Factors influencing health status – Z00- Z99 are provided to deal with occasions when circumstances other than a disease or injury are recorded as diagnosis or problems. Level of detail in Coding – ICD-10-CM codes are 3,4,5,6 or 7 characters. Codes with three characters are head of a category codes. Subdivided by the use of fourth, fifth, sixth, or seventh characters to provide greater specificity. A code is not valid if it has not been coded to the full number of characters required for that code, including the 7 th character extension, if applicable.

13 ICD-9-CM VS ICD-10-CM ICD-9-CMICD-10-CM Nondependent alcohol abuse Nondependent alcohol abuse, unspecified drunkenness Nondependent alcohol abuse, continuous drunkenness Nondependent alcohol abuse, episodic drunkenness Nondependent alcohol abuse, in remission F Alcohol abuse with intoxication F Alcohol abuse with intoxication, uncomplicated F Alcohol abuse with intoxication delirium F Alcohol abuse with intoxication, unspecified

14 Y 90.0 Blood alcohol level less than 20mg/100ml Y90.1 Blood alcohol level of mg/100ml Y90.2 Blood alcohol level of mg/100 ml Y90.3 Blood alcohol level of mg/100ml Y90.4 Blood alcohol level of mg/100 ml Y 90.5 Blood alcohol level of mg/100ml Y90.6 Blood alcohol level of mg/100ml Y90.7 Blood alcohol of mg/100ml Y90.8 Blood alcohol level of 240 mg/100ml Y90.9 Presence of alcohol in blood, level not specified Y90.- Evidence of alcohol involvement determined by blood alcohol. Code first any associated alcohol related disorders. ICD-10-CM

15 DOCUMENTATION CHALLENGE Reason for visit : Follow-up- Nephrology Progress Note: __________is a 87 y.o. male who presents for follow-up of chronic kidney disease stage 3. It appears that he developed sudden onset of shortness of breath after seeing me and was hospitalized for a few days with CHF exacerbation and pneumonia. Since then he has been doing better. ROS (Review of Systems) Review of Systems Constitutional: Positive for malaise/fatigue. Negative for fever, chills and weight loss. Mostly on a wheel chair Eyes: Negative for blurred vision. Cardiovascular: Positive for leg swelling. Negative for chest pain and palpitations. Continues to have dyspnea on exertion Gastrointestinal: Negative for nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Genitourinary: Negative for dysuria and hematuria. Skin: Negative for rash. Neurological: Negative for weakness and headaches. Psychiatric/Behavioral: The patient does not have insomnia. All other systems reviewed and are negative Physical Exam Nursing note and vitals reviewed. Constitutional: He is oriented to person, place, and time and well-developed, well-nourished, and in no distress. No distress. On a wheel chair and in no distress. Normal speech, on oxygen HENT: Mouth/Throat: Oropharynx is clear and moist. Eyes: Conjunctivae and EOM are normal. Neck:

16 DOCUMENTATION CHALLENGE Not able to assess JVD as he was sitting up in his wheel chair during the exam Cardiovascular: Regular rhythm, normal heart sounds and intact distal pulses. Exam reveals no gallop and no friction rub. No murmur heard. Pulmonary/Chest: Effort normal and breath sounds normal. No respiratory distress. He has no wheezes. Few crackles left lung base Abdominal: Soft. Bowel sounds are normal. He exhibits no mass. No tenderness. He has no rebound and no guarding. Musculoskeletal: Normal range of motion. He exhibits edema. He exhibits no tenderness. 1+ bilateral lower extremity edema Lymphadenopathy: He has no cervical adenopathy. Neurological: He is alert and oriented to person, place, and time. Gait normal. Skin: No rash noted. No erythema Assessment & Plan Chronic Kidney Disease stage 3 with episodes of AKI secondary to ischemic nephropathy and possibly hypertension. According to him his renal function was checked a month ago at his PCP's office and he was told it was better. I will check renal function again. No proteinuria or even microalbuminuria. Secondary hyperparathyroidism of renal origin. Patient is being treated with vitamin D. I will check PTH, phosphorus and calcium today. Anemia of chronic kidney disease. Hemoglobin has been was below the goal of g/dL for CKD. I will check a CBC today. He may benefit from treatment with ESA. Blood pressure. Patients blood pressure ( 131/60 ) is within the desired goal of <130/80 for CKD. Volume status. The patient appears to be hypervolemic but better than his last visit. His lungs sounded better and edema is less. He is now on Bumetanide. I did not change the dose. Discussed health maintenance, including regular aerobic exercise, low fat/low salt diet, and periodic exams. Return to Clinic in 6 months and as needed. Patient has issues with transportation and stated that it costs him a lot of money to come and see me. I left the decision regarding future appointments.

17 DOCUMENTATION CHALLENGE Addendum: Hyperkalemia has resolved. No microalbuminuria, normal vitamin D level. PTH remains unchanged and not too high for degree of renal function. He remains anemic, but no indication for treatment with ESA. I suggest checking his iron stores. Visit Diagnoses and Associated Orders: Chronic kidney disease, stage III (moderate) [585.3] Secondary hyperparathyroidism (of renal origin) [588.81] Hypertensive kidney disease with chronic kidney disease stage III [403.90BK] Congestive heart failure, unspecified [428.0]

18 DOCUMENTATION CHALLENGE Chronic Kidney Disease, stage III Chronic kidney disease, stage III (N18.3) Secondary hyperparathyroidism Secondary hyperparathyroidism ( N25.81) Anemia of chronic diseaseHypertensive kidney disease with chronic kidney disease stage III ( I12.9) Congestive heart failure, (150.9) Documentation must validate the codes assigned Assessment & Plan Visit Diagnoses

19 DOCUMENTATION CHALLENGE Issues: The CHF was mentioned in the HPI, but was not documented and addressed in the Assessment and Plan. The CHF was not specified Anemia of chronic kidney disease is not listed in the visit diagnoses section in the EMR. Are the codes sequenced appropriately? Actions: Coding guidelines state that chronic conditions that are addressed during the encounter should be coded. Coding Professional (CP) should contact provider about clinical significance of CHF. Anemia of chronic kidney disease needs to be added to the list of visit diagnoses. Codes should be sequenced in accordance with coding guidelines.

20 DOCUMENTATION CHALLENGE Documentation issues are resolved: CP contacts the provider and CHF is added to the assessment and plan. The provider documents that the patient has chronic systolic heart failure. Anemia of chronic kidney disease is added to the visit diagnoses list Visit diagnoses for this encounter have been revised: 1.I12.9 – Hypertensive chronic kidney disease, with stage 1-4 chronic kidney disease, or unspec CKD 2.N18.3 – Chronic kidney disease, stage III (moderate) 3.I Chronic systolic congestive heart failure 4.N Hyperparathyroidism 5.D63.1 – Anemia in chronic kidney disease

21 FAILURE TO IMPLEMENT Failure to successfully implement ICD-10-CM :  Potential to create distorted or misinterpreted information about patient care  Impacts decisions to improve healthcare delivery  Creates coding and billing backlog  Increases in claims rejections/denials  Causes cash flow delays  Places payer contracts and/or market share arrangements at risk due to poor quality rating or higher costs

22 OPPORTUNITIES IT coupled with the adoption of ICD-10-CM can effect the quality, effectiveness, and delivery of health care services The classification requires front-end documentation improvement of medical information Significant shift in delivery and finance Development of EHR components

23 HOW TO PREPARE Assess ICD-10-CM readiness Evaluate documentation requirements Improve documentation
