Secondary diagnoses are the
most commonly overlooked elements in a case review for both CDI and coding
professionals. These are expensive oversights for any organization. So what are
the best methods to not only uncover these secondary diagnoses but also educate
your staff to facilitate an improved documentation and coding program? This
webinar answers this question in several ways. First, the speaker presents a
basic outline of secondary/other diagnoses guidelines in addition to abnormal
findings and possible/probable guidelines. The speaker sheds light on the areas
where secondary diagnoses “hide” within the chart, such as the ER report, OP
notes, combination coding, history of conditions, nonattending physician
diagnoses, and BMI reporting. The presentation continues with pathology report
guidelines and issues facilities face with missed secondary diagnoses (CC/MCCs)
in path reports and the opportunity for physician clarification of path
findings. Finally, attendees will have a chance to review documentation from
nonattending providers as well as a discussion on conflicting vs. nonconflicting
documentation. Viewers will have the option to participate in examples of
conflicting/nonconflicting documentation via “viewer choice” (if available).
Actual case examples are shown throughout the presentation to incorporate the
guidelines/information with real case excerpts. This helps participants identify
with current cases seen in the hospital setting.
