Develop the knowledge and skills to ensure accurate and reliable ICD10 Coding within your Trauma Registry

 

 

 

The ATS ICD10 Trauma Injury Coding Course powered by Trauma Analytics is a unique one of a kind trauma data coding course, which provides trauma clinicians nurses, trauma nurse registrars, and trauma registrars with the knowledge and tools to ensure accurate and reliable ICD10 coding. Using accurate and reliable ICD10 coding allows for nurses and registrars to evaluate trauma clinical data to identify opportunities for system performance improvement and monitor patient outcomes. The course teaches ICD10CM and ICD10PCS injury coding while identifying unique differences between ICD and injury severity coding. The course uses practical, hands-on coding examples and coding case study exercises to teach injury coding theory and application for trauma data. The class emphasizes ICD10 specific coding guidelines and bridges the knowledge gap between ICD and injury severity coding application and techniques. At the end of this course trauma registry professionals will maintain a stronger understanding of ICD10 trauma clinical data coding for incorporation with facility performance improvement activities, trending reports, and trauma research.

 

The ICD10 Course is taught in a two day format that is broken down into instructional units with each unit containing a combination of the educational elements which include: unit overview and objectives, content presentations, readings, PowerPoint lectures, videos, course activities, course coding assignments, and review questions. The primary vehicle for learning is through our online web based learning system which attendees gain access prior to, during, and after the course concludes. While few printed handouts are provided, registration includes 12 months of AHIMA’s Virtual Lab “VLab” platform which includes access to 3 of the industries leading ICD10 Encoders: 3M, Find-A-Code, and Nuance ClintegrityTM .

 
 
Upon completion of the ICD10 Trauma Injury Coding Course, the learner will be able to:
  1. Identify and explain the structure and organization of ICD10CM and ICD10PCS
  2. Describe the most appropriate process for encoding abstracted injury data from medical charts to reach the most accurate ICD10 code
  3. Effectively use ICD10 codes and coding tools to achieve accurate and reliable code data
  4. Understand the importance of accurate and reliable ICD10 coding impact on the nurses and trauma registrar’s ability to evaluate trauma clinical data to identify opportunities for system performance improvement and monitor patient outcomes.
  5. Understand the difference between ICD10 and injury severity coding rules when data abstracting and when to apply coding rules based off anatomical body regions and published coding guidelines
  6. Identify clinical objectives of procedures to ensure proper coding
  7. Understand the differences between ICD10 and other coding scales used for injury coding
  8. Effectively select correct ICD10 codes for monitoring trauma clinical performance improvement activities, trending reports, and clinical research
