Why not be on top of your game and get a head start on increasing your understanding of body systems, anatomy and diseases for the mandatory implementation of ICD-10-CM? Yes, the changes in ICD-10-CM to diagnostic and procedural coding are going to require an advanced knowledge of anatomy and physiology due to the increased specificity of the coding systems. So instead of the coding system stylings that we've seen under ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM is expanding the codes to describe the patient's condition adequately.
The 2010 Advanced Anatomy and Physiology for ICD-10-CM/PCS can help you learn about the body systems that ICD-10-CM uses and how it can be used to identify the appropriate diagnosis and condition for successful coding.
The book is divided into two sections. The first section discusses each body system with the diseases, disease processes, conditions and symptoms being covered. Each chapter is organized in a format of course objectives and overview of the chapter topic where the reader can read a thorough description of ICD-10-CM and how it relates to ICD-9-CM. There are side-by-side comparisons made between the two systems and questions to make you think. You will also find chapter specific terminology and quizzes to help test your knowledge.
The second section discusses the anatomy and physiology for ICD-10-PCS in its sections, the body systems and body parts, root operations and approaches, devices and qualifiers and ICD-10-PCS applications. You will also find 2 appendices at the back of the book containing the official ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM guidelines.
You will find this book to be extremely extensive in its approach to this exciting change in our industry and find yourself referring to it time and time again during your transition to ICD-10-PCS.
