Although hysterectomy is a common procedure in gynecology practice, coding for it is a challenge due to so many code choices. Along with the surgical approach and extent (i.e., total or partial) of the hysterectomy; the size of the uterus and accounting for related performed procedures on accessory organs is key to code selection. Reference the article below:

Tonight students will be introduced to surgery coding my favorite specialty The Cardiovascular System. How does blood flow through the heart? The right atrium receives oxygen-poor blood from the body and pumps it to the right ventricle through the tricuspid valve. The right ventricle pumps the oxygen-poor blood to the lungs through the pulmonary valve. The left atrium receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it to the left ventricle through the mitral valve. The left ventricle pumps the oxygen-rich blood through the aortic valve out to the rest of the body. #iloveteaching #certitudehealth #AAPC #licensedinstructor

This week students applied ICD-10-CM coding guidelines and coding conventions to determine the appropriate code for a confirmed diagnosis, sign or symptom. This example references Chapter 10: Diseases of the Respiratory System guidelines to assign codes for influenza with gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the lining of the intestines caused by a virus, bacteria, or parasites also affecting the stomach. Here we see a main term of influenza with an associated condition. The correct diagnosis code to report both conditions is J11.2

Last week students learned the business of healthcare it pertains to laws and regulations that build principles of medical coding. Coding plays a key role in the revenue cycle process of patient care. Illustrated below is the life cycle of a patient visit/encounter. Each step is vital and could negatively impact reimbursement from insurance if not performed accurately.
