ICD-10 Doc Talk

Developed by the leading ICD-10 educator in the United States in collaboration with Bruce Scott, M.D., a practicing physician, surgeon, and clinical educator, the Precyse University Doc Talk app allows the user to listen to specialty-specific audio webinars designed to provide an overview of the impact ICD-10 will have on each specialty. These short audio webinars will look to educate you on the impacts within each specialty with specific focus on the documentation requirements needed for ICD-10 specificity. Each session will provide key disease and condition examples from that specialty and illustrate what documentation will be required for each disease. This app is perfect for physicians, physician assistants, Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists/Nurses, and other clinicians who will document or support the documentation of the medical record when ICD-10 arrives. Please note that all information provided not only offers valuable steps for a clinician to prepare for ICD-10, but also documentation strategies that can assist today in ICD-9. Adopting many of the examples and strategies contained within can improve documentation, reduce queries, drive medical necessity, and improve clinical care through specific and actionable data within the record.
