Show Notes

During the sultry summer of 2018, a Talk Ten Tuesday listener asked if whether seasoned coding professionals were sufficiently trained and competent to interpret clinical terms and concepts from medical records. So the editorial team here at ICD10monitor published a story on the topic on July 17, 2018. Debra Beisel Benton, who at the time was working at Maricopa Integrated Health System as the HIM System Coding Educator, wrote the story. The topic solicited many comments, creating a contentious debate. 

Now, one year later Talk Ten Tuesday checks in with Anny Pang Yuen who wrote a follow-up article for ICD10monitor in August of last year. Returning to the broadcast will be Debra Beisel Benton. 

What changes have taken place since last year? How are AHIMA and AAPC responding to this debate? During the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesday, you’ll hear the very latest on this contentious issue when both Yuen and Beisel Benton report our lead story. 

The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:
