Mar 17, 2020 Episode 407
Chuck Buck | Erica Remer, MD | Tim Powell, CPA | Laurie Johnson | Lorraine M. Fernandes | H. Steven Moffic, MD

Will there be a code for EVALI? Or the use of e-cigarettes? Or one for the deadly coronavirus that the World Health Organization has now declared as a pandemic? 

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, the ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee (C&M) meeting will be online only and convene Tuesday, March 17. The virtual meeting brings together representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), various medical societies, medical device vendors, and the general public. 

The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • Tuesday Focus: Dr. Moffic, one of America’s foremost psychiatrists, continues his reporting on the rising world temperature and its impact on mental health.

  • Special Report: The World Health Organization has declared that the global coronavirus outbreak is now a pandemic. Given the international scope of the crisis and the vast amount of health data that will be exchanged, Lorraine Fernandes, president of the International Federation of Health Information Management Associations (IFHIMA), returns to report on patient privacy in this global pandemic.

  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert, and ICD10monitor national correspondent anchors the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk.

  • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, returns to the broadcast to report on another thought-provoking topic that has captured her attention.
