Diagnosis coding accuracy is extremely important for PDPM success. Coding problems are the same no matter the setting. In this three-part webinar series, well-known coding expert Lisa Selman-Holman will cover the most common ICD-10 coding mistakes:

  • Fractures
  • Symptom coding and the ‘with’ convention
  • Diabetes and hypertension coding

Lisa will teach the guidelines with real-life examples, so you can be on the right track for PDPM. By the end of this webinar series, you will be able to apply coding conventions and guidelines to common scenarios, which will ultimately help you prepare for PDPM coding success.

Mary Madison with Briggs Healthcare will accompany Lisa at the end of each event to assist with answering your top coding questions.

  1. This is frustrating. I purchase all 3 CEUs for these webinars and did the quizzes but only could see one completed certification, Part 3. The other parts 1 & part 2 said an error occurred on the dashboard. I was hoping to get 3 AHIMA CEUs for this class.
