This transition will impact so many areas in your practice, you will have reimbursement delays, are you prepared??
Join us for this practical 90-minute audio conference where Coding expert Nancy Maguire will get you and your team started by introducing you to a common sense plan to get you started and take you through the planning phase to implementation and beyond.

This presentation will be a critical discussion of the preparation steps, rather than just a summary. To help you grasp the concept of the new coding system and its fallout, Nancy will outline your challenges and discuss the impact . There is no doubt that this transition will take hard work and persistence but by taking small steps over the 2 years, your goal of compliance and understanding will be met.
This is a conference not only for the coding and billing and management staff, this conference also will get your physicians and other clinicians “up-to-speed” on the nuances for setting ICD-10-CM planning in motion.
