Presentation Topics

Minnesota ICD-10 Collaboration Update presented by Barb Billing, Healthcare Initiatives Leader, Charter Solutions

Hear an update on the MN ICD-10 Collaborative and how Minnesota payers and providers have come together to support the Minnesota healthcare industry through the ICD-10 conversion.  Learn why the decision was made to postpone the ICD-10 compliance deadline to Oct. 1, 2014 and how organizations are responding.

Business Challenges with meeting ICD-10 Compliance presented by Carla Tobin, RHIT, CCS,

Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare and Karen Hoffman, CPC, MBA, CentraCare HealthSystem

With any large regulatory requirement, there are business challenges that we face; ICD-10 is no exception.  Whether you are a large or small care delivery service provider, our presenter will cover practical tools and tips for addressing new documentation requirements, challenges with new terminology between ICD-9’s and ICD-10’s and assisting with getting started on training plans and budgeting. 

Physician Education Strategy presented by April Howie CPC, CPMA, HealthPartners Medical Group and Clinics   

How does ICD-10 relate to me?  That is a question that our presenter will take a deeper look at from a provider’s perspective.  This topic will cover strategies for identifying your ICD-9 top list of codes to begin your transition there, along with further defining documentation changes.

Q/A with a post-presentation panel discussion

This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions fielded by a panel of subject matter experts who will share their input, ideas and “best practice” approach to ICD-10 implementation.
