AHIMA CEU Webinars

Provided by Dolbey

We’ve partnered with the AHIMA Foundation!

Dolbey Webinars are $10.00 each. Dolbey will donate a percentage of all webinar proceeds to the AHIMA Foundation to be used to fund two of the Foundation’s initiatives. 

  • The AHIMA Foundation advances health to transform lives. During the COVID-19 crisis, the Foundation is providing direct relief to AHIMA members through the Health Information Relief Operation (HIRO) Fund.
    • The HIRO Fund currently services AHIMA members who have experienced financial difficulty due to job loss caused by the pandemic. In a recent survey, eight percent of responding members tell us their jobs have been eliminated due to the pandemic’s economic wake.
    • HIRO Fund recipients receive up to $500 to help pay household, education or healthcare bills.
    • Since 2011, the HIRO Fund has provided direct relief to AHIMA members living or working in counties designated as major disaster areas by the Federal Emergency Management Administration.
  • Scholarship programs for students pursuing degrees in Health Information and Health Informatics fields.

Dolbey Webinar Series: How Technology Can Improve your Coding and CDI – Earn 6 AHIMA CEU’s

We are excited to re-launch our AHIMA CEU approved webinar series with all new topics and new presenters.  The webinars will now cost just $10 each and upon completion you will receive your AHIMA CEU certificate.

Some changes have been made to the format of the webinars.  The webinars will be posted for streaming on-demand.  Listen and watch when your schedule allows.  A portion of the proceeds of each webinar will be paid back to the HIM community through AHIMA scholarships.

We are currently working on finalizing the presentations for these 6 one-hour webinars. Check back for updates or sign-up here to be notified when more details are posted.

PCS Coding of Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair

This presentation will detail the anatomy of the aorta, explain the pathophysiology of aortic aneurysms, and explore the coding of the many variations of treating these aneurysms and associated conditions via endovascular approach, with several examples of documentation and correct coding.

After attending this presentation coders will be able to:

  • Apply the learned anatomy of the aorta to better understanding of operative reports for endovascular aortic aneurysm repair.
  • Determine the number of endograft branches used in order to assign the correct codes.
  • Select the correct root operation for standard endovascular aneurysm repair as well as variations and accompanying procedures.
  • Justify their code choices through better insight into the documentation elements.

Best Practices When Implementing Computer-Assisted Coding

This webinar will cover best practices in implementing computer-assisted coding. During this webinar, we will discuss considerations, practical information and guidance for organizations looking to implement CAC.

The session will offer insights on:

  • What you need to know before implementing
  • Understanding the common challenges
  • What you can do to ready your organization
  • How to set realistic expectations

What attendees will learn:

  • What resources you need to implement computer-assisted coding correctly, the first time.
  • Have a practical understanding of the documentation requirements for computer-assisted coding.
  • The impact of computer-assisted coding on an organization when implemented correctly.

Leveraging Computer-Assisted Coding for CDI, Coding and Quality

Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC) is playing an increasingly vital role in coding and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and will continue to dramatically influence CDI, quality scores and reimbursement.

This session will explore some of the ways CAC is being infused into the coding and CDI workflow to allow organizations to improve documentation at the point of capture. We will also discuss the features available to coders, CDIs and quality staff that help reduce the time it takes to bill the chart.

We will examine the productivity gains that can be realized through automated code suggestion and auto abstraction by reducing manual data entry while identifying charges concurrently and retrospectively if they meet quality indicators.

What attendees will learn:  This session will teach you how embedding CAC into the daily workflow of coding and CDI allows an organization to improve documentation at the point of care. Learn how not only coding and CDI but, other departments such as quality can use CAC to help reduce the time it takes to bill a chart by suggesting codes and using automatic abstraction to reduce manual data entry.

AI and CAPD: An Overview of the Technology and Proposed Benefits

Artificial intelligence (AI) is playing an increasingly vital role in healthcare and will continue to dramatically influence clinical documentation improvement, quality scores and reimbursement.

This session will explore some of the ways AI is being infused into our daily workflow, allowing organizations to improve documentation at the point of capture. Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) with AI offers many features to help physicians reduce the time it takes to create documentation that provides the specificity needed downstream for appropriate reimbursement. Productivity gains come from real-time identification of documentation lacking specificity, auto-abstraction of abnormal lab values, possible medication interaction identification and overall reduction in queries from CDI and coders. In addition, the ability to connect CAPD and traditional back-end CDI for additional efficiencies will allow for greater future development. Finally, you will hear outcomes of success from early adopters and learn that as this technology continues to mature, the possibilities are endless.

What attendees will learn:  This session will teach you how embedding CAPD with AI into the daily workflow will allow your organization to improve documentation at the point of care, increase physician productivity and reduce overall physician query fatigue.

CPT® Challenges for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions

From understanding coronary artery anatomy and applying modifiers to untangling bundling and unbundling edits, coding for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) takes meticulous attention to the details. When should codes for interventions of acute myocardial infarction and total coronary occlusions be used? When should C codes be employed for stent insertions? This presentation will cover angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, and other percutaneous coronary interventions and give tips on proper CPT code assignment.

Objectives:

  • Rank percutaneous coronary interventions in order of CPT’s progressive hierarchy
  • Identify when to use base codes vs. add-on codes for PCI
  • Apply CPT codes and coronary artery modifiers to PCI procedures

One More Webinar is Coming Soon!

Enhanced Clinical Documentation Improvement with CAC

Computer-assisted coding helps hospitals improve the accuracy and quality of clinical documentation. CAC is traditionally known for decreasing the amount of time it takes to code a chart. But not everyone realizes it also allows your CDI staff to concurrently review the patient charts along with a suggested code, document findings and collaborate with coding and quality.

Join this one-hour webinar to learn about all the benefits of CAC and how this emerging technology can help with your clinical documentation improvement program.

The session will offer insights on:

  • What you need to know before implementing
  • Understanding the common challenges
  • What you can do to ready your organization
  • How to set realistic expectations

What attendees will learn:

  • Automatic workflow prioritization
  • Collaboration tools with coding and quality
  • Automatic quality indicators
  • How CAC can suggest a DRG prior to CDI involvement
  • How CAC can provide a suggested set of codes
