Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, will be hosting a webinar on October 29 at 1 p.m. Eastern time titled, “Proactively Protecting Physician Revenue Post-ICD-10.” This webinar, presented by Career Step Physician Advisor Stephen C. Spain, MD, FAAFP, will focus on actionable ways physicians can safeguard their revenue now that the ICD-10 code set is in place.
“As we complete our first month of ICD-10, we will be looking at the impact of the system within our practices,” said Dr. Spain, Career Step Physician Advisor. “Some physicians have delayed examining their workflow and completing ICD-10 education prior to October 1. It is important to examine a number of key areas to ensure minimal impact on workflow and revenue. It is not too late to take action, including investing in education.”
This webinar is intended for physicians, physician office managers, and HIM directors. The webinar will be held Thursday, October 29 at 1 p.m. Eastern time.
During the presentation, Dr. Spain will discuss motivating physicians to invest time and energy in ICD-10 training, and participants will learn essential, actionable information physicians can immediately implement to reduce negative side effects of the ICD-10 transition. Dr. Spain will specifically address identifying important revenue indicators, gauging the transition’s effect on a practice and creating a proactive revenue-monitoring plan. Without this education, physicians risk impacting the quality of care as well as reducing practice revenue.
“Dr. Spain’s knowledge of ICD-10 coding and experience as a physician is a tremendous resource and has been critical to the development of our Physician Training program,” said Laurie McBrierty, Career Step Vice President of Corporate Training. “When a physician experiences difficulties or delays in the coding of patient procedures, it can cause negative side effects throughout the practice, potentially even impacting patient care. We aspire to improve patient experiences and the collective healthcare industry through our products and services, and our goal is to provide actionable information physicians can use right now through this webinar with Dr. Spain.”
