[MMA News Now, March 13, 2014] Minnesota physicians can learn the fundamentals of the new ICD-10 coding system from two online, on-demand educational programs offered by the MMA in partnership with the Wisconsin Medical Society (WMS).
The programs, which were developed by the WMS, provide a general overview for all physicians along with specific information about how ICD-10 will affect 20 different specialties. CME credit is available.
The two programs include: “ICD-10: What Physicians Need to Know” and “Specialty ICD-10 for Physicians.”
The training is intended to:
• Describe both the challenges and benefits associated with ICD-10
• Identify gaps in medical record documentation in preparation for ICD-10 and tools/methods to improve documentation accuracy.
This activity is designed for physicians and other health care professionals with the relevant specialty designation, as appropriate to each activity.
The Wisconsin Medical Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Wisconsin Medical Society designates this enduring material for a maximum of 10.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
