This book uses the Official Coding Guidelines effective October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017. The book translates the confusing ICD-10-CM Coding Guidelines into simple English. The guidelines are then formatted into charts so students or working coders can find the guideline they need easily and quickly.
The Official Coding Guidelines for ICD-10-CM are dense, confusing and repetitive. In addition, guidelines related to a single body system may be located in multiple sections of the guidelines. It takes a lot of time to find the correct guideline and interpret it. This book combines all the guidelines for one body system or condition in one place. The guidelines are rewritten into plain English and presented in easy-to-use tables. The tables provide information on definitions, sequencing requirements and need for additional codes. This enables the coder to find the needed guideline quickly and easily. This book is designed for use by students and as quick reference for coders working in the field.

Emergency Room Coding will prepare you for the real world of coding in the emergency department setting. The text provides the beginning coder with a solid foundation of how to code ER charts. We focus on the diagnoses and procedures seen in the majority of community-based hospitals. The scenarios in this book are based on real life experiences and will provide the coder with situations s/he will most likely encounter in the emergency room coding environment. The study guide contains 32 emergency room records. The case studies are representative of what is commonly treated in most emergency rooms. Each case study contains an ER report and an answer worksheet. The ER record serves as a good teaching tool for new coders because ER records do not require as much clinical background to code as inpatient records. However, some of the injury cases may present a challenge for new coders. Also, unlike most coding textbooks, this study guide contains a complete ER report with a full explanation, not just thumbnail sketches. Therefore, Emergency Room Coding is more realistic than the one-to-two line diagnostic statements encountered in most coding textbooks. Finally, the Answer Key for the case studies contains a rationale for all code assignments, as well as directions for locating the correct diagnostic and procedure codes. A multiple choice final review quiz is included at the end of this study guide as an opportunity for coders to test their coding skill set. Emergency Room Coding is updated annually to reflect the annual coding changes. Who is this book for? Coders needing to develop ER coding skills Students/Beginning coders trying to get their first job Anyone needing to understand ER code assignment Coding supervisors HIM Directors Auditors/Compliance Officers Case Managers What's Inside? 32 Case Studies Dictated ER Reports Answer Key Rationale Instructions on how to locate codes in ICD-9 Coding Book Final Exam Linda Kobayashi, BA, RHIT, CCS, has been a coder and coding manager for almost 20 years.
