Focused on ICD-10 for Mental / Behavioral Health

by Leigh-Ann Renz, 6.23.15, (updated 6.23.15)

Promoting ICD-10 Compliance for Psychiatry, Counselors and Substance Abuse Providers

You may have noticed that we’re all about ICD-10 lately: it’s very important, and the mental / behavioral health industries tend to unfortunately be behind the ICD-10 curve. To help keep you up-to-date and encourage preparation and adoption, we’ve been busy with the following:

  • Updated and Revised ICD-10 articles, written from a mental / behavioral health care perspective: check out our ICD / DSM Resource Center for complimentary tools & guides.
  • ICD-10 Webinar Series: essentially consultation at a fraction of the typical price, this webinar series presented by Dr. Jason King trains providers on how to pick the correct ICD-10 codes, based on the DSM (webinar registration expired)
  • ICD-10 Action Item Series: receive a monthly action item (or items) in your inbox automatically.

July: Reality Check & Testing Resources/Details

May: Make Sure Staff Understands & Empower Providers to Begin Dual Coding
April: Schedule Testing & Update Your Practice
