There is nothing humerus about Orthopedic coding and it can be a bit frustrating for most coding specialists. This 75-minute complimentary webinar will reinforce your confidence in coding ICD-10-CM/PCS orthopedic procedures on the shoulder, spine, hip, knee, and ankle joints in the inpatient setting. During this session we'll review several key areas including anatomy, common conditions/procedures and official guidance.

Attendees will leave the webinar being able to:

  • Recognize anatomy related to shoulder, spinal, hip, knee, and ankle joints
  • Identify common conditions and procedures of the shoulder, spine, hip, knee and ankle
  • Understand official guidance relevant to orthopedics
  • Become confident with coding orthopedic procedures through coding examples
