Show Notes

If there’s an industry buzzword that is heard most often in today’s healthcare discourse, it might be “artificial intelligence” (AI).

And just as the advent of the computer presaged concerns about job loss, the same could be said today about AI, especially when it comes to coding. But before AI came into vogue, computer-assisted coding (CAC) and the use of natural language processing (NLP) appeared to be a potential job killer. 

Reporting on AI and CAC during this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays is Lamon Willis, Director of Coding for Velocity Healthcare Collaborative in central Georgia. 

The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • The Coding Report: Laurie Johnson continues her reporting on the proposed 2020 Inpatient Prospective Payment System, proposed procedure codes and also has an update on the dramatic surge in the outbreak of measles in the U.S. Johnson is a senior healthcare consultant at Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC.

  • Tuesday Focus: Death by shootings, accidents and illnesses leave survivors in the throes of grief. And while grief is real, there’s confusion in the coding world (DSM 5 and ICD-10) about when grieving is a normal human process and when it turns into something pathological. Reporting this complex issue is nationally renowned psychiatrist H. Steven Moffic.  

  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert, and ICD10monitor national correspondent anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk.

  • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, FACEP, CCDS, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc. and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, reports on a timely subject that have caught her attention she’s like to share with listeners.
