Show Notes

Has the art of telling the patient’s story through coding been lost? 

So ponders Kristi Pollard, a senior coding consultant for the Haugen Group, who reports this intriguing story in this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays. Pollard is expected to explain that, first and foremost, coders are storytellers who convey each patient’s medical story through codes. 

The podcast also features these other segments:

  • The Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, a senior healthcare consultant at Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, discusses World Hepatitis day on the Talk Ten Tuesday coding report.

  • The Dunn Report: National health information management (HIM) expert and past American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) President Rose Dunn returns to the broadcast with the sixth installment in her series on how HIM can play a role in other areas of the revenue cycle.

  • Tuesday Focus: Rhonda Buckholtz, chief compliance officer for Century Vision Global, reports on a mystery code – actually, a diagnosis code – that could trigger an audit that could lead to a complete refund.

  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert, and ICD10monitor national correspondent anchors 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 emergency room critical care time documentation.
