Long Term Acute Care hospitals serve patients requiring complex medical management. Long Term Acute Care Coding provides a clear and straightforward approach to ICD-10 coding of diagnoses and procedures for conditions commonly seen in the LTAC hospital setting.
Authored by coding professionals at Barry Libman Inc, a leading provider of coding and auditing services for the LTAC hospital setting, this course is up-to-date on the challenges facing the LTAC coder. This online and self-paced course is designed to build upon a coder’s knowledge of ICD-10 and is organized into three concise lessons:
- LTAC disease process issues such as hypertension, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, respiratory failure, sepsis, and encephalopathy.
- Complex coding issues commonly seen in the LTAC setting such as aftercare, 7th character assignment, pressure ulcers, and stroke with sequelae.
- Procedures performed within the LTAC as well as those performed at an outside facility when the patient is absent from the LTAC fewer than three midnights.
