At NeoGenomics we are working hard to prepare for the new ICD – 10 coding structure that is set to begin on October 1, 2015. We are offering a free webinar on Wednesday, September 9th with subject matter experts Dennis Padgett and Brenda Cox on the topic, and how it will impact our pathology and oncology clients. They will present on ICD-10 conversion and then be available for a Q&A session.
We will also discuss NeoGenomics efforts to help our clients prepare for the conversion, to include bridge reports of our most commonly received diagnosis codes, and ICD-9 / ICD-10 reference mapping documents. We hope this short presentation will be helpful to clients as we all prepare for the upcoming coding conversion.
