Weathering the Storm: Reporting Neoplasms in ICD-10 CM

When preparing for bad weather we watch the forecast and prepare. Then we wait and watch again. This process is similar to a cancer patient’s journey. Prepare as much as you can and then watch and wait.  With the growing number of cancer cases in the US, those of us working in healthcare need to make sure we are documenting and reporting cancer accurately. Coding and documenting for neoplasms can be trying. It can feel like we are just waiting on those black clouds to roll in. Accurately coding for neoplasms requires us to know so many details (from location to laterality to morphology to what complications are present) and we also need to follow what seems like even more guidelines. But as with storms, advance preparation with knowledge of correct reporting and documentation, we can withstand the storm.

In this session we will discuss:
-Best Practices for Neoplasm Documentation;
-ICD-10 CM codes and guidelines for reporting neoplasms;
-Case Studies as examples that help to translate the information.

 This course authored by Paula Digby and Heather Bryans.

  • Utilize learned information to make logical decisions regarding coding and querying for neoplasms;
  • Apply rules for selecting the diagnosis and achieve medical necessity for reported services;
