The chiropractic profession is facing the biggest “adjustment” to our diagnostic process in over 30 years. ICD-10 will be transformative and impactful to your practice because it’s a monumental shift in the language used to describe the conditions you treat on a daily basis. It’s imperative that steps are taken now to understand the requirements and level of detail in documentation that will be mandatory as of October 1, 2015. This session will outlie the changes, the necessary mechanics, and naming conventions we’ll face in chiropractic documentation. Learn how your documentation will drive your medical necessity like never before.
