Webinar: ICD-10-CM Coding for Social Determinants of Health

Thursday, September 28, 2023 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM   iCalendar Eastern Standard Time

Addressing Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) positively affects both the patient and the healthcare system by improving patient outcomes and reducing unnecessary expenditures such as hospital readmission, length of stay, and use of post-acute care. Addressing SDOH is also a primary approach to achieving health equity. The ICD-10-CM codes included in categories Z55-Z65 and Z75 (“Z codes”) identify non-medical factors that may influence a patient’s health status, such as the patient’s socioeconomic situation, including education and literacy, employment, housing, lack of adequate food or water, or occupational exposure to risk factors like dust, radiation, or toxic agents.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the factors impacting SDOH and how to capture information for coding and reporting
  • Improve understanding on how assessing and addressing SDOH is critical to improving the patient’s health
  • Gain knowledge about how to report correctly the key conditions that affect the patients and their social needs

Target audience: CMOs, CNOs, HIM Coders, CDI Staff, Case Managers, Documentation Improvement Staff, Risk Coders and Physician Office Staff.

Jean Ann Hartzell-Minzey, RHIA, CHA, CPC CEO & Chair of the Board, Healthcare Education Strategies, Inc. Hartzell-Minzey actively develops systems and innovative programs for healthcare leaders and trainers. Her approach to ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS reflects her clinical knowledge and her understanding of reimbursement methodologies. She implemented one of the first DRG systems in the country while educating 280 members of the medical staff, one-on-one. The same issues are relevant today in ICD-10. Hartzell-Minzey’s sessions not only provide the building blocks to transition to ICD-10 but also help to decrease Recovery Audit Contractor exposure.
