The NST is based on the premise that the heart rate of a fetus that is not acidotic or neurologically depressed will temporarily accelerate with fetal movement. Heart rate reactivity is thought to be a good indicator of normal fetal autonomic function. Loss of reactivity is associated most commonly with the fetal sleep cycle but may result from any cause of central nervous system depression, including fetal acidosis and some medications. exacerbated by the husband's angry outbursts and bouts of rage. Although the family.

This article discusses approaches to achieving accurate coding/documentation, supported by clinical validation. Coding professionals must "step it up" to survive in this new environment. Enhancing clinical knowledge through education and resources is essential. The availability of Internet resources such as drug references, anatomy and physiology charts, professional medical society websites, and online pathophysiology resources can increase productivity by making knowledge available at the coder's fingertips. Clinical documentation improvement programs have gone a long way to reduce physician queries by collaborating with physicians up front for accurate and complete documentation. Finally, productivity can be increased by eliminating the rework of denials through clean claims on the front end. The ability to speak to or query a provider or write an effective appeal letter with the clinical knowledge of a disease process further supports the importance of and the need for a coding professional in the clinical validation process. Allow case management to share medical necessity denials. Health information management (HIM) is a discipline that has rapidly evolved toward roles of increasing complexity and demand in recent years and the coding profession has been one area at the center of this growth. Even though the HIM profession is currently rethinking their coding and clinical processes due to widespread industry changes and initiatives, it has always been essential for coding professionals to have ongoing professional development. Enhancing clinical knowledge through education and resources is essential. Taking Coding to the Next Level through Clinical Validation. Consider the following scenario for example: a 23-year-old female presents to the emergency room with the sudden onset of severe pelvic pain, vaginal bleeding, and lightheadedness. She has a history of multiple abdominal surgeries. Positive smoker, 1 pack per day. Serum?-hCG levels were elevated. The patient was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy and transferred to the OR. Steps for success in clinical validation audits include:. Increased regulatory reporting requirements such as present on admission (POA) indicators and quality indicators impacting reimbursement for hospital-acquired conditions and other value-based purchasing initiatives. Constant improvements in medical practice, changing the way conditions are diagnosed and medical interventions are delivered, necessitating that coders stay abreast of these clinical developments. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. "Statement of Work for the Recovery Audit Program-DRG Validation vs. Clinical Validation." 2013. A good audit management process manages denials as they come in but also works proactively to prevent them. Coders are now more than ever faced with the question of how to handle validating clinical denials from a coding perspective. As mentioned above, queries are a way for coders to confirm the validity of coding a diagnosis or procedure. Clinical validation is no different. In the day to day, coders must question the clinician and/or utilize internal escalation process when resolution of uncertainty is needed. Clinical validation review requires utilization of this process more than ever before. The following are some best practices to consider when developing coding education:.

Advancing the Coding Profession: Communication Skills, Clinical Skills, and Credentials. In the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS, coding documentation will be even more important as will the need for coders to translate that clinical documentation to the new code set. Just the sheer volume of added codes will require more analysis and research by coders. This is the time for coders to take the opportunity to expand their skills on the clinical side of coding and strengthen their position in the industry. Most coders are being given the chance to sharpen their clinical knowledge by their employers and they should all take that opportunity to grow their skills. It is a great time to increase their confidence in the very important position that they are in and capitalize on the opportunities that ICD-10-CM/PCS will bring. Wilson, Donna D.
