ICD-10-PCS Inpatient Procedure Coding: An Overview

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

The process of coding involves transforming the medical descriptions of diagnoses and procedures found in the documentation of the health record into codes. These codes “tell the story” of the patient’s encounter: The diagnosis codes describe the reason for the admission, and the procedure codes describe the services the patient received. The International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS) is the code set hospitals use to report inpatient procedures.

This course discusses the coding process for inpatient procedures using ICD-10-PCS, starting with an overview of the system. This course also reviews the format and structure of the codes, including a description of each of the seven characters that constitute an ICD-10-PCS code and what they represent. The contents of the index and code tables will also be reviewed.

Before beginning this course, you should have access to the most recent version of ICD-10-PCS Code Tables and Index as well as the Official Coding Guidelines. Refer to the Resource section to find and download the necessary documents.

The codes and information in this course receive a comprehensive review annually and are updated as needed.
