ICD-DSM Education Curriculum / Coding, Documentation & Revenue Cycle Trainings
BHS's "ICD-10/DSM-5 Coding, Documentation, and Clinical Diagnostic Criteria Training"© is a published and extensive training curriculum for administrators, clinicians, coders, and MD's in the health and human service industry who need to know about the requirements of the ICD-10 and the DSM-5. ICD-10 is not just about "picking the right code." There are specific HIPAA mandated rules about the coding procedures so training is necessary. BHS has developed a thorough analysis and set of training materials to help clinicians and administrators learn this challenging material. All the codes necessary for a comprehensive assessment are included in the training: physical health, complicating factors, self-harm, overdoses, and more. Billing and coding trainings are also provided: E & M, Modifiers, CPT, HCPS, Coding Manuals and more. Trainings are designed with the clinician in mind!
