Foot and Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic, LLC (FASMA) podiatrist Dr. David Freedman (Columbia Divisions) was featured in a recent article on HIStalk Practice, 5 Questions with David Freedman, DPM Foot and Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic. Dr. Freedman offered advice and tips on the upcoming switch to ICD-10:
"We have been preparing for ICD-10-CM dating back to January 2014. We hold monthly webinars, teaching ICD-10-CM using the website I created,www.ICDTENhelp.com. This site was developed to help in understanding the new conversion, and to get ready for our planned go-live date of October 1, 2015. It converts ICD-9-CM codes to specific ICD-10-CM coding. We have created a library of webinars that any of the billing staff, doctors, medical assistants, or staff that touches ICD-9 coding now can view on their own, besides participating in the live events."
