A specialty dealing with disorders of the heart and blood vessels, cardiology includes diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, and the like. Medical coding jobs need much more accuracy than other medical coding jobs; so if you are a cardiology coder, you need to keep yourself updated with the latest in the field.
Cardiology Conferences 2009: Year 2009 brings some of the most significant coding changes cardiology has witnessed in over 15 years. As such, attending cardiology coding conferences will not only keep you posted on the latest but will also help you polish up your cardiology coding skills.
For instance, the recently-held “2009 Coding and Reimbursement Conference For Your Specialty” at Orlando, FL touched upon 10 different specialty tracks among which Cardiology was one of them. The other specialty tracks were Emergency Medicine, Evaluation & Management, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Ob-Gyn, Ophthalmology, Optometry, Otolaryngology, Pediatrics, and Urology. This conference was organized by Coding Conferences, LLC and The Coding Institute.
All about Cardiology Medical Coding: With sessions like “Bring-in the Cash: Cardiology E/M Conundrums Solved”, “Dig Into Medical Necessity Essentials for Maximum Pay-Up”, “Tackle Cardiology’s Biggest ICD-9 Trouble Makers for Accurate Reimbursement every time, “Cardiology Modifiers: Denial-Prevention and Profit-Boosting Secrets Right at Your Fingertips”, among others, the conference provided the attendees with the most up-to-date cardiology coding and billing information. Needless to say hundreds of coders and billers walked away richer in terms of their knowledge on cardiology coding.
And if you missed this all-important conference, you need not worry as you can always fall back on the CDs and MP3s.
When you tune in to such conferences, you’ll not only realize your true potential as a medical coder but will also get expert solutions to all your cardiology coding and reimbursement challenges!
