2014 Edition of the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Handbook Has Published
Date:8/26/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

American Hospital Association (AHA) Central Office director of coding and classification Nelly Leon-Chisen, RHIA, has authored the 2014 edition of the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Handbook, which published this month.

Particularly because of Ms. Leon-Chisen’s close involvement with the ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets, the Handbook contains the most accurate and up-to-date ICD-10-CM/PCS information available. Ms. Leon-Chisen encourages use of the Handbook as a training tool and reference. She advises that, “With ICD-10-CM/PCS coding changes just around the corner and effective October 1, 2014, it is imperative that organizations do what they need to do now to prepare.”

The new 2014 Handbook follows the popular Faye Brown edition style. Key features include Coding Clinic ICD-10-CM/PCS advice and clarification on "gray areas", more than 60 new exercises and case studies, engaging illustrations and visual elements, and a built-in workbook of case summary exercises.

The 2014 Handbook reflects the most recent versions of the Official Coding Guidelines, including the latest updates from the Cooperating Parties.
