Course Detail: DR9999 - Information Session on DRG and Clinical Validation Program

This free session will give you information pertaining to our DRG and Clinical Validation.The DRG (MS DRG and APR DRG) validation is to verify that all diagnoses and procedure codes were coded appropriately in accordance with official coding guidelines and were consistent with the documentation in the medical record resulting in accurate DRG assignment and reimbursement. This review validates all data elements that affect the DRG assignment. Coding validation is the process of verifying that codes were billed and sequenced in accordance with coding guidelines. Clinical validation is an additional process, and is performed in addition to the coding validation review. Clinical validation verifies that the diagnoses coded were actually present based on the clinical documentation in the medical record, and the results of related diagnostic testing were consistent with the diagnoses. In cases in which there is a conflict between the diagnosis coded, and the associated clinical indicators for that condition, the diagnosis will be removed from the grouping which may result in assignment of a DRG that more appropriately reflects the medical documentation. *Potential job placements are available upon successful completion of the program.* Requirements:Must be a CCS, RN, or MDInformation Session (online) Monday June 13, 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Course schedule 5 Wednesdays & 5 Fridays, July 6 - August 5 (online) 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Please complete the Program Application prior to registering for the program and email it to
