Traumatic Brain Injury in the Military After Transition to ICD-10

Jan. 11, 2018; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

Overview

Clinicians within the Military Health System treat their patients and code their own administrative data using a combination of diagnostic and procedure codes. The data generated from these administrative codes inform key strategy and reporting criteria throughout the Department of Defense and beyond.

The goals of this webinar are to support accurate administrative coding and introduce the defense health applications of data extracted from medical records. The presenters will demonstrate how to access current statistics on traumatic brain injury (TBI) published quarterly by the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) and how providers can use this information to frame discussions with patients and their families.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify how provider coding informs ongoing efforts to estimate the incidence and prevalence of TBI in the military
  • Demonstrate “clean coding” practices that improve the accuracy of provider generated data
  • Integrate DVBIC TBI surveillance data into clinical practice and communications
