Upcoming dates:

  • VIRTUAL + LIVE Nashville, TN Medical Coding Seminar: August 22-26, 2022
  • VIRTUAL + LIVE Las Vegas, NV Medical Coding Seminar: December 5-9, 2022

Who should attend?

These live seminars are for hospital coders, HIM directors, physician office staff and coders, technologists, compliance officers, business office personnel, nurse auditors, physicians, and all others involved in the coding and billing process of these complex procedures.

ZHealth reviews procedures that occur in the interventional radiology (IR) suite, the cardiac catheterization laboratory, electrophysiology (EP) laboratory, operating room, endovascular suite, and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs).

Which ZHealth Publishing medical coding seminar program is best for you?

There are four coding sessions – Choose any or all of them!

  • For medical professionals involved with non-vascular IR procedures, vascular diagnostic and interventional procedures, and cardiology procedures, we recommend attending all of our sessions.
  • For medical professionals newly involved with peripheral vascular coding, we recommend starting with “Coding Basics for Vascular Coding”, which provides an overview of general concepts and rules of vascular coding.
  • For medical professionals only involved in peripheral vascular diagnostic and interventional vascular coding, we recommend continuing with “Peripheral Vascular Diagnostic and Interventional Coding”. This applies to IR, peripherals in the cath lab, and endovascular surgery centers.
  • For medical professionals who only review cardiology, electrophysiology, and pacemaker/defibrillator procedures, we recommend “Coding for Cardiovascular Procedures”.
  • For medical professionals who perform a significant number of peripheral procedures in the catheterization lab, we recommend attending “Peripheral Vascular Diagnostic and Interventional Coding” as well.
  • For medical professionals who review all aspects of interventional radiology (including vascular and non-vascular procedures) but not involved in cardiology coding, we recommend attending “Peripheral Vascular Diagnostic and Interventional Coding” along with “Non-Vascular Interventional Radiology” and “Coding Basics for Vascular Coding” as needed.

Earn up to 28 AAPC CEUs, 31.5 ASRT CEUs, and/or 27.5 AHIMA CEUs.

 

There are four coding sessions for this hybrid live + virtual seminar – you may choose any or all of them. Because ZHealth Publishing is hosting this virtually on a platform/app, it is changing the session times slightly to allow for more frequent breaks throughout the week. Sessions are below:

Non-Vascular Interventional Radiology Coding
Seminar Day: Monday (see schedule for times)
Price: $325
(CEUs: AAPC – 4.0, AHIMA – 4.0, ASRT – 4.0)
This half-day session reviews anatomy and focuses on coding guidelines for non-vascular interventions. This includes (but is not limited to) the following: biliary, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, spinal, breast interventions, biopsies, drainages, and ablations.

Coding Basics for Vascular Coding
Seminar Days: Monday and Tuesday (see schedule for times)
Price: $325
(CEUs: AAPC – 4.5, AHIMA – 4.0, ASRT – 5.0)
This half-day session focuses on basic catheter selection coding. It is intended for newcomers but is also a good review for intermediate coders. This session is delivered at a relatively slow pace with opportunities for questions. Catheter placement coding today is integral to IR, endovascular, and cardiovascular procedures. Important concepts are covered, including: the concept of vascular families, the importance of variant anatomy, and selective vs. non-selective catheter placements. There is also a discussion of S&I codes that must be performed selectively and S&I codes that include catheter placements. Many examples are provided to facilitate learning.

Peripheral Vascular Diagnostic and Interventional Coding
Seminar Days: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (see schedule for times)
Price: $1,300
(CEUs: AAPC – 14.0, AHIMA – 14.0, ASRT – 15.0)
This two-day session covers “best practices” for coding and billing vascular procedures for physicians and hospitals, along with common mistakes that reduce coding and billing accuracy rates. This is followed by a review of terminology, anatomy, and physiology pertinent to the vascular system. We focus on catheter placements and diagnostic angiography of the arterial, venous, portal, and pulmonary systems. Interventional procedures in the vascular system are reviewed, including: central venous access, IVC filter placement, foreign body retrieval, venous sampling, angioplasty, atherectomy, stent placement, stent graft placement, infusion therapy, embolization, thrombectomy, dialysis intervention, TIPS, and neurointerventional procedures.

Coding for Cardiovascular Procedures
Seminar Days: Thursday and Friday (see schedule for times)
Price: $650
(CEUs: AAPC – 5.5, AHIMA – 5.5, ASRT – 7.5)
This one-day session is primarily a detailed discussion of diagnostic and therapeutic cardiology procedures, including the specific rules regarding the coding of: angiography, coronary arterial and cardiac chamber interventions, diagnostic and therapeutic electrophysiology procedures, and pacemaker and ICD procedures. We also briefly review peripheral vascular procedures that are performed in the cardiac catheterization laboratory during or separate from a cardiac catheterization**. Lastly, we cover pediatric cardiac catheterization and interventions.

**Those involved with peripheral interventions in the cath lab should consider also attending “Peripheral Vascular Diagnostic and Interventional Coding” and/or “Coding Basics for Vascular Coding”, as peripheral vascular procedures performed in the cath lab are only briefly discussed in the cardiology session.

David Dunn oversees coding projects and manages ZHealth operations. He coauthors the Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Coding Reference and Cardothoracic Surgery Coding Reference from Dr. Z’s Medical Coding Series, and is a contributor to the Interventional Radiology Coding Reference and the Diagnostic & Interventional Cardiovascular Coding Reference.

Dr. Dunn also participates as an instructor for ZHealth Publishing in live seminars and the webinar series. Dr. Dunn served as President of the National Advisory Board for the AAPC from 2013-2015 and is certified by each of the three major coding certification organizations. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

A graduate of Texas A&M University, Dr. Dunn completed his MD at the University of Texas in San Antonio, his surgical residency at Scott & White in Temple, Texas, and his vascular surgery fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Jeffery Majchrzak, BA, CIRCC, RCC, Vice President of Radiology Services for ZHealth Publishing
Jeffery Majchrzak has spent more than 30 years in the healthcare consulting, publishing, education, and training (including both live seminars and webcast) space, most recently at Panacea HealthCare Solutions. Jeff served as the primary author and was instrumental in the creation of, as well as annual updating of, numerous publications for MedLearn for services such as interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, PET, CT, MR, ultrasound, general radiology plus cardiac catheterization, as well as other non-invasive vascular services.

From a consulting perspective, Jeff has helped more than 400 clients on both the physician and hospital side to understand the need of complete, compliant dictation and documentation to support appropriate reimbursement for services rendered. Jeff prides himself on being able to draw upon his clinical experience to take complex, payer requirements, marry them to the actual clinical procedures, and distill them to an easier, less intimidating set of instructions and guidelines for facilities and practices.

Prior to embarking on his consulting and publications journey, Jeff worked in both public and private hospitals as a radiologic technologist and department director for nuclear medicine services.
