    Coding and Documentation Compliance for the ICD and DSM provides professionals, professors, and students with a logical and practical way of understanding a difficult topic in healthcare for the clinician: coding. Established professionals will find the tools they need to comply with the ICD series, HIPAA, and integrated care models. Professors and students will appreciate having a systemized, standardized approach to teaching and learning the more complex aspects of ICD compliance. The interplay between the ICD and DSM manuals is also explicated in clear terms.

It takes a very difficult topic, often foreign to clinicians, and breaks it down in an understandable and meaningful way for all levels of clinicians. Understanding ICD-10 and its connection to quality care will be necessary for providers moving forward in a value-based payment world. New and seasoned providers will be benefit by reading this book."

It is a training that can be completed at your own pace for those new to ICD series; it is a practical reference guide that is certain to be used regularly by practitioners as they assign diagnoses, and it offers a blueprint for compliance to ensure that billing requirements are supported by practice. Clear, concise, and most importantly, a complete resource."
