I could use some assistance in preparing a discussion statement for the following three questions. I have somewhat attempted to answer questions 2 and 3, however, they need more work:
DISCUSS THE FOLLOWING:
1. How is the code choice affected by reading the ICD Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting?
2. Which of the guidelines covered in the reading material do you see as the most challenging to understand?
(The challenge comes in transforming cloudy and complex medical symptoms into clear, discernible codes).
3.What specifically have you done to get a better understanding of that guideline?
(Enhance learning with flashcards, online quizzes and other supplemental educational materials. Practice and deep understanding are essential to the job. Also, study and reviewing daily to help you translate information from your short term memory to the long term).
