Wounds are one of our biggest obstacles in home health. The primary reason for this being, the wound was not properly identified initially. Wounds that are not identified and coded correctly at the initial evaluation are at major risk of not healing and/or deteriorating. Additionally, valuable non-routine supply costs can be left on the table when the correct ICD-9 codes are not used. Join Jennifer as she walks you through the maze of coding wounds in home health.
