ICD-10 education and resources for Oregon providers

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the ICD-10 implementation date is set for October 1, 2015. Effective on this date, ICD-9 will no longer be accepted. Providers are encouraged to take their ICD-10 training sooner rather than later to help them prepare for ICD-10 documentation specificity requirements.

ICD-10 education opportunities:
  • ICD-10 Specialty Modules
  • ICD-10 Onsite Education and Regional Webinars
  • ICD-10 Specialty Tip Cards
  • ICD-10 queries from Coders and Clinical Documentation Specialists
  • ICD-10 Help Stations at 6 acute care hospitals every Wednesday in Sept. 

Please start adding ICD-10 specificity to your documentation now to be ready for ICD-10 on Oct.1, 2015

Online education
  • Online ICD-10 education is being provided on The Commons
    • We are moving all users to use their Epic Login as their Commons Login
      • Login information: EPIC ID as your username and "TheCommons1" as your password.
      • For users who were updated but have not logged in their password will be "TheCommons1". If they have logged in since the update, it will be what they set it to.
      • For users who we were unable to update (NPI missing, which was required by the Epic team for Login Extract), they will still have their old login, email. We are asking those users to use the request an account link to give us the correct data.
