The International Classification of Diseases

Have you ever heard of the Classification of Diseases? Well neither had I until back in the early 1990’s. I was taking a course in medical assisting, where I got my first introduction into healthcare. Initially, I wasn’t really sure of what it as but after my instructor explained it I had a better understanding. Have you ever been to the doctor and once your appointment was over you received a paper with a lot of different codes on it? Then were you asked to give it to the front desk on your departure? Well this is where the ICD comes into play. These codes are used to tell the insurance company what procedures or test were performed on you during this visit.
The International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision (ICD-10) is a major change in how healthcare information will ultimately be used in documenting and collecting information both, worldwide and in the United States. Many countries have used the ICD-10 for many years now. The ICD-10 plays an essential part in everything related to the practice of medicine, from quality measures, research and claims that are processed. From the beginning there were concerns that are associated with managing and implementing the ICD-10 code set, preparing and realizing that getting through this transition would be the first of many. For me knowing that the classification of diseases will make doing paperwork easier, I can truly appreciate the ICD-10. With the constant changes that occur in health, we need to constantly improve the way we provide care to patients.
The international Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) received its name because it was the ninth revision. The World Health Organization or WHO as it is known implemented ICD-9 more than 35 years ago. It is now considered to be very obsolete and very outdated. A revision was needed due to the fact…...

...IT 10 Independent Research Due 23 February 2009 Angela Hall GE184T M3 Monday AM 12 JAN 2009 1) Information Technology- encompasses many different things. It is the study of information, how it is designed, stored, managed and so forth. Personnel who work in this field may work on anything from hardware to software applications. Information technology is becoming more and more important in today’s society due to the demand to have information at the touch of a button. From doctors to students to news reporters and sports broadcasters everyone needs to be able to send or receive information whether it is by telephone or computer it would not be possible without all of the advancements in the information technology world. 2) Personal Computers (Windows/Macintosh) - is a computer designed for individual use. The two dominant operating systems that are being used are Macintosh which is produced by Apple and Windows based which dominates all others. 3) Needs assessment- A Commander from a support unit ask you, "Is it possible for ten personnel sitting at ten different workstations to have the ability to print to one printer?" The answer is yes. Provided that all users are connected to the internet server; if so all you would have to do is network the printer. Next you need to decide whether or not you want to perform the task on site or from a remote location. For this example I will work from a remote location. I would......

Journal 10

...Elizabeth Anderson Journal# 10 Professor Jordan Section 3 Covey: Covey’s fifth habit is: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood. He talks about the importance of communication and what he calls “empathetic listening” saying that most people listen with the intent to reply. When we listen we listen on one of four levels (ignoring, pretending, selective listening, or attentive listening) and very few people practice this highest form of listening which is empathetic listening. Empathic listening is effective when you have the best interest of the other in mind, if you genuinely seek the welfare of the others. This can be applied to real life in regards to effective parenting techniques. In an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond called “Father Knows Least” Raymond and his wife sign up for a Parenting class where they learn about active listening. In this clip he practices these techniques with his daughter Allie in order to try to get through to her about her bad behavior. Here, he tries to see her perspective, he relates to her, and makes eye contact and appropriate body gestures. I can apply this to my own life by trying to remember that I will actually be more effective if I put forth the extra effort to listen and engage and empathize with who I am speaking to, whether I want to or not. People will look up to me and respect me more if they feel like I genuinely care about them. Another thing that stuck out...

Introduction to Icd-10 Cm/Pcs

...Introduction to ICD-10-CM/PCS The World Health Organization (WHO) is the entity that owns and publishes the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) system (The World Health Organization (WHO), 2013). The United States made modifications to this classification system and in 1979 implemented the use of ICD-9-CM. Since that time healthcare worldwide has evolved and the need to collect more detailed information regarding the diseases and conditions that effect world’s population has become a high priority. Due to this evolution, the ICD-9-CM system has become outdated and can no longer accommodate our needs. Effective October 1, 2014 the United States will implement ICD-10-CM/PCS for use across the nation. Initially we will cover ICD-10-CM and then address ICD-10-PCS. ICD-10-CM is the classification system to be utilized to record diagnoses identified and treated in both the acute care setting as well as the ambulatory setting. There are various differences between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM and we will highlight several of those differences today. One difference between the two coding classification systems is the number of chapters. ICD-10-CM consists of twenty-one chapters as compared to the seventeen chapters in ICD-9-CM. There are approximately 68,000 diagnostic codes in ICD-10-CM as opposed to the 14,000 in ICD-9-CM (DeVault, Barta, & Endicott, 2012). The length and structure of the codes in ICD-10-CM vary greatly from ICD-9-CM. ......

...Week 10 Discussion 1 From the scenario, suggest one (1) method in which Herb could use a cost-benefit analysis to argue for or against an expansion. Create three (3) optimal decision rules for Katrina’s Candies (e.g.., whether to hire more staff or hire temporary workers to meet production schedules). The cost-benefit analysis that Herb could use to argue for or against an expansion would be the Net Present value method. Net Present Value (NPV) is the present value of net cash inflows generated by a project including salvage value, if any, less the initial investment on the project. It is one of the most reliable measures used in capital budgeting because it accounts for time value of money by using discounted cash inflows. The Net Present Value relies on the concept of opportunity cost to place a value on cash inflows arising from capital investment. Opportunity cost is the calculation of what is scarified or foregone as a result of a particular decision. It is also referred to as the “real” cost of taking some action. It relies on the concept of opportunity cost to place a value on cash inflows arising from capital investment. Present value is the cash equivalent now of a sum receivable at a later date. If we didn’t spend that money and banked it instead, the opportunity cost includes both the initial sum and the interest earned. The Net Present Value method is a technique where cash inflows expected in future years are discounted back to their present value.......

...gain from leverage: Gain from leverage =[pic] [pic]D Note that if all the tax rates were zero, the gain from leverage would reduce to zero, and we would be back at the original MM position. Miller personally thought that this was the most likely situation. Note also that if Ts = Td, i.e., the tax rates on stock and debt income are equal, then the gain from leverage is equal to TcD, which is the MM with corporate taxes position. Most subsequent researchers concluded that Miller had a good point, but the personal tax advantage of stock only partially, not completely, offset the advantage of corporate debt, because Td > Ts. For example, suppose that Tc = 35%, Td = 28%, and Ts = 10%, then the term in brackets will be 1 - (1-.35)(1-.10)/(1-.28) = 0.1875 versus .35 under the MM with-taxes model. The gain from leverage with other tax rates is shown in the model output. The Miller Model leads us to the conclusion that the “Pure MM” line in the value graphs should have a less steep slope that TD, and that, in turn, leads to the conclusion that the optimal capital structure in the trade-off model should include somewhat less debt. 15-3 Under the MM and Miller assumptions, firms do not grow and the debt tax shield is discounted at the cost of debt. Under these assumptions the value of the unlevered firm is VL = VU + TD and the levered cost of equity is rsL = rsU + (rsU – rd)(1-T)(D/S). This expression for the levered cost of......

...Megan VanSickle Climate Change Collapse Summaries Chapter 10-Malthus in Africa: Rwanda’s Genocide Summary In Chapter 10 Jared Diamond is educating the readers in the instance of Rwanda’s collapse with the conditions of lack of farming land, hunger, war, poverty, lack of natural resources and more. These were caused by population pressure. Overpopulation is the primary cause which brings many problems along with it. Diamond begins the chapter by discussing and talking about his family’s stay in East Africa. He and his family saw overpopulated streets of poor people which sadly most of them were children. The children were on the side of the road begging. Diamond also discusses how population problems such as this with East Africa are sometimes pointed out as Malthusian theory. This is when population grows rapidly compared to food production increases. Diamond also discusses the Rwanda’s people that were controlled and influenced by Hutus, mostly farmers and Tutsis. Hutus and Tutsis did not like each other so Hutus army started killing Tutsis with weapons. Diamond later causes many examples such as overpopulation in Kanama. This caused population consuming below the average daily required calories. This educated readers about the different regions that are coming to be thee victims of population pressure. At the end of chapter 10, Diamond thinks that overpopulation had great impact on the Rwandan genocide. Diamond uses three counterarguments in order to prove his point...

Is 3120 Unit 10 Assignment 10

...Unit 10 Assignment 10: FCAPS is a network management framework created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) (Rouse, 2007). FCAPS categorizes the working objectives of network management into five levels. The five levels are: fault-management (F), the configuration level (C), the accounting level (A), the performance level (P) and the security level (S) (Rouse, 2007). The Marketing Company is a mid-size business that needs network management software. I recommend the Marketing Company should utilize network management toolset of the OpUtils software. It monitors network performance, calculates the bandwidth utilization, and scans the traffic for errors through SNMP. The tool also provides asset details such as the OS, installed software, and hardware and informs you about the general availability and performance of the network elements ("Network management tools," 2014). The goal of fault management is to recognize, isolate, correct and log faults that occur in the network. Furthermore, it uses trend analysis to predict errors so that the network is always available. This can be established by monitoring different things for abnormal behavior. When a fault or event occurs, a network component will often send a notification to the network operator using either a proprietary or open protocol such as SNMP (such as HP OpenView or Sun Solstice–formerly Net Manager), to collect information about network devices or at least write a message to its console......

...Assignment 10 Chapter 10 “Kant’s Arguments on Lying” Kant’s argument for lying was very interesting, it makes you think how many people will actually lie In order to accomplish things in life or even just like one of the cases that we have to discuss, telling you a lie to make you feel better. I can see the point Kant is making and I do understand that lying should be forbidden in daily bases, like the first case- If someone tells you a lie to make you feel better is that right? Maybe no, but only that person knows the truth. I think is personal decision if you decide to lie in order to make someone feel better. To me people do this to express kindness or just to make you feel comfortable around you or just to get to know you to break the ice and start conversation. But what about if these people are comfortable with themselves to lie to get people’s attention, what if they start lying to get better job or even worst, to me ones you start using a small lies here and there on daily bases you might going to start using them all the time and in some point everything you say will be lies. I do agree with Kant’s argument, people should not lie to get someone else’s attention, I am coming from different country where was very different and people would not compliment you if they don’t really think whatever they say. Here people compliments each other all the time and I am not very sure if that’s all truth, or they just say things? We wont know, its their own......

...Case 10-5 Danle Corporation Danle Corporation (Danle), a public company, conducts business activities primarily related to the design, development, manufacture, and assembly of passenger cars, recreational and sport-utility vehicles, minivans, and trucks. Danle used asbestos in the manufacturing of brake shoes and gaskets because of its heat resistance. During the past three years, two claims were filed against Danle by automotive mechanics and surviving family members seeking recovery because of their alleged exposure to asbestos. The following information summarizes Danle’s exposure to the two asbestos claims over the past three years. The amount of damages sought in the complaints is considered material to Danle’s financial statements for each period presented. Fiscal Year 2008 In November 2008, Danle was served a complaint in the U.S. District Court alleging that 50 mechanics suffered severe illnesses that led to death or disability as a result of exposure to asbestos from parts manufactured by Danle. The case was brought against Danle as a class-action lawsuit seeking damages totaling approximately $100 million. Danle did not believe the asbestos used in the manufacturing of the brake shoes and gaskets led to the mechanics’ illnesses and immediately retained external legal counsel to vigorously defend the claim made against Danle in this complaint. Since this legal matter was in its early stages of discovery and development, Danle determined that (1)......

Some trends, we argue, remain firmly on track, but uncertainties are cropping up around others. We also see signs of new forces emerging, which we will be exploring in more detail in the months ahead. The overall picture is of an altered business landscape. It does seem there will be no going back to the precrisis world. Are these the right trends to watch? Share your thoughts with the authors at business executives are looking again to the future. As they reengage in strategic thinking, many are struck by a sense that the world has changed: The turmoil was not merely another turn of the business cycle but a restructuring of the economic order. Is that impression accurate? To answer this question, it is necessary to examine the underlying forces that shape the business environment and to look for discontinuities.

...1. The 10-step process for developing training courses The process for developing performance-based training includes the following 10 steps. The first four steps constitute the task analysis that is necessary to design and develop relevant, useful training materials. Steps 5–10 constitute the design and development process. 1. Define the target population for training. 2. List the tasks to be performed by the target population on the job. 3. List the skills and knowledge needed to do the tasks. 4. Select the skills and knowledge to be taught. (These make up the “training objectives.”) 5. Organize the selected skills and knowledge into suitable teaching units (modules) and develop the training design (including brief outlines of module content and planned training methods). 6. Draft expanded outlines of modules, including instructional objectives, main body of text, and descriptions of training methods, examples and exercises. 7. Experts provide realistic examples and information for use in exercises. 8. Draft the complete modules, facilitator guidelines, and course director guidelines. 9. Field-test the training materials. 10. Revise and finalize training materials based on the field test. 1.1 Defining the target population The target population is the group of learners for whom the training is intended. It is critical to define this group in order to design the training appropriately. For example, training for clinicians would be very different from......
