MODULE I: Knowing When to Stop or Go with the ICD-10 / DSM-5 Transition

This module will give you a bird’s eye view of key definitions and concepts. It will get you started by introducing you to the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition (ICD-10); explains its structure; and in easy-to-follow language, help you understand the contextual relationship between the ICD-10 and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5). It will give you an overall understanding of how the two systems are intended work together to meet your billing and documentation requirements. This big-picture module will help you know why the transition is taking place and where you need to allocate your time and resources to avoid needless detours and delays. It will help you make clear decisions about what you need to stop and where you need to go to get paid quickly and efficiently after October 1, 2015. (This introductory module serves as a pre-requisite for all subsequent course modules.)
