(Press Release) Primary Eyecare Network, a division of ABB OPTICAL GROUP, announced an additional course on transitioning into ICD-10 on Sunday, September 27 from 7 a.m. to noon PDT at the Hyatt Regency in Sacramento, CA.
The course, entitled Countdown to ICD-10: Managing the Transition, will be presented by John A. McGreal, OD, director of Missouri Eye Associates, a medical-surgical consultation center, who has lectured nationally and internationally for more than 20 years on industry-related topics.
“Due to the overwhelming response to our August ICD-10 events in Irvine and Pleasanton, we have added another course before the October 1 transition date,” said PEN Marketing and Education Manager Mary Eastwood, OD, FAAO.
"With the increased complexity of coding in ICD-10, it is critical that practitioners and their staff understand the nuances of the new coding system. This course will prepare them for the transition with step-by-step tips and hands-on examples.”
The cost to attend is $190 for PEN members and $240 for non-members. This course is approved for four hours of Council on Optometric Practitioner Education continuing education credits.
