AAOS presents coding courses throughout the year in conjunction with Karen Zupko & Associates (KZA). The Friday Orthopaedic Workshop, Robust Revenue Cycle Strategies, dives deep into field-tested, efficient workflows that speed up the revenue cycle and bolster revenue. The afternoon session, Power Coding in the Office, focuses on coding for office procedures and services. On Saturday, the Power Coding in the ER and OR course will take a comprehensive look at how to code an array of services as well as reviewing the latest coding updates for 2019. Physicians, practice administrators, practice managers, billing and coding staff are encouraged to attend any or all of the courses.
