AHA shares new resource on ICD-10-CM coding for social determinants of health

The American Hospital Association (AHA) recently released a new resource that hospitals and health systems can use to educate caregivers and coding professionals about the important need to collect data on the social determinants of health. AHA successfully advocated changing the requirement for these codes to be based on information documented by all clinicians involved in the patient’s care instead of physician documentation only.

Please share this resource with your physicians, nonphysician health care providers and coding professionals.
