Determining the root operation, or intent of a procedure, is essential to accurate coding and illustrates the precision of the code values defined in the ICD-10-PCS system. "Root Operations: Key to Procedure Coding in ICD-10-PCS" by Ann Zeisset, RHIT, CCS, CCS-P, and Ann Barta, MSA, RHIA, is an e-book that offers coding professionals and students the tools to differentiate and contrast procedures coded in ICD-9-CM with those coded in ICD-10-PCS. The strategies presented address all sections of ICD-10-PCS, offer a snapshot of anatomy and physiology for ICD-10-PCS, and define and illustrate code structure for each section. Root operations of ICD-10-PCS are highlighted to clarify and explain critical factors to consider in correct code assignment.
