Sequelae of COVID-19: Part II – Neurological, Psychological, Renal Complications

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, the pandemic has been accompanied by a COVID-19 “infodemic” with more than 11,000 COVID-19 papers submitted to JAMA since the start of the pandemic. The information reflected in our White Papers serves as a guide to remind coders and clinical documentation integrity (CDI) specialists to dig deeper into the medical record to uncover overlooked diagnosis documentation. The goal is to highlight some, but not all, commonly seen complications in the patient population infected with COVID-19. This paper is part two in our series regarding the medical hurdles related to COVID-19 infection focusing on neurological, psychological, and renal complications. Intellis believes in sharing education, and the more healthcare knows about identifying possible conditions arising from COVID-19, the better researchers can collect data to help provide physicians with the knowledge needed to care for their patients. Our health information management industry plays a role in providing that support.
