viii PEDIATRIC ICD-10-CM 2022: A MANUAL FOR PROVIDER-BASED CODING Acknowledgments Pediatric ICD-10-CM: A Manual for Provider-Based Coding is the product of the efforts of many dedicated individuals. First and foremost, we must thank Cindy Hughes, CPC, CFPC, consulting editor, for her professional input and particularly for her ongoing work to make this manual more user friendly. We would also like to thank members of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Committee on Coding and Nomenclature, past and present, and the AAP Coding Publications Editorial Advisory Board. They support all coding efforts here at the AAP. These members contribute extensive time, reviewing and editing various coding content for the AAP. We would also like to extend a very special thank-you to members of various subspecialty sections of the AAP who contributed their expertise and knowledge to the development of the original manual. Lastly, we would like to acknowledge the tireless work of Jeffrey F. Linzer Sr, MD, FAAP, and Edward A. Liechty, MD, FAAP. Both Dr Liechty and Dr Linzer are advocates for pediatrics and neonatology and ensure that our issues are heard. They advocate for all pediatric patients in helping get codes established for conditions that need to be tracked for purposes of research and quality. They both keep the AAP and pediatric issues at the forefront of diagnostic coding, and we are very grateful for their time and expertise! ICD-10_2022.indb 8 8/12/21 4:20 PM
