Franklin, TN (PRWEB) October 03, 2016
HCTec was proud to announce the selection of Libman Education’s CD-10-CM and -PCS Code Updates – Annotated by Lynn Kuehn as its online training solution for 423 staff members to prepare for the 2017 fiscal year ICD-10 updates.
HCTec coders were recently challenged with an extensive update to the ICD-10 codes on October 1. This included 3,651 new codes and 487 revised code titles. “As a leading provider of coders to hospitals across the country, it is critical for our staff to be ahead of the curve and ensure their coding is both accurate and complete, and that their coding decisions are defensible,” said Teresa Carter, Director of HIM. “At HCTec we have set the bar extremely high. Our clients have grown to expect a level of excellence that requires accuracy and accountability. Libman Education’s courses provide us high quality training with customized reporting and tracking to ensure we are able to monitor our coders’ progress and success. This is important both to us and to our customers.”
Libman Education author Lynn Kuehn commented, “For those of us long-term coders, we expect an annual code update and guideline changes. While some changes are very simple and some quite complex, not all the changes make perfect sense, which makes using the new codes a little extra tricky. We determined that a short webinar might not be the answer this year and therefore created our comprehensive ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Code Update courses.”
HCTec provides Healthcare Information Management and Healthcare Information Technology resources and solutions that fit the needs of their clients and produce measurable results; with a focus on helping healthcare organizations reduce costs, improve clinical outcomes, and reduce medical errors.
