The clock is ticking toward the 2014 implementation of the new ICD-10 coding systems in the United States. The challenge posed by the new system for hospitals and other healthcare organizations will be enormous. As a result, coder productivity and accuracy are expected to decline by 10 to 15 percent, and the need for new coders is expected to rise by 25 percent. Hospitals are struggling with ways to boost staff knowledge, offer the necessary education, retain qualified personnel and recruit new coders – all within a limited budget.
ELSEVIER is ready to help.
With the ICD-10 Readiness Assessment, an eLearning tool specifically designed to evaluate staff core knowledge and skills against the requirements of ICD-10, providers can gain a critical advantage in the race to prepare for ICD-10 implementation. Because ICD-10 CM/PCS will demand a high level of coder expertise in the areas of anatomy, pathophysiology and medical terminology, it is critical that managers conduct an overall current-state assessment to pinpoint individual knowledge gaps in these key areas.
To help meet the challenge, the ICD-10 Readiness Assessment includes 130 multiple choice questions with rationale designed to measure knowledge in such categories as:
