Date:9/7/2011

JERICHO, N.Y., Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Care Compliance Strategies, Inc., (HCCS), the leading provider of online healthcare compliance and competency training courses, today announced the release of a comprehensive library of ICD-10 online training courses. This eLearning library addresses the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate for all healthcare providers to transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 by October, 2013. The courses are being offered in partnership with Contexo Media, a division of Access Intelligence, and are available for delivery today through HCCS.

Developed by ICD-10 coding experts at Contexo Media, the comprehensive course library serves as a robust "roadmap", taking students from the basics of ICD-10 to proficiency in a matter of hours, not weeks. This "stair step" approach to ICD-10 training helps prepare the healthcare professional for ICD-10 implementation in an efficient, effortless manner.

The new ICD-10 Medical Coding and Compliance Training library prepares coders, physicians, nurses, case managers and administrative staff on diagnostic and procedural medical coding changes. The library is comprised of comprehensive online courses designed for both coding and non-coding personnel. The courses range from 1 to 20 hours and are approved for continuing education units (CEUs) by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).

The library of courses includes:

  • Anatomy and Terminology Essentials
  • Anatomy and Terminology for Coders
  • Advanced Anatomy and Terminology for Coders
  • Basic Introduction to ICD-10-CM
  • Coding for the Non-Coder
  • ICD-10-CM/PCS Implementation and General Equivalence Mappings
  • Coding from the Operative Report
  • ICD-10 Implementation in a 5010 Environment
  • Preparing for ICD-10 Implementation in 2011
  • Preparing Your Musculoskeletal Coders for ICD-10 Implementation

"The transition to ICD-10 is a significant challenge to all organizations within the healthcare arena," says Ben Diamond, President of HCCS. "Those who wait may find it difficult to complete all necessary training to remain in compliance and in turn, risk significant revenue shortfalls through denial of claims and compliance issues.  This new online course library provides a convenient and cost-effective method to educate and certify staff on the changes."
