Date:1/6/2014

Shrewsbury, MA (PRWEB) January 06, 2014

Whether an individual is in the process of choosing their first profession or looking to change career paths, one should consider pursuing a career in medical billing and coding. Working as a medical coder is a way to contribute to the health care field without years of training or being married to the job and pride can be taken knowing one is serving an industry that helps countless people every day.

AHDPG, the nation's leading provider of online training for allied health professionals, is proud to announce its newest training program for individuals looking to become an ICD-10 Inpatient Certified Coding Specialist.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor the need for medical records and health information professionals is expected to grow by over 37,000 positions by 2020. That is a growth rate of over 21%, making these positions one of the fastest growing segments in the U.S. In addition, all existing medical coders, estimated to be well over 100,000 individuals will be required to learn a new coding system (ICD-10) in time for its implementation on October, 1st, 2014.

"In response to this overwhelming industry transition and our ongoing focus to help individuals launch or transition into a new career as a medical coder, AHDPG is excited to announce this new program," say Peter Reilly, President and CEO. "Over the past twelve months we have worked with our industry contacts to assess and evaluate what the market's requirements are in anticipation of this transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. We are thrilled to have partnered with Pamela Haney, MS, RHIA, CCS, CPC-H in the creation of this program."

For over 30 years Pam has been actively involved in the health information management industry serving in a variety of roles including Director of Medical Records, Director of Health Information Services, Privacy Officer and Director of Coding Services. In addition Pam has worked to continually develop the skills and knowledge of those individuals who have worked for her, as well as through her industry activities and in a variety of teaching positions both online and onsite.

Under Pam's direction this comprehensive program has been developed to include sections on medical terminology, anatomy & physiology, pathopharmacology, health information and delivery systems, legal and compliance issues - everything a well-trained medical coder needs to know today. It is the most up-to-date and comprehensive program on the market and under Pam's leadership the program will continue to evolve to meet the needs of the students and the employers we serve.

Students are able to take this course from the comfort of their home making it easy to work into busy schedules. Through this course, students will gain all of the necessary knowledge to successfully complete the Certified Coding Associate exam administered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and work effectively in a growing, rewarding industry.
