Career Step Physician Advisor Joins the ICD10monitor’s Editorial Board

Provo, UT (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is pleased to announce that Stephen Spain, MD, CPC—Career Step’s physician advisor—will be joining the ICD10monitor editorial board. Career Step is currently a Silver Sponsor of ICD10monitor, which is an online news and information source created to help healthcare providers make decisions related to the mandated ICD-10 transition.

As a member of the ICD10monitor editorial board, Dr. Spain will contribute an article each month for publication on His articles will focus on helping medical professionals improve their understanding and application of documentation and coding principles in preparation for the ICD-10 transition.

“My goal as a member of the ICD10monitor editorial board is to provide insight into what to expect and how to prepare for the conversion,” said Dr. Spain. “Training is a critical part of the preparation process, so I hope physicians, coders and all ICD-10 stakeholders will use the remaining time before the implementation date to invest in quality education that prepares them for their specific roles in the conversion and moving forward.”

Dr. Spain is a family physician with over 30 years of practice experience. He earned his Certified Professional Coder (CPC) credential in 2007 and is the immediate past president of the Tyler Chapter of the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), recently served as a member of the National Advisory Board of the AAPC, and teaches advanced medical coding at Tyler Junior College. This experience and education give Dr. Spain a rare perspective on the ICD-10 transition and make him particularly qualified to advise clinicians on how they can avoid disruptions to their work processes, patient care and cash flow during and after the ICD-10 implementation.

As the Career Step physician advisor, Dr. Spain provided guidance on the content and approach of Career Step’s ICD-10 Physician Education and Training. On Dr. Spain’s recommendation, Career Step’s program includes an overview of the purpose and value of ICD-10 as well as specialty-specific diagnosis and procedure training—all of which was designed to encourage learning and retention as quickly as possible in consideration of the many demands on providers’ time. All of the training programs are 15 to 20 minutes in length and are delivered online through a variety of platforms—including mobile and tablet devices—which allow physicians to train anytime, anywhere.

Dr. Spain’s first article will be published on in January 2014. To learn more about Career Step’s Physician Education and Training and Dr. Spain’s role in its development, visit
