The American Health Information Association (AHIMA) has provided new ICD-10-CM/PCS online coder training courses to help healthcare organizations prepare for the ICD-10 coding classification transition.

This interesting news was found on Healthcare IT News in their article, “AHIMA provides online help for ICD-10 work.”  This could be very helpful to those worrying about how the new coding system will affect their bottom line and financial flow.

Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine assisted indexing system and specialists in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity. Access Innovations provides training to a client’s staff and then offers quality assurance and validation services that can:

  • Minimize the risk of a coding error
  • Identify inappropriate or inadvertently applied tags
  • Display a “map” of coding distributions to allow management to get a bird’s-eye view of the coding assignment flow.

Many widely used tagging systems lack a user-friendly interface and may not implement a rigorous ANSI compliant coding subsystem. Access Innovations’ solutions are ANSI compliant and implement state-of-the-art technology to speed tagging and reduce errors.
