The Update That Changed Everything
The 2015 switch from ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding created seismic shifts for millions of medical coders worldwide. During this transition, MMI helped both new and experienced medical coders, billers, auditors, and clinical documentation specialists master the updates via online ICD-10-CM training. Today, a thorough knowledge of ICD-10 is essential for the healthcare workforce. It is the responsibility of the medical coder to be educated and up-to-date so that he or she can minimize any lag time from adjusting to a new coding system. Better still, understanding this new system will eliminate possible delays in payments that could affect their practice’s cash flow.
ICD-10 (also known by its full name, the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition) is one small but crucial portion of a medical coder’s education. If you are looking to obtain a full medical coding certification, check out MMI’s Registered Medical Coder (RMC) credential. This training course will teach you everything you need to get your coding certification, including the ins and outs of ICD-10.
Already a coder but want help understanding the changes made since ICD-9? Need a few extra CEUs to maintain your current certification? Fear not — MMI also offers a 2017 ICD-10 Updates & Changes course designed to teach you everything you need to know about the system’s latest iteration. As always, this course is conducted entirely online and at your own pace, allowing you to make the transition to the latest set of codes from the comfort of your own home.
