ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS
Online comprehensive training modules through Continuing Education 2013-14. All courses for the coding modules are considered Special Topics course with the course description listed as:
Cost: $150 per course
Topics address recently identified current events, skills, knowledge,and/or attitudes and behaviors pertinent to the technology or occupation and relevant to the professional development of the student. This course was designed to be repeated multiple times to improve student proficiency. The courses are developed to provide coding skill building for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS through a series of modules, or courses described below, designed for current coding staff, including credentialed professionals in need of specific ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS training.
Recommended Prerequisites: Medical terminology and anatomy and physiology.
End of Course Outcomes: Students will be able to:
- apply ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting (Modules 1 - 6)
- demonstrate the diagnosis coding process including abstracting, assigning, and sequencing codes. (Modules 2 - 6)
- apply ICD-10-PCS Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting (Modules 7 - 10)
- determine appropriate root operations for procedures (Module 7 - 10)
- build coding skills using case studies (Module 10)
TRAINING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CURRENTPERSONNEL:
Physician Office staff: Modules 1 & 2 plus any applicable modules for practice/specialty.
Hospital Outpatient Coding Personnel: Modules 1 - 6
Hospital Inpatient Coding Personnel:Modules 1 - 10
Clinical Documentation Specialist: Modules 1 - 10
Hospital business office or registration personnel: Modules 1 and 7 at a minimum.
Length of Courses: 4 weeks
TEXTBOOK AND RESOURCES:
- Current ICD-10-CM draft code book or encoder access required for Modules 1-6 and 10
- Current ICD-10-PCS draft code book or encoder access required for Modules 7-10

Instructors are ICD-10-CM and PCS trained with previous coding experience in order to provide quality course delivery and curriculum.Instructors have at least one of the following credentials: RHIT, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P, and have completed the AHIMA ICD-10
Approved Trainer course.
The coding modules are offered at a cost-effective rate by providing introductory modules and specialty chapter modules. This curriculum is developed to meet the introductory training and subsequent continuous training needs of employees in hospitals, physician practice groups, home health agencies, state health departments, rehabilitation facilities, and other health organizations.
Each module provides online 4-week training sessions. Other health professionals, besides coders, must also learn the coding systems in order to communicate with payers, providers, and other healthcare professionals. The mandated October 1, 2014 implementation date will be here soon. Training should occur at least six months prior to implementation for skill development. These courses offer more training for less cost for skill building and familiarity. The courses were developed by qualified AHIMA ICD-10 trainers.
