Do you want to simplify the transition to ICD-10-PCS? ICD-10 Prep: Assessing Coders’ A&P Proficiency explains the benefits and importance of assessing coders’ strengths and weaknesses in the biomedical sciences prior to ICD-10-PCS training, and provides the methods necessary to carry out assessments. This audio seminar is designed to expedite the learning process during transition by preemptively addressing weaknesses in coding staff.

  • Describe the relationship between ICD-10-PCS and coders' skills in the biomedical sciences
  • Explain the importance of the development of a role-based training plan which includes ICD-10-PCS prep
  • Identify methods of assessing coders' strengths and weaknesses in the biomedical sciences
  • Review case scenarios illustrating the level of A&P knowledge required for ICD-10-PCS
