Provo, UT, June 14, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Career Step, a premier healthcare education company, will be exhibiting at the 2013 National Institute of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) in Orlando, Florida, June 16 through the 19. In addition, Career Step will also present a new white paper on avoiding the negative financial consequences of ICD-10 at the show. As an exhibitor, Career Step will be providing information on The ICD-10 Solution in booth 1643.
"Healthcare organizations have to balance concerns for the future financial impact of ICD-10 with maintaining current productivity levels as they are managing the training necessary to prepare for the transition," said Mike Hodgson, Career Step Vice President of Healthcare and Corporate Training. "Our new white paper discusses specific strategies that should be in place to avoid significant financial impact. We are excited to be exhibiting at the HFMA conference as our education resources are designed to help organizations provide effective training for their ICD-10 stakeholders without sacrificing productivity or staff satisfaction levels."
The ICD-10 Solution, co-developed by Career Step and YES HIM Consulting, Inc., offers educational courses, resources, and project management designed to help organizations minimize the potential negative financial impact of the ICD-10 transition. Although Career Step's ICD-10 education products will be the focus of the company's attendance at the upcoming conference, the company also offers a variety of other healthcare training and staff assessment resources.
Decreases in coder productivity are one of the largest financial risks healthcare facilities may encounter through the ICD-10 transition, and strategies to minimize these decreases are the focus of both the white paper and The ICD-10 Solution's offerings. Productivity drops can cause overflowing coding queues and high DNFB numbers, which will result in decreased revenue and slowed cash flow. To help organizations avoid these results, Career Step, through The ICD-10 Solution, offers clinical knowledge assessments that provide insight into specific training and retraining needs, biomedical sciences courses that teach ICD-10 specific concepts and maximize what learners can remember without references, and ICD-10 code set training built on the ICD-10 Coding Guidelines and designed for adult learners. These training programs are designed to be delivered in two to four hours of training a week to minimize impact on current productivity levels.
