Provo, UT, January 29, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is pleased to announce that Career Step Executive Vice President Mike Hodgson will be the featured speaker in a webinar hosted by ICD10monitor on Thursday, February 5 at 1 p.m. Eastern time. Mr. Hodgson will be speaking about the trends Career Step is seeing as its clients are preparing for the October 2015 shift to the ICD-10 code set as well as the future beyond the implementation of the new code set.
“With the ICD-10 transition less than a year away, we are seeing many of our clients cope with the challenge of determining the ICD-10 training—and retraining—needs of their current staff as well as trying to find new coding staff to meet the increasing demand for coding services,” said Mr. Hodgson. “In our February 5 webinar, I will discuss how several of our clients are dealing with these challenges, which are quickly becoming a reality for the entire healthcare industry.”
During the webinar, Mr. Hodgson will provide real-life examples of how clients are addressing ICD-10 training through assessments and tailored training. He will also discuss clients’ development of long-term educational programs designed to help meet the need for quality medical coding professionals.
The webinar is intended for HIM directors, coding supervisors, coding consultants, coders, clinical documentation improvement specialists (CDI) and physicians. It will be held on Thursday, February 5 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time.
“Over the next few years, the HIM industry will see a number of changes, especially given the current October 2015 ICD-10 mandate,” continued Mr. Hodgson. “This requires organizations to be planning, adjusting and putting programs in place right now if they want to be prepared for the future. Our webinar will help them move along that path of preparation by discussing the value of assessing staff’s ICD-10 knowledge retention, how they can address education needs by individual coder and strategies for building long-term education programs.”
