ICD10monitor, an online news and information service created to assist healthcare providers working with the ICD-10 coding set, is launching an exclusive educational webcast subscription service featuring 40 original webcast topics and offering listeners Continuing Education Units (CEUs) at no additional charge, officials announced this week.
The ICD10monitor webcast portfolio already includes sought-after topics such as Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updates to the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) and Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS), as well as updates and best practices for coding and documenting conditions including cardiovascular surgery, myocardial infarctions, COPD, Sepsis II and III, spinal fusion, congestive heart failure, and more. But this new subscription service is specifically designed to meet the comprehensive needs of healthcare providers, physician offices, consultants, billing groups, organizations, and all manners of contractors whose work touches on coding and billing.
Built on a web-based platform, this educational content can be accessed anytime, anywhere via Internet connection, whereby users can gain access to invaluable advice and input from many of the industry’s most knowledgeable experts. ICD10monitor carefully curates the content, offering solutions to many of the most pressing contemporary coding-related issues faced by the industry at large.
“Subscribers to the ICD10monitor educational webcast series can also participate in each of the live educational webcasts, which allows them to ask questions of the presenters during the live event,” explained Angela Kornegor, Executive Director of MedLearn Media, the parent company of ICD10monitor. “Or, subscribers can participate in the educational webcast with an on-demand format, which is as simple as pressing ‘play’ to start and ‘pause’ to stop.”
Kornegor added that ICD10monitor will offer access to the cloud-based Web platform in two ways, via individual subscriptions or on a site license basis, which will allow a single facility to give its entire staff access to the entire range of the content.
“In today’s healthcare industry, with so many remote coding staff operating nationwide, this subscription service will allow teams to get on the same page, accessing the same data and information at the same time, thus delivering the same message to everyone,” Kornegor said. “Our ICD10monitor listeners and readers were asking for an affordable way to obtain education and information that is relevant, specific, accurate, and advanced, so that they could wrap their arms around their entire coding teams, both those in the office and those working remotely, in order to help all of them do their jobs more efficiently and effectively. So in listening to our audience, we decided to develop a Web portal that offers a one-step login, lending access to our entire suite of educational content with a click of the mouse.”
In addition to offering subscribers access to ICD10monitor’s popular annual coding webcast series on ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, and MS-DRG changes, as mentioned, the new service also will offer CEUs for the purposes of attaining certification or re-certification from such respected credentialing organizations as AAPC (formerly known as the American Academy of Professional Coders), and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA.)
Typically, education and CEUs constitute separate line-item expenses for any provider’s budget.
“The ICD10monitor educational webcast portal has been designed to be a single source for coding and documentation education and CEU credits,” said Chuck Buck, ICD10monitor publisher and program host for Talk-Ten-Tuesdays, its weekly Internet news broadcast. “The content is unique, original, and relevant, as it comes from professionals working in the ICD-10 environment every day.”
