The program is designed to quickly get newly hired staff members up to speed on medical coding by allowing purchasers of Libman Education courses to begin training immediately. By bypassing the waiting time of getting staff sufficiently trained, the program helps to maximize a new employee’s productivity.
“The program works like this,” said Susan Pepple, vice president and COO of Libman Education. “Simply order your online course, and it will be queued up and ready to go when your new hire arrives at work. Heads of agencies are busy and this helps to minimize the effort of teaching new staff members their role in coding, which in turn frees department heads up to focus on their regular duties.”
“At the same time,” Pepple adds, “by providing ongoing, self-paced training, the program keeps staff from waiting to be trained by department heads detained by other tasks. All things considered, the program is a win-win for all sides.”
The Libman Education course used by Masonicare, Fundamentals of Coding for Home Health, is designed for new or inexperienced home health coders, clinicians and clerical staff – as well as those who wish to review the fundamentals. The course provides an overview of how to code, how to utilize ICD-9 Coding Guidelines correctly, and how coding impacts agency reimbursement.
Through the New Hire Training Program, Masonicare had the course ready on a new employee’s first day.
