Grand Itasca Clinic & Hospital Prepares Medical Coders for ICD-10 with ICD-10 Readiness Course

Anatomy & Physiology for Coders offers a comprehensive and complete review of major body systems
BEDFORD, Mass. - May 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Grand Itasca Clinic & Hospital, an integrated clinic and hospital in Grand Rapids, MN, recently enrolled its medical coders in Anatomy & Physiology for Coders, an online course for preparing for the October 1, 2015 transition to ICD-10.

In twelve weeks, the ICD-10 readiness course prepares coders for the anatomy-intensive requirements of ICD-10-CM/PCS with a comprehensive and complete review of major body systems. The course has been used by a large number of hospitals and clinics for both initial ICD-10 preparation, as well as a refresher course.

“While medical coders are often not the most visible hospital workers, they are very important,” said Gretchen Danielson, Grand Itasca’s Coding and Hospital Access Manager. “Their precision makes all the difference in timely and accurate reimbursement – which affects everyone from doctor to patient. With this course, our coders can prepare for a smooth ICD-10 transition, to the benefit of the entire hospital.”

“We knew we wanted to select Libman Education’s Anatomy & Physiology for Coders to help our coders prepare for ICD-10. One of our staff members had already taken the course and found it so helpful and interesting that she is now taking it again as a refresher with the rest of the team.  Our feeling is that our coders cannot know too much A&P,” Danielson added.

Grand Itasca’s vision is to be a leader in transforming rural health care by achieving the highest levels of quality, access, and value. The 50-bed hospital and multi-specialty clinic provides the latest in advanced medical technology and treatments.

Anatomy & Physiology for Coders is online and self-paced, allowing medical coders to work around their busy schedule. Course material is reinforced with videos, interactive educational games, and full color anatomical drawings. The course also provides immediate knowledge for increasing ICD-9 and CPT coding proficiency.
