Libman Education Announces Advanced ICD-10-PCS Course
Program designed to quickly get newly hired medical coders up to speed
The course is authored by nationally recognized ICD-10 expert Lynn Kuehn, who called it “a ‘deep dive’ into the specifics of ICD-10-PCS organized by body system.”
“The course’s in-depth and advanced ICD-10-PCS knowledge provides students with the tools to master ICD-10-PCS,”
ICD-10-PCS, Part 3: Advanced Coding by Body System applies the basics learned in Libman Education’s first two ICD-10-PCS courses, such as definitions of root operations, index and table concepts, and selecting the correct characters based on the documentation. The course teaches students what they need to know about:
- Complex bypass procedures.
- Devices (putting them in, taking them out, revising them, and special situations such as recalled devices).
- Body part selection not included in the body part key.
- Definitions of the devices and qualifiers unique to each body system during the coding process.
- Differentiating between root operations that are not obvious.
The course is online and self-paced, allowing students to work around their busy schedule. Those who complete the course are eligible for 12 AHIMA continuing education units(CEUs).
