Ashtabula County Medical Center Prepares Coders for ICD-10 Implementation with Online ICD-10 Training Course

Course “a good fit for the fast-paced hospital environment”

BEDFORD MASSACHUSETTS –  November 22, 2013 Ashtabula County Medical Center (ACMC) – a top-ranked hospital in Nephrology, Pulmonology, and Urology according to U. S. News and World Report – is preparing several of its medical coders for ICD-10 implementation with Libman Education’s training course Anatomy & Physiology for Coders.

The course efficiently provides coders with a complete review of major body systems. Anatomy & Physiology for Coders’ online, self-paced format allows coders to work around their busy schedule – and spares them the time and travel costs of learning at an onsite facility. With the course’s concise-yet-thorough format, students can maximize learning in minimal time.

“Libman Education’s ICD-10 training course is a good fit for the fast-paced hospital environment,” said Alice Bradnan, ACMC’s CCS Coding Coordinator. “Since hospital coders have a lot on their plate, they need training that is both flexible and efficient. The Anatomy & Physiology course provides this, which helps the learning process. Well-trained coders further our vision to always improve our job performance, and to maintain financial stability and responsibility.”

ACMC is a private, not-for-profit, community-oriented medical center that has offered services for a hundred years. The hospital is the largest medical center in Ashtabula County Ohio, and has 249 licensed beds. ACMC’s mission includes providing “the best possible medical care through all phases of life to those seeking help.” ACMC was named seven times as one of the best 99 places to work in NE Ohio through the NorthCoast 99 award.

Anatomy & Physiology for Coders emphasizes what coders need to know in order to learn and use ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS. While a 12 week course, Anatomy & Physiology for Coders can be completed in 15 weeks to give students more time flexibility.

The course covers content of particular value to coders, including: common diseases and disorders, selected medical terminology, frequently ordered laboratory tests, and frequently prescribed drugs. Benefits begin immediately, as the course gives coding professionals immediate knowledge for increasing their ICD-9 and CPT coding proficiency.
