Now Available for Educators/Auditors
BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – July 8, 2020 – HIM professionals who have benefited from ICD-10-PCS coding expert Lynn Kuehn’s dynamic approach to teaching know that it is more than just delivering proprietary content: it is about making complex ideas understandable and guiding learners to higher-order thinking. The re-release of Kuehn’s ICD-10-PCS: Root Operation Decision Making provides an essential tool for coding educators and internal auditors to mentor staff in their own organization.
“PCS coding is complicated and can be confusing but it is so important to get it right,” said Lynn Kuehn, MS, RHIA, CCS-P, FAHIMA, author of ICD-10-PCS: Root Operation Decision Making. “If your coders cannot consistently select the correct root operation, or spend way too much time trying to figure it out, you need to help them.”
ICD-10-PCS: Root Operation Decision Making has been re-released to provide additional support for educators and auditors responsible for coding quality at their organization. Starting with a quick overview of learning theory and focusing on how coders gain new knowledge, the course utilizes a variety of learning styles (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic), making lessons engaging and memorable. ICD-10-PCS: Root Operation Decision Making focuses on the thought process needed to make correct decisions based on the definitions and the guidelines. Lynn’s successful approach to teaching this complex topic involves three phases: systematically unpacking the material, turning it into engaging and effective lessons, and then providing extra assistance to coders who are struggling.
