Proficiency tool helps HIM management perform ICD-10 staff assessments

BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTSMarch 14, 2013 – Libman Education announces an online Anatomy and Physiology Skills Assessment tool to help medical coding directors better assess medical coding department readiness for ICD-10.

“The Anatomy & Physiology Skills Assessment tool is an easy and affordable way for directors to determine where their medical coders stand in regards to ICD-10 coding proficiency,” said Susan Pepple, Vice President and COO of Libman Education, Inc. “The assessment reports out individual scores in 12 unique body systems areas and provides an overall score.  Managers and supervisors using the assessment can easily gauge the readiness of their staff.”

A strong knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology is a recommended prerequisite for successfully transitioning medical coding staff to ICD-10-CM/PCS in advance of the October 2014 implementation deadline. The greater specificity of ICD-10-PCS, in particular, means that good A&P knowledge will be required to code quickly and accurately.

The Anatomy and Physiology for Coders Assessment consists of 120 questions covering 12 critical body systems corresponding to Libman Education’s popular online Anatomy and Physiology for Coders course.  Course completion time is estimated to be 60-90 minutes. Group pricing is available.
