BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – April 6, 2020 – Libman Education announced the release of the Accelerated Outpatient to Inpatient Coder Training program in response to demand by hospitals dealing with the disruption of COVID-19. With outpatient services and elective procedure volumes down across the country, hospitals are seeking a way to quickly cross-train their existing outpatient coders to deal with the surge of COVID-19 medical-surgical cases.
“The normal range of demand for hospital services is being replaced by the particular needs of the COVID-19 patient. The ability to quickly and cost-effectively cross-train existing coding staff in response to changes in service volume means that coders can continue to support the mission of their facility in a meaningful way,” said Susan Pepple, President of Libman Education.
Libman Education’s solution, the Accelerated Outpatient to Inpatient Coder Training program, builds on an outpatient coder’s valuable on-the-job experience and knowledge, while it supplements their skills with the essential training necessary to assume inpatient coding responsibilities.
Delivered as online, self-paced, interactive courses, the program allows the organization to fast-track the coder training and quickly respond to demand. The program features Libman Education’s exclusive materials that may be taken sequentially or concurrently.
