BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – May 22, 2017 – Libman Education has released a suite of courses to provide comprehensive training in the area of pediatrics coding. The courses, developed in conjunction with leading pediatric hospitals, cover ICD-10-PCS, ICD-10-CM, and CPT coding. The courses were authored by nationally recognized coding experts and Libman Education authors, Gail I. Smith and Lynn Kuehn.
“Pediatric coding is complex and unique. In the way that children are not just small adults, pediatric medicine is fundamentally different in many ways from adult medicine,” said Gail I. Smith, author of the ICD-10-CM and CPT pediatric courses. “With these courses, we provide the guidance and direction needed by coders to demystify the complexity of pediatric coding.”
Whether coding for a pediatric service within a general acute hospital, or dealing with the highly complex medicine as practiced at our nation’s Children’s Hospitals, coders will benefit from additional training specific to pediatrics. Available online and on demand, this training is appropriate for individuals or pediatric coding teams. The courses may be purchased individually or as a complete resource.
Lynn Kuehn, author of the ICD-10-PCS pediatric courses, said, “The procedures performed in our nation’s hospitals on our youngest members of society are truly miraculous. They are also complex and challenging. My approach to ICD-10-PCS pediatrics coding is to divide the topic into 15 individual courses by body system allowing coders the ‘deep dive’ needed to really master the materials. Taken individually or as an entire comprehensive curriculum, the goal is to help coders gain a thorough understanding of PCS coding for pediatric procedures.”
