Elsevier’s MC Strategies Enhances its ICD-10 Roadmap
ATLANTA, September 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Elsevier to exhibit new, expanded readiness assessment and clinical
documentation curriculum at its Destination: ICD-10 booth at upcoming AHIMA convention
Elsevier’s MC Strategies [http://www.mcstrategies.com ], a leader in providing
eLearning solutions to more than 1,300 healthcare organizations, today announced the
continued development of its ICD-10 Roadmap with the introduction of new curricula,
including a comprehensive clinical documentation curriculum.
At its exhibit at the 84th AHIMA Convention (Booth #626, Chicago, Oct. 1-3), Elsevier
will unveil its new EduCode Clinical Documentation Improvement eLearning curriculum.
Providing the right information for coding and reimbursement is critical with the
increased specificity of ICD-10, and clinical documentation will be even more challenging.
This new curriculum will be supported by additional resources, including Clinical
Documentation webinars and a white paper available in October.
“At Elsevier, we’ve been a leader in educating healthcare organizations on coding
practices for more than 20 years. We understand the workflow and know how to lessen the
risk and fear that comes with potential change, particularly a change as fundamental as
ICD-10,” said John Schrefer, President of Elsevier’s MC Strategies. “This ongoing sharing
of knowledge through our new and updated curricula, white papers and webinars will keep
our customers current as we help them prepare for this transition. We’re all on this
journey, and we want to help prepare organizations the best we can.”
Extending that journey theme, Elsevier will continue to take entries in its
“Destination: ICD-10″ [http://icd-10online.com/destination-icd10 ] contest at AHIMA. The
contest invites participants to complete a series of ICD-10 surveys and provides a chance
to win up to $3,000 in travel money or travel-themed giveaways.
In addition to Elsevier’s continued commitment to providing the best education and
resources to ensure a successful transition to ICD-10, AHIMA attendees will see new and
updated versions of Elsevier’s Medical Terminology 2.0, ICD-10 Orientation, ICD-10
Specialty Coding Courses (Phase II), a revised and expanded ICD-10 Readiness Assessment
(more questions, increased focus on ICD-10-specific topics and improved functionality),
and major re-writes of Anatomy & Physiology and Pathophysiology courses.
