  • (1888PressRelease) July 18, 2014 - BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS - To help post-acute care providers successfully prepare for ICD-10, Libman Education has released three new courses by Joan Usher, BS, RHIA, COS-C, ACE, a nationally recognized leader in coding for the post-acute care setting and ICD-10 coding education.

    Each course awards 3 AHIMA CEUs and targets a special post-acute care setting: Home Health Agencies, Skilled Nursing Facilities, or Hospice and Palliative Care Providers. The courses guide learners through the fundamentals of ICD-10 as a coding system and, after covering the basics, explore the application of ICD-10 to their respective settings.

    "The idea behind these courses is to provide those in various post-acute care settings with the tools necessary to successfully implement ICD-10," said Susan Pepple, Libman Education's Vice President and COO. "These courses help providers overcome common obstacles to preparing for ICD-10: finding targeted and high quality training and the time to do it. The courses' online, self-paced format allows staff members to work around their busy schedules. Our author, Joan Usher, has years of experience and provides her expertise relevant to the specific post-acute care setting."

    Those who complete any of the courses will be able to:

    Identify the code format, system structure, and design of ICD-10-CM.
    Apply Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting of ICD-10-CM codes.
    Given a case scenario, select the necessary statements to code and apply Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting to support an accurate code assignment.
