  • (1888PressRelease) July 25, 2014 - Libman Education course author Lynn Kuehn, MS, RHIA, CCS-P, FAHIMA has won a 2014 AHIMA Triumph Literary Legacy Award for co-authoring the book ICD-10-PCS: An Applied Approach.

    Each year, the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Awardees are chosen for demonstrating extraordinary leadership, volunteerism and talent.

    The Literary Legacy Award is given for a significant contribution to the knowledge base of the HIM field through an insightful recent publication, building on the enduring tradition of the Edna K. Huffman Literary Award.

    "It is an honor to receive such a prestigious award from such an important organization," said Kuehn. "And I am thankful that ICD-10-PCS: An Applied Approach has made such an impact in the HIM profession. Therese M. Jorwic, my co-author, and I are so pleased the book has been embraced by trainers and students alike - anyone who needs to understand the ICD-10-PCS system in detail to ensure accurate and complete coding of health information."

    ICD-10-PCS: An Applied Approach, authored by Lynn Kuehn and Therese Jorwic, is the "go-to" resource for learning and mastering ICD-10-PCS. The comprehensive book includes step-by-step instructions and exercises at all levels, and is used throughout Kuehn's 3-part Libman Education course series for mastering ICD-10-PCS.

    Pamela J. Haney, MS, RHIA, CCS, CPC-H, Director of Training and Education for Libman Education and winner of the 2013 AHIMA Triumph Mentor Award, said that "ICD-10-PCS, An Applied Approach is a seminal work that will provide a model for future coding textbooks in its thoroughness, scope, and clarity. This resource demonstrates an exceptional depth of knowledge of the new procedure coding system and how students, both new to the field and coding veterans, need to be taught in order to master the materials."

    Haney added, "Our colleagues and our students comment on how the book is helping them to conquer their fears while they learn to conquer the new codes. As an industry and a profession, we are fortunate to have the talented Mss. Kuehn and Jorwic and their extraordinary textbook available to us."
