ICD-10

ICD-10...Are you ready?
October 2015, the ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets. Bryant & Stratton College provides classroom experience that enables our healthcare students to master the practical application of ICD-10 medical coding skills applicable to the workplace. These courses identify that our commitment and relationship to the coding community continues on to this next phase of the industry shift. We continue to provide the skills, knowledge, and professional affiliation necessary to be successful in the healthcare coding and compliance industry. The following courses demonstrate the most current and reputable ICD-10 training available today.
American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC)
ICD-10-CM Curriculum
AAPC
This technical course requires participants to have strong diagnostic coding skills (at least two years coding experience strongly recommended), and prepares them for success in the mandatory AAPC National ICD-10-CM Coding Assessment. Students will combine theory with practice to assure understanding and application from the guidelines to assignment of codes. This is the official AAPC ICD-10-CM Coding Training Program delivered by AAPC-certified instructors. Students are awarded 24 CEU’s at completion of the coursework.
American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA)
ICD-10-PCS Curriculum
AHIMA
This technical course requires participants to have strong procedural coding skills (at least two years procedural coding experience strongly recommended). Students will combine theory with practice to assure understanding and application from the guidelines to construction of codes. Students will learn the structure, values, and format of ICD-10-PCS, as well as the definitions and meanings of each of the seven characters that define specific procedures. The process of “constructing” a code that reflects exactly what was performed and how it was performed will be discussed and applied in detail. Coding exercises give students ample opportunity to practice the process of building ICD-10-PCS codes that are currently assigned from ICD-9-CM Vol 3.
Students completing this course will be able to:
  • Understand the specific value of each of the 7 characters that define each axis of a procedure code, by section, format, and index
  • Demonstrate clear understanding of the format and application of the tables in ICD-10-PCS
  • Build accurate codes from the Medical and Surgical Section of ICD-10-PCS, utilizing body system, root operation, body part, approach, and device
  • Build accurate codes for procedure notes from the Obstetrics Section
This is the official AHIMA ICD-10-PCS Coding Training Program delivered by AHIMA-Approved ICD-10 CM/PCS Trainer. Students are awarded 24 CEU’s upon completion of the coursework.
American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA)
ICD-10-CM Curriculum
AHIMA
This technical course requires participants to have strong diagnostic coding skills (at least two years diagnostic coding experience strongly recommended).
