Elsevier/MC, Care Communications offer ICD-10 solution for healthcare organisations

    Elsevier / MC Strategies,  today announced its collaboration with External link  Care Communications, a leader in Health Information Management (HIM) consulting. The result is a comprehensive resource for an ICD-10 transition, from planning through implementation and beyond.

    “Healthcare organizations preparing for the transition to ICD-10 need to investigate the right tools that will help thoroughly educate and train coders, providers and other key users of ICD-10, efficiently and economically,” said Deborah Neville, RHIA, CCS-P, PCS, Director of Revenue Cycle, Coding and Compliance, Elsevier / MC Strategies. “By collaborating with Care Communications and combining our resources, we are able to offer a complete suite of ICD-10 preparedness tools and services that will bring users up to speed and allow them to be ready and fully operational before the 2013 implementation date.”

    Elsevier’s External link  e-learning ICD-10 suite, which includes its ICD-10 Roadmap and educational resources such as a series of white papers and webinars, will be fully integrated into Care Communications’ offerings to offer a robust, complete solution. The ICD-10 Roadmap is divided into four phases of the transition – evaluation, planning, action and management – and offers recommendations for planning as well as an educational program that provides the right training at the right time. The newest External link  white paper from Elsevier, “Two Years and Counting,” includes where healthcare organizations should be in their transition process, and provides an in-depth look at the four phases of transition.

    Care Communications will offer the e-learning solution to healthcare organizations as a part of its ICD-10 readiness and implementation services designed help professionals navigate the path to successful ICD-10 transition, assisting at every point within the transition process.

    “Our ICD-10 customers asked us to expand our ICD-10 services to include an on-line resource for coder and provider assessment and education. After careful evaluation we chose the MC Strategies ICD-10 e-learning solutions due to its thoroughness and flexibility,” said Kathy Johnson, Vice President of Coding Quality and Compliance, Care Communications.  “Adding the e-learning solution to our assessment and implementation services was the final piece in the puzzle and we are now able to provide a complete ICD-10 readiness portfolio that will continue to grow our position as a leader among ICD-10 consultants and providers.”
