Elsevier to unveil EduCode Clinical Documentation curriculum at AHIMA event

Elsevier’s MC Strategies, 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 avail able 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” 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) or an Online Medical Coding Courses, 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.
