The Indiana Hospital Association, Blue & Co., and the Indiana Health Information Management Association present the 2012 ICD-10 Training Series. This year-long training will offer four hands-on workshops and corresponding webinars designed to prepare members for the mandatory ICD-10 conversion on Oct. 1, 2013.
The first workshop was held on Nov. 29 at the Montage, Indianapolis, and the corresponding webinars were held Jan. 12 and Jan. 17. The first workshop provided participants with planning and implementation tools including developing a budget, timelines, and performing a gap analysis. The following webinars are two hours long and will provide a comprehensive overview of the day-long workshop. Recorded webinars can also be purchased for download. Contact LaTonya Harrington for more information.
Members can select to register for the entire training series or members can opt to choose individual workshops or webinars. The second workshop will be held March 8 and will walk participants through the documentation challenges associated with ICD-10 implementation.
Each workshop includes a presentation from a local hospital that started the implementation process. Participants will learn from the hospital’s successes and pitfalls and can use that example when developing a plan. The speaker will share translatable experiences and process details that can be implemented in facilities that have begun the ICD-10 transition or are just beginning. Each program in the training series is designed to build upon the prior workshop or webinar, so IHA highly recommends interested members register for the entire series.
