AHIMA’s ICD-10 Training Tools, Resources & FAQs
AHIMA has developed a comprehensive set of Training Tools, Resources, and FAQs to help you prepare for ICD-10/PCS implementation. AHIMA’s Role-Based Training model identifies key tasks or milestones that must be completed within specific time frames by specific organizations and in some cases specific roles within organizations.
The AHIMA CDI Workgroup has responded to the needs of ICD-10 implementation by creating a large library of CDI ICD-10 documentation tips that are now available (online in PDF) for the healthcare industry. These tips focus on the language and/or wording that will garnish greater details and specificity of the coded data for a given diagnosis, condition, disease and/or surgical procedure.
