The ICD-10 Preparation Analyzer consists of a proprietary database of over 500 ICD-10 specific questions to challenge your knowledge and understanding of every aspect of ICD-10.  The ICD-10 Preparation Analyzer contains two comprehensive ICD-10-CM proficiency exams and one ICD-10-PCS proficiency exam.  Copies of the Official ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Guidelines are available in PDF format for users to download directly with the product.

A license for the ICD-10 Preparation Analyzer allows a staff member to access the tool as often as desired from date of purchase until the ICD-10 implementation date of October 1, 2013.

"We've eliminated any time pressure by licensing this tool with unlimited use through the ICD-10 implementation date of October 1, 2013," says Ben Diamond, President of HCCS.

The ICD-10 Preparation Analyzer is the latest component of the new HCCS ICD-10 Billing, Coding and Documentation Training library, which prepares coders, physicians, nurses, case managers and administrative staff on diagnostic and procedural medical coding changes.  The library is comprised of comprehensive online courses designed for both coding and non-coding personnel.  The courses range from 1 to 20 hours and are approved for CEUs by the AAPC and AHIMA.

The online training courses are:

  • Basic Introduction to ICD-10-CM
  • Understanding and Preparing for ICD-10-CM/PCS
  • Coding for the Non-Coder
  • Anatomy and Terminology Essentials from an ICD-10-CM/PCS Perspective
  • Anatomy and Terminology for Coders

  • ICD-10-CM/PCS Implementation and General Equivalence Mappings
  • Coding from the Operative Report
  • ICD-10 Implementation in a 5010 Environment
  • Preparing Your Musculoskeletal Coders for ICD-10 Implementation

Developed by ICD-10 coding experts at Contexo Media, this comprehensive course library serves as a robust "roadmap".

"The combination of the Preparation Analyzer and the ICD-10 online training courses will help organizations in their efforts to prepare for ICD-10 with minimal stress and disruption," says Mr. Diamond.
