Career Step and HRS Hosting June 4 ICD10monitor Webinar on the Importance of Auditing and Physician Training for ICD-10 Success

Provo, Utah (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is pleased to announce that Career Step Executive Vice President Mike Hodgson will be a featured speaker in a June 4 webinar presented by ICD10monitor in conjunction with Kimberly J. Carr the Director of Clinical Documentation at HRS. Mr. Hodgson and Ms. Carr will be discussing the importance of auditing and physician training for a successful ICD-10 transition.

“We have worked closely with HRS on a number of initiatives over the last several years, and I am excited to be presenting this webinar with Kim,” said Mr. Hodgson. “HRS’s focus on auditing is a perfect complement to our message about the need for physician and coder training and improved clinical documentation. These are areas of ICD-10 readiness preparations that are toward the bottom of the priority list for many organizations—and they need to be given more attention if organizations want to ensure a successful ICD-10 transition and minimize associated reimbursement challenges.”

The upcoming webinar is intended for HIM directors, coding supervisors, coding consultants, coders, clinical documentation (CDI) specialists, auditors and physicians. It will be held on Thursday, June 4 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time.

During the presentation, Mr. Hodgson and Ms. Carr will discuss how organizations can develop an audit work plan and physician documentation education plans as a part of their ICD-10 planning and preparations. Specifically they will review how adjusting auditing frequency and practices in addition to training healthcare providers on correct documentation now will prevent issues later on and quickly provide the insight needed to identify problems and implement solutions.

“With the push for ICD-10 readiness, many organizations have not even begun considering their audit strategy,” said Ms. Carr. “We know that ICD-10 will decrease productivity levels—our research has consistently validated that one inpatient record per hour is typical with ICD-10—but there are steps that can be taken to minimize that productivity loss. Routine auditing combined with coder and provider training are high on the list of tasks organizations need to be considering, which is why I am excited to be presenting with Career Step on these topics. Our goal is to raise awareness of these issues and help organizations ensure more successful transitions.”

Space is limited at this event. Registration is available at For more information on Career Step’s corporate training programs, visit or call 1-800-411-7073. More information on HRS can be found at
