Improve Your Organization’s Coding Accuracy with Inpatient Coding Training Plans for Your Corporate Coding Team
Inpatient coding is generally considered a complex process. Since the patient stays at an Inpatient hospital or facility for an extended period, coding their entire encounter requires more ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS codes to capture every diagnosis and service performed.
And, every year, those Inpatient codes and guidelines have revisions, additions, and deletions. So, it is imperative that Inpatient coders receive frequent training on the quarterly and annual ICD-10 updates to successfully interpret the complexities of Inpatient coding.
As nationally recognized experts in the health information management field, we understand the many benefits of ongoing coding education for your corporate team. We have several training options to meet your team’s educational needs and ensure your coding accuracy standards.
What is the ‘Refresh with YES’ Education Series?
Our Refresh with YES education series covers a wide range of Inpatient, Outpatient, and Professional Fee specialties and hot topics in the medical field. The goal is to “refresh” the learner on how to code the topic or specialty using the most recent ICD-10 and CPT coding guidelines and practical, real-world examples.
Each 15-minute courses are conveniently packaged into one- to two-hour learning paths and include approved CEUs that can be used toward AAPC and AHIMA. The refresher courses are updated annually with the latest codes and guidelines, so coding teams are guaranteed to receive the most accurate education.
Learners can access the Refresh with YES series anytime, anywhere due to the easily accessible on-demand format of our Learning Management System (LMS).

Over 10 weeks, coders learn how to review patient records and abstract information to correctly select the corresponding ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS codes and IPPS/MS-DRG payment information. Learners receive worksheets and assessments periodically to ensure they comprehend the material.
