Frequently Asked Questions
Central Learning is fresh approach to measuring and monitoring coder knowledge. It makes coding managers up to 40% more efficient by automatically grading and scoring coder skills in ICD-10 and CPT.
Web-based and cost-effective, the software includes:
- Real cases and consistent answer keys
- Robust coding data analytics
- Graphs, tables and coder skill gap reports
- Top five and bottom five coding benchmarks
How does it work?
- Coders are assigned cases by patient type, category, diagnosis, procedure, or difficulty level.
- Coders open each case in Central Learning or within your EHR and enter codes using an abstract screen.
- Central Learning scores each case immediately upon completion.
- Management graphs, tables and coder skill gap reports are automatically generated to analyze, track, or trend.
What does data reveal?
ICD-10 coding accuracy: 66%
ICD-10 coding productivity: 64%
“Traditionally 4-5 days were required for our ICD-10 coding manager to score and analyze data results. With Central Learning, both are performed instantaneously – an 80% productivity improvement.”
Take a test drive.
Don’t wait for a deluge of denials to know if your coding is correct. Central Learning resets coding benchmarks and drives better coding accuracy in ICD-10 today. Let us show you how.
