AVIANCE Suite Announces ICD-10 Coder Testing and Assessment Tool
Central Learning® Scores Coder Performance and Automatically Identifies ICD-10 Coding Skill Gaps Using Real Medical Records
Allentown, PA (February 16, 2016) – AVIANCE Suite, a health information technology company for provider organizations, proudly announces the availability of Central Learning®, a web-based coding assessment software tool for ICD-10. The announcement was made by the company’s Founder and CEO, Manny Pena, RHIA.
Central Learning automatically monitors ICD-10 productivity and accuracy scores using real medical record cases and a vetted, standardized answer key. The online system provides coding managers with immediate and detailed performance data and analytics for new coding trainees as well as seasoned production coders. Single coders or entire coding teams can be measured and assessed with Central Learning.
Coding managers are up to 40% more efficient by automatically grading and scoring coder skills in ICD-10 and CPT. For example, one hospital site states, “Traditionally 4-5 days were required for our ICD-10 coding manager to review coder’s codes, score and analyze data results. With Central Learning, this is done instantaneously – an 80% productivity improvement.”
“Central Learning automatically grades and scores coder skills using real cases and actual clinical documentation—versus hypothetical coding scenarios and traditional check-the-box tests,” mentions Peña. With ICD-10 underway, hospitals must continually monitor their coding performance and return on investment for ICD-10 education including coder training and clinical documentation improvement (CDI). Central Learning assesses an organization’s progress with ICD-10 coding quality and productivity without the need for expensive, manual, and labor intensive coding audits.
