ICD-10 QUALIFIED.

ICD-10 clinical documentation, coding education and training have become a major focus and concern for healthcare providers. PPS is recommending that hospitals strongly consider retaining ICD-10 supplemental coding resources now.

ICD-10 MENTORING.

PPS will assure that your trained ICD-10 Coders are quickly up to speed and accuracy through our ICD-10 Mentor Program. PPS can provide an on-site ICD-10 Coder/Instructor to be a mentor to your new trainees by providing side-by-side coding assistance and oversight. Working directly with your coders, the mentors will review their ICD-10 coding, and provide immediate feedback and education as necessary. Our consultants specialize exclusively in each service we provide. Those that perform the Inpatient and Outpatient Mentoring are all domestically located AHIMA credentialed professionals (RHIA, RHIT or CCS) and Certified ICD-10 Trainers with a minimum of ten years of coding experience before joining PPS.
