Career Step to Launch New Inpatient Auditing Program at AHIMA16 Convention
Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and professional training, is pleased to announce that it will be launching its new Inpatient Auditing program, developed to help organizations fill the gap for skilled auditors, at the 2016 Convention and Exhibit of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) in Baltimore, Maryland. The convention is October 15 through 19, and Career Step will be exhibiting the new auditing program in booth 1006.
“Over the past six months, our clients have asked us for inpatient auditing education,” said Laurie McBrierty, Career Step Vice President of Product Management. “We are thrilled we can now meet the demand for this critical need within the industry, especially as the demand continues to increase from our clients and across the industry.”
Career Step’s Inpatient Auditing program starts with foundational knowledge, which includes training on necessary soft skills. A differentiating component is the practicum that ensures the inpatient auditor is ready to apply their new skills as soon as the course is completed. These auditors will help healthcare organizations reduce the cost of educating auditors and ensure correct reimbursement.
“With the launch of Inpatient Auditing as well as Career Step’s recent acquisition of Medic-CE, a leading provider of healthcare continuing education, the message is clear that we are committed to healthcare education,” said Mike Hodgson, Career Step Executive Vice President of Healthcare Products and Partnerships. “These initiatives exemplify the Career Step education cycle as we work to identify a need, determine how to meet it through education, develop the education resources necessary and, ultimately, drive better business results.”
