LEHI, Utah—May 16, 2018—Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and professional training, is pleased to announce the release of a series of videos it has added to its Professional Medical Coding and Billing program. The videos will encourage learners to develop critical thinking and coding skills that foster confident and independent coding.
“We are very excited to add this new content to our Professional Medical Coding and Billing program,” said Cari Greenwood, Career Step revenue cycle product specialist. “Its focus on interactivity and instruction, based on coding concepts learners most frequently ask about, should be a great benefit to our learners.”
The videos are intended to supplement ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS instruction, providing additional examples and expanded explanations of select coding concepts. The interactive exercises will enrich the learner’s experience with the content and serve as a self-checkpoint, allowing learners to gauge whether they fully grasp the concepts presented.
Healthcare is one of the most rapidly growing sectors according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and medical coding and billing specifically is expected to experience new job growth of 13% by 2026. Career Step graduates have an edge in the job market because the hands-on, interactive nature of their training means they are ready to start working immediately upon graduation. In addition, graduates will benefit from Career Step’s partnership with RCM Health Care Services, a premier provider of staffing solutions for over 400 healthcare institutions.
