Axxess offers training and software for ICD-10 coding

Axxess said it is offering in-person training to help home health organizations transition to the new ICD-10 medical code set, effective October 1, 2015.

In just over a month, home healthcare organizations, subject to HIPAA compliance, must begin using ICD-10-CM, causing one of the most extensive changes in the healthcare industry in the last few decades, according to Axxess.

“Every aspect of home health operations will be affected by the ICD-10 transition,” said John Olajide, President and CEO of Axxess. “To help ensure a smooth and successful transition, Axxess offers both authoritative education and ICD-10-compliant software solutions.”

ICD-10 seminars are currently available in Texas, Florida and California at Intermediate and Advanced levels. While attendees may register for seminars separately, it is recommended to attend both seminars consecutively for optimal educational benefit. Attendees will earn seven continuing education credits for each one-day seminar.

Dallas-based Axxess is a leading health care software company that provides cloud-based software to the home health care industry.
