  • 1.  ICD-10 Training Academy 2.0 - Materials not available???

    Posted 10 days ago
    Hello,

    Has anyone tried accessing the ICD-10 training materials in AHIMA Academy? I have registered (and successfully paid) for the ICD-10 Training Academy 2.0. Although the emails say the training materials are available as soon as payment is made, ICD-10 Training is not listed in the Academy. Yes, have removed the cookie blocker and sill no ICD-10 Training Materials.

    Are the Training Materials for "ICD-10 Training Academy 2.0" available?

    Thanks for your help,
    Famey Lockwood

    Hello Famey,

    The training materials are not available yet. You should receive them in mid-September.

    Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any additional questions at Melanie.endicott@ahima.org.

    Thank you Melanie for the updated information on ICD-10 Academy 2.0.

    Would you please refund my money until the Training Materials are available? Please refund at No Cost to me. I will purchase ICD-10 Academy 2.0 when the Training Materials are available. I purchased early to have the opportunity to prepare for the Academy, based on my work schedule.

    It is "Not Right" for AHIMA  to say the Training Materials are available "at time of purchase" when in fact, the Training Materials are not ready for another month. AHIMA, you have taken my money and not delivered or, complied with your part of the offer.

    Thank you Melanie and Lorraine for the feedback. Was having "a moment" when I wrote the previous note - Yes, it would be nice if we were all perfect all-the-time, but reality is, we are not. And, AHIMA, has shared that the organization is in "transition" to a new and better AHIMA for all of us.

    The first AHIMA Academy I attended for ICD-10 gave me the knowledge to help organization in the transition to ICD-10, mostly to lead the mapping of ICD-9 to ICD-10. I look forward to ICD-10/PCS TRAINER ACADEMY 2.0 and especially, ICD-11. Might we create the strategy to lead the U.S. to "first implementer?"

    Thanks,
    Famey

    Hi Famey,

    Thank you for your response. I'm happy to hear that the original ICD-10 Trainer Academy helped you transition your organization to ICD-10. The ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer Academy 2.0 will have some of the similar content as the original Academies (CM/PCS guidelines and cases), but there will also be a section on ICD-11 and other opportunities for coding professionals, such as mapping, auditing, and CDI.

    Since you have already attended an Academy, keep in mind that there will be an option for trainers who've let their designation lapse to reinstate for $450. This option will be available in October 2019. This reinstatement course will include the new content from 2.0 and an assessment. Those passing the assessment will have their trainer designation reinstated.

    Please reach out to me at melanie.endicott@ahima.org if you have additional questions.
