The Health Information Technology department at Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus is hosting a training in ICD-10-CM training on campus September 10, 2019.


Due to new industry standards some health information professionals require training in ICD-10-CM, which is a disease driven coding system used in skilled nursing facility reimbursements.


The purpose of this training is to understand and apply ICD-10-CM as applicable to the PDPM reimbursement.


Five continued education (CEU) hours for Arkansas license nursing home administrators have been approved by the Office of Long Term Care.


The ATU-Ozark HIT Department Chair, Bonnie Sher, and instructors, Brenda Huntsinger, and Constance Askins will conduct the training. Debbie Fort, the Administrator of the Alma Health and Rehabilitation will be a guest speaker as well.


ATU-Ozark’s HIT students will also be present to raise money for their scholarship program.
