We worked with three CCS and/or RHIT
trained coders who were experienced with ICD-10-CM coding to develop a crosswalk between each QSRS-identified event and the ICD-10-CM code or codes that would be associated with that event.
(27-29) These concerns were not confirmed in our study, as the off-center null position did not affect our HIT and rHIT
are health information technicians who ensure the quality of medical records by verifying their completeness, accuracy, and proper entry into computer systems.
Different strategies for accomplishing this goal included surveying recent ME graduates, collecting student materials in portfolios, surveying industries that hired ME students from RHIT
, analyzing the results from standardized tests such as the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, and using data collected by RHIT
's Office of Research, Planning, and Assessment.
The ICD-10 FastTrack program was developed in collaboration with Ann Zeisset, RHIT
, CCS, CCS-P, a coding and HIM educator who specializes in ICD-10-CM/PCS content development and serves as faculty for the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) ICD-10-CM/PCS Academies, and Gail Smith, MA, RHIA, CCS-P, an HIM professional and educator who has written numerous coding publications and served as a coding consultant and educator for the American Medical Association (AMA) for a number of years.
Co-authors Donna Avila-Weil, RHIT
and Rhonda Regan, CCS, CCS-P combine their expertise in the updated second edition of Independent Medical Coding: The Comprehensive Guidebook for Career Success as a Medical Coder.
In the development of the Professional Medical Coding and Billing program, Career Step partnered with Ann Zeisset, RHIT
, CCS, CCS-P, and Gail Smith, MA, RHIA, CCS-P.
