Quality healthcare information starts with coding accuracy. If you want to improve your coding skills and knowledge, this is the program for you. Designed to assist healthcare professionals with coding advanced cases in CPT, ICD-10-CM, and ICD-10-PCS coding systems, this workshop allows participants to choose the classification system(s) meeting their training needs and create their own one- to four-day training schedule. Each workshop is facilitated by an expert coding faculty member who walks participants through the decision process of identifying correct codes with actual patient health records. Crack the Code: Advanced Coding Workshops provides the flexibility to learn about what is most relevant to each participant's coding focus: CPT, ICD-10-CM, or ICD-10-PCS. At the conclusion of the workshop(s), participants have gained valuable skills to not only improve job performance but also enhance organizational operations.Create more efficiency within your team, raise the standard of healthcare information quality, and assist your organization in meeting industry requirements. It all starts with you, and it all starts here in the coding workshops.

“I became a CDI specialist after 30 plus years of nursing. I have learned coding only through my CDI training over the past 4 years. When I asked how I could become more self-sufficient with coding it was suggested that I attend the crack the code workshop. At first I was nervous wondering if I would be able to keep up without formal in class coding education. I will say it was the best decision I made. Maria was wonderful. After expressing my concerns she reassured me that I would be fine and that she would help in any way she could and she was right. I was fine and she was there every step of the way whenever I needed anything. She even took time during breaks to see how I was doing.
Maria presented the information in a way that no matter what coding background you came with you were able to understand and follow at the pace she presented. Maria was very flexible and accommodating to the suggestions of the group. I left each day excited about the next day. I would and have recommended this workshop to others I work with.”
— Irene Lovano, RN, CCDS from Akron, Ohio
“I have been a coder for over 13 years and worked in all areas of coding. I took this workshop to practice advance coding skills and was pleased that the workshop offered an array of case scenario's. The workshop provided the opportunity to engage the instructor and listen to questions and feedback from other coding professionals. I want to thank you so much for the fabulous ICD10CM & ICD10PCS presentation that Maria Ward provided. It was very informative, and I look forward to attending the next one.”
— April Batten, CCS, North Carolina,
on AHIMA's presentation for the
ICD10CM & ICD10PCS Crack the Codes workshop.
I would also like to reiterate that the actual case studies from the workshop provided vital information and guidance that will help me achieve my goals and has inspired me to make PCS my personal baby as well. You are an amazing instructor with a teaching strategy that helps visually understand the procedures.
— Mary A Bowlan, CCS, Arkansas
