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.

“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.
