The Disarray of Healthcare: Why Elite CEUs Matter

Continuing education of healthcare professionals is absolutely essential!

Why Elite CEUs MatterWith accelerating advances in technology, health providers must maintain and improve their knowledge and skills throughout their career to provide safe and effective patient care. Yet, continuing education in the healthcare field is currently in a state of disarray. According to research, two fundamental problems exist:

1.) Many accrediting CE organizations do not promote teamwork within a healthcare facility. Inter-professional collaboration, however, is key to high-quality care.[1] To improve the performance of health systems, employers should focus on consistent CEU options for their entire team. For example, Sally, P.T. attends a CE conference in Phoenix while John, P.T. attends a separate CE conference in Miami. Both conferences address similar topics, but the material presented is somewhat contradictory. Thus, Sally, P.T. and John, P.T. return to their facility providing inconsistent patient care.

2.) Sometimes, there are biases with commercial interests who fund continuing education courses. Unfortunately, this blatant bias can result in off-label and poorly-researched use of specific products or therapies. However, increasing industry restrictions have helped reduce commercial involvement (pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers) in accredited CE activities.[2]

To top it off, health professionals often worry about finding the time to obtain their required continuing education credits with an already busy, stressful workload. But despite all of these problems, CEUs are critically important!

Research-based continuing education is essential to prudent patient care and improved patient outcomes.

If you’re looking for unbiased, elite CEUs for you or your staff, CEU360 can help. We provide over 650 hours of reliable, consistent, research-based courses presented by distinguished experts:

ICD-10 Training Online

ICD-10 Training OnlineICD-10 stands for International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition. ICD is the international standard tool for classifying medical conditions into codes. This allows for analysis of the general health situation of population groups, including incidence and prevalence of diseases and health problems as well as mortality statistics. It is also utilized for reimbursement and resource allocation.

There is an ongoing revision process for ICD. ICD-10 was endorsed by the 43rd World Health Assembly in May 1990 and came into use in the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1994. According to the United States CDC:

The Tenth Revision (ICD-10) differs from the Ninth Revision (ICD-9) in several ways although the overall content is similar: First, ICD-10 is printed in a three-volume set compared with ICD-9’s two-volume set. Second, ICD-10 has alphanumeric categories rather than numeric categories. Third, some chapters have been rearranged, some titles have changed, and conditions have been regrouped. Fourth, ICD-10 has almost twice as many categories as ICD-9. Fifth, some fairly minor changes have been made in the coding rules for mortality.

ICD-11 is scheduled for release in 2017.

The United States’ Implementation of ICD-10 on October 1, 2015

ICD-10 is currently used in almost every country in the world except the United States. When we hear “ICD-10” in the United States, it usually refers to the U.S. clinical modification of ICD-10: ICD-10-CM. Another designation, ICD-10-PCS, for “procedural coding system,” will also be adopted in the United States. ICD-10-PCS will replace Volume 3 of ICD-9-CM as the inpatient procedural coding system. The final rule stated that CPT® would remain the coding system for physician services.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a rule on July 31, 2014, that ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS will be implemented into the HIPAA mandated code set on October 1, 2015.

ICD-10 Training Online

If your healthcare program is covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), then transitioning to ICD-10 code sets is mandatory. But, there’s more to ICD-10 than just learning a new code set and upgrading your facility’s software. The transition will affect every aspect of your healthcare practice, especially reimbursement policies and procedures. The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 will require a significant effort to implement. Which means… the time for ICD-10 implementation training should begin now!
