AHIMA also announced the introduction of a Training Pathways Guide that offers recommendations to users on the training curriculum ideally suited for their specific healthcare settings and roles.

AHIMA's ICD-10 online training courses are aimed at helping health information management (HIM) professionals with flexible training options for in-depth training of coders and other healthcare professionals in the acute care setting, as well as specialty settings such as home health, long-term care and physician practice. Modular, convenient and self-paced, AHIMA says its coding addresses the full range of individual chapters in ICD-10 CM and the root operations in ICD-10 PCS.

The new online program provides an alternative choice to AHIMA's instructor-led ICD-10 Training Academies, reflecting the organization's goal to provide education in a variety of methods to match the different cost, time, and learning-style needs of coders.
