“Coders can take external courses in anatomy and physiology or bone up on the subject using an up-to-date textbook,” says Buckholtz. “Whichever method you choose, make sure to pay for training to retain coders: Once the ICD-10 implementation date rolls around, coders will be in short supply and you want to build loyalty before then.”
