Canadian Training?

  1. Question Canadian Training?
    Medical Coding Books
    We would like to send a representative from our organization to Canada to be immersed in their 1CD-10 system (recognizing there are differences between US & Canadian ICD-10) Is anyone aware of Canadian health facilities that would accept an intern for this purpose or of any Canadian entities that can share their actual ICD-10 implementation and current ICD-10 experiences?

    Why not save that money and look to AHA for assistance with I-10 implementation?

    Why go to the AHA? The AAPC has a great curriculum. There is no need to go elsewhere.

    This is true regarding AAPC. But, it appears the questioner is looking for "emersion" and extended internship/training. AHA has one of the leading authorities on I-10, Nelly Leon-Chissen. My thoughts are that AHA is doing a great amount of work in this arena and has conducted studies, comparisons, etc on the actual application of I-10 codes. That's why it makes sense to me to recommend it.

    Remember too that the US is the only country that will use ICD 10 PCS. Stick with AAPC for training fro ICD 10 CM and ICD 10 PCS!!.
