Survey Shows ICD-10 Staff Training Needed, Though Most Have Not Started

A survey by Contexo Media found 63.8 percent of respondents had not started training staff on ICD-10 although 68.5 percent said their staff needs training in anatomy and physiology for the new coding system, according to a Contexo Media report.

Data from more than 1,000 responses showed that 52.6 percent of respondents do not have a trainer on staff and 62.8 percent have not had staff attend any ICD-10 seminars. However, only 31.5 percent of respondents said their staff does not need training to meet the new model's increased need for anatomy and physiology knowledge and only 30.8 percent said they will not train their physicians on ICD-10.

In a comparison of training methods, a similar percentage of respondents preferred webinars (58.2 percent), live training (57.3 percent) and eLearning (56.7 percent). Respondents were permitted to choose all training methods that applied.
