Hospital Staff Education
NHRMC and Pender Memorial Hospital employees play an important role in ensuring a successful transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Our physicians also play an important role in this initiative, and it will be extremely important for our Medical Staff to document to the appropriate level of specificity in order to capture the accurate ICD-10 codes.
Because successful implementation will require a team effort, it is important for you to familiarize yourselves with ICD-10, its impact and timing.
You are encouraged to use the informational links provided below to help you and your staff understand available education opportunities being offered for ICD-10.
Education and Training Information
The ICD-10 Project Team will continue to support you through a structured communications and awareness campaign along with providing greater details about training requirements, within the appropriate timeframes.
All those determined to be impacted by ICD-10 will be automatically signed up for mandatory online ICD-10 education.
Management, Director and Senior Leadership education was completed in December. Staff education will begin in April and is expected to be completed in September.
