CCO DRG Training & CHONC Courses

CCO DRG Training & CHONC Courses


Q: “Do you offer DRG training only?” A: No, not yet. It doesn’t mean that we
won’t in the future. We kind of are doing things by quarter, and so this year is kind
of full, our plate is full and our slate of what we’re going to be providing we’re
planning on bringing the CIC course and inpatient course, the compliance course and CDI (documentation
improvement). Those are our three, they are next up; but that might be in the near future.
Alicia: You have to let us know what you want so if you keep letting us know, then, definitely
it’s – Laureen: Which that’s another thing, that
new http://helpdesk.codingcertification.org area, is we have an area for you to tell us
what you want us to work on; so check that out. Q: “Does CCO offer CHONC courses?” A: That must be oncology. That is what I would
consider a Medical Specialty credential. We have not gotten into that yet. Again, we want
to. We’re going to be putting polls out and pulling from our community what people
want and we’re going to develop what’s the most popular. At this point, no, we don’t
have any medical specialties yet. Alicia: Another point there, could we create
a course like that real quick? Absolutely. But it’s not going to be the quality you
deserve, and so Laureen is making sure that we have a good coach, we vetted the experts
and everything. When we do roll something out, it’s going to be quality versus just
getting you some CEUs, it’s different. Laureen: We’re really undergoing some organizational
changes and restructuring and we’re having to come up with our mission statement and
what we really want is to do what we’re currently doing really well so that all the
students that are existing courses are just raving fans, like they just love the courses
and then we’ll add more and make sure that course has the same caliber of what people
are expecting from CCO now. And so, we’ll get there; but at this point, if you have
a question that we can answer in six or seven minutes we’ll do it on this webinar. If
it’s something you’d like us at least do a 90-minute webinar, we certainly can consider
that. So, give us your ideas on that, that Helpdesk area and you’ll it happen. Q: “Does CCO offer any emergency room (ED)
coding courses?”And injection/infusions done on facility the side (in ED)? A: Same thing for emergency room coding. Those
both would be really good 90-minute type webinar topics, so I would recommend that you put
them there and maybe, just in case, the individuals left, maybe someone from our Helpdesk team
could do that for them, put those topics on the list. But you can vote them up, so you
can look at the list of topics and if there’s something you really like, put a vote in,
and the more votes we get those are the ones that we’ll be doing next. It’s all about
popularity.
