SPRINGFIELD, Mo., March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TrustHCS(SM), an HIM, compliance and revenue cycle consultancy firm for healthcare providers, announces the availability of its ICD-10 Training and Education Services. The program is available in an ongoing series of modules that tie to a hospital's three-four year strategic plan for ICD-10 transition, and is economically priced for any size organization. The announcement was made by Torrey Barnhouse, Chief Executive Officer.

"Based on best-of-breed educational curricula, the TrustHCS program is a combination of on-site and on-line that builds overtime to create proficiencies and maximize benefits of the transition," comments Barnhouse. The firm's program is the most comprehensive, over arching ICD-10 training curriculum in the industry and includes:

  • Guaranteed access to ICD-10 resources
  • A convenient single monthly price and multi-year partnership
  • On-demand, supplemental coding services
  • Telephone and web support via a coding compliance portal
  • DNFB assurance program to maintain cash flow throughout the transition

"Industry experts predict there will be a significant drop in productivity as organizations lead up to ICD-10," mentions Cathy Brownfield, RHIA, CCS, and Vice President of Operations for TrustHCS. Furthermore, revenue recognition is expected to lag for quite some time afterwards as providers adjust to new coding structures and finer documentation granularity. "Our services can minimize that drop and even fill in staffing to eliminate the issue," Barnhouse concludes. For additional information, providers should contact TrustHCS directly at: (417) 299-5069.
