VANCOUVER, Wash., Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- What's the ideal length of a medical coding training session for your clinical staff? The answer may surprise you.
4 hours? 5 hours? 8 hours? Nope. The answer is 10 to 20 minutes maximum.
When you spend too much time and cover too many topics, most adults, including doctors -- tend to tune out. The average adult has about a 10 to 20 minute attention span. Beyond that, information goes in one ear and out the other.
So when training your doctors you may find it helpful to break large amounts of information down into smaller chunks and only provide information relevant to the provider.
