The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) in Chicago has developed a Web-based program to educate coders. "Coding Assessment and Training Solutions" provides an opportunity to assess coders’ skills and knowledge and to keep abreast of the latest coding practices and policies. The program allows organizations to validate the coding skills of staff members and to discover where improvement is needed.
The initial phase of the interactive program addresses the area of assessment. This portion provides resources to assess and validate individual coding skills and identify areas requiring improvement. The results of the testing allow organizations to assess their need for ongoing and future coding training. After assessing knowledge in such areas as coding principles, coding guidelines, document analysis, problem solving, and data management skills, training needs may be outlined.
