Betsy Bailey, president of HIA, believes making educational programs, like HIAlearn, accessible to the masses will help benefit the overall Health Information Management (HIM) industry. “The need for quality coders has never been greater. One of the biggest challenges medical coders face today is staying up to date on the constantly changing coding guidelines,” says Bailey. “HIAlearn gives the experienced coder an easily accessible tool to assist in refining their skills and increasing the accuracy of their work.”
HIAlearn will also serve to guide and educate students in the coding industry and equip them with the knowledge to be successful.
“Our goal in launching this platform is two-fold – offer specific coding education topics for both the seasoned coder as well as students looking to gain a trusted resource in medical coding education,” says Pat Maccariella‑Hafey, executive director of education at HIA. “This platform offers invaluable information for coders while also addressing the most frequently asked coding questions we receive from both clients and our own team.”
