St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 03, 2012

Gateway EDI, one of the fastest-growing electronic data interchange providers in the nation will continue its ICD-10 educational outreach with AAPC, the premier training and credentialing organization in the medical coding industry, by hosting a second webinar on March 13, 2012 at 12 p.m. (CST).

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently confirmed they will initiate a process to postpone the date by which certain health care entities have to comply with ICD-10, but many industry associations have cautioned that practices should not delay preparations.

As we all learned from the 5010 transition, its never too early to start preparing and there is a definite need for more education on the topic. We received nearly 400 questions from attendees during our first webinar, said Shelly Guffey, manager of premier accounts and vendor partners, Gateway EDI. The transition to ICD-10 is a major undertaking and there is still a lot of confusion about what ICD-10 is, why we have to make the switch, and what changes practices will have to adopt internally to be compliant.

The March 13 webinar follows the success of the first ICD-10 webinar in January, which drew more than 1,000 participants.

Peggy Stilley, AAPC Physician Services Director of Audit Services has more than 30 years experience in the industry and will present process improvements and training solutions during the webinar.

We must make sure facilities and providers dont stop working on their ICD-10 implementation, Stilley said. ICD-10 requires a major change in the documentation habits for most providers. So, they need to take the extra time they now have available to do more in-depth analysis of how their practice will be impacted.

Attendees can receive one continuing education unit (CEU) credit and will learn:
