HCPro relaunches coder education site with new features for medical coders

Press Releases, November 15, 2010

HCPro, Inc., a leader in medical coder education and training, announces a re-launch of its popular JustCoding continuing education web site with a new design and new features that build coding skills while preparing professionals for the coming changes in the medical coding industry.

"Every week, thousands of coding professionals turn to JustCoding to help them keep their skills sharp, test their coding knowledge, and stay abreast of coding changes and guidelines," said Ilene MacDonald, Executive Editor of JustCoding. "Now, with ICD-10 in the wings, JustCoding is an even more important partner for advanced training and education."

The site is launching its major redesign along with new features for members, including the addition of continuing education (CE) credits from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) as well as a Webcast library which offers CE credits from the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC).

HCPro will be offering JustCoding members far more opportunities to earn CE credits from both organizations to satisfy recertification requirements, while the cost of both basic and Platinum JustCoding memberships remain unchanged.

“We heard from customers that high-quality continuing education is more important than ever with ICD-10 on the horizon, but their budgets continue to be squeezed,” says MacDonald. “It was crucial that we continue to provide the best education at a reasonable price, while diversifying our delivery platforms to meet a wide range of adult learning styles.”

The redesigned site debuts November 15 and offers members enhanced navigation tools, the new Webcast series, a section devoted exclusively to ICD-10-, and a job posting board. Visitors can find more information and register for free trials of the site at www.justcoding.com.
