Show Notes

Central Learning is a web-based coding assessment and education application. Since 2016, the company has conducted an annual national coding review to measure ICD-10 coding accuracy and production.  

The initial intent was to evaluate how coding accuracy and production fared using ICD-10, as compared to ICD-9. The common industry accuracy benchmark under ICD-9 was 95 percent.  

The findings in 2018 indicated that the industry at large still lags far behind past expectations. In addition, as production under ICD-10 increases, accuracy decreases. Reporting our lead story during the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be Holly Louie, past president of the Healthcare Business and Management Association (HBMA) and guest co-host.
