HIAlearn – Coding Staff Development & Training
Unmatched industry expertise

Ensuring the educational development of your coding staff is of utmost importance. Whether you need additional focused education based on review findings or the tools to foster ongoing coder development, HIA has you covered with the latest coding updates and regulatory changes. Much of our material is approved by AHIMA and/or AAPC for CEUs. View our extensive HIAlearn library here.

HIAlearn Offerings
Education may take many avenues, including on-site visits, audio recordings and online education modules. Training can consist of one-on-one, group sessions or self-paced. Programs can be tailored to fit any time frame, from a few hours to monthly training and monitoring of new coding staff. We utilize a Learning Management System (LMS) to house coding education sessions. Individual participants are provided a username/password to access the LMS from a designated website.
  Education Counts
Our 70-years of combined teaching experience has taught us that academic instruction fused with practical application creates a comprehensive learning experience that benefits our team and yours.

Coding Tip: Hypercoagulable States

Hypercoagulable states are blood disorders that increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis or embolic disease. The state is either inherited or acquired. About 80% of patients with blood clots have been found to have either an inherited or acquired clotting disorder. These blood clots can be lethal and some require life-long therapy. Hypercoagulable state is also known as thrombophilia.
