In the following video, I sit down with Garry Huff, MD, CEO and President of Huff DRG Review Services to talk about their approach to training doctors on ICD-10. As a doctor he’s focused on all the messages that a doctor wants to hear:

  • A doctor training a doctor on ICD-10
  • Short, sweet, and focused ICD-10 training without the fluff they already know

Hear about Huff DRG Review Services unique approach to training doctors for ICD-10:

Right as the AHIMA exhibit hall was closing (literally they turned out the lights on us), I pulled out my video camera and got the following interview with Garry Huff, MD, CEO and President of Huff DRG Review Services. In the video, Dr. Huff addresses the challenge of training doctors on ICD-10. As a doctor, he offers a unique perspective on what works and what doesn’t work when training doctors on ICD-10. Plus, he looks at the timeline organizations should plan for training doctors on ICD-10.

I really love Dr. Huff’s approach to teaching doctors ICD-10. They realize that doctors have limited time and attention span. They have doctors from a specific specialty training that specialty. They do a gap analysis on the training needs so they can focus that training on what each specific provider needs to learn.

Dr. Huff also suggested that a doctor can be trained on ICD-10 with this type of specialty and provider specific training in 30 minutes to an hour. Is this enough time to train doctors on ICD-10?
