Can’t wait to learn more about ICD-10? Want to get some basic training and experience in using ICD-10? Not enough money in the budget to go get training? Take a look at the World Health Organization’s website. They have designed a self-study course, which you can work on at your own pace. You can even pick which customization that suits you best:
- How to apply ICD codes and rules, have a medical background
- How to apply ICD codes and rules, have little or no medical background
- Have to fill in death certificates
- Want to know more about ICD, but will probably never have to assign codes
