ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Axea Solutions, a revenue cycle services and technology company for the healthcare industry, today announced the launch of Axea Academy, an enhanced learning management platform created to help clinical and coding professionals gain expertise in ICD-10, CPT, and E&M medical coding.
The revenue cycle of every healthcare organization depends on the quality and accuracy of its diagnosis and procedural coding. Online training courses and interactive learning tools in Axea Academy foster enhanced knowledge, quality, and productivity across coding and clinical teams, helping hospitals, clinics, and physician practices generate accurate reimbursement, comply with rigorous coding and billing requirements, and avoid financial penalties.
"Axea Academy is a dream platform for coding managers and coders alike," said Yvette Brock, Director of Coding Operations, Revenue Cycle Services for Piedmont Health. "From cross training and onboarding new employees to reinforcing knowledge and assessing both team and individual achievement, it's easy to use, incorporates verbal, written, and tactical facets of learning, and provides a real education that goes well beyond simply reading course materials."
Axea Academy replaces Axea Knowledge Base, the company's earlier offering, and provides a host of user-friendly features that support an efficient, enjoyable learning process, including:
- Self-paced lessons that are user friendly and easy to navigate,
- Content developed and delivered by experienced, credentialed instructors,
- An easy-to-complete education track for annual regulation updates,
- A dashboard view enabling users to track progress through each phase of a course, and
- A library of standard reports along with the ability to tailor reports using custom filters.
"The key to continually improving coding knowledge and supporting a healthy revenue cycle begins with interactive, easy-to-use coding training that is structured to support learner success," said Susan Gatehouse, Axea Solutions CEO. "We are honored that Axea Academy has been selected by organizations of all sizes, from individual hospitals and clinics to large academic integrated delivery health networks, as their coding training platform of choice."
Axea Academy provides support for evaluating coding and auditing candidates, training new coders, and enhancing the skills of seasoned coders. The system's flexibility has proven to be invaluable for cross training specialty-specific coders.
The training platform offers three distinct learning tracks tailored to a variety of roles: Axea Apprentice for coding students, Axea Aptitude for current coding, audit and clinical professionals, and Axea Adapt for clinical professionals who wish to transition to a medical coding role.
