ICD-10 Training message from Dr. Lindsey

Please read this important message from Dr. Lindsey regarding ICD-10 training.

Dear Medical Staff,

I sent the message copied below in November and December. Many thanks to those (30% of the medical staff) have completed the training. If you have completed the training, stop reading now. If you have not completed the training, please read the rest of this message and complete the training as soon as possible. It is very important to complete ICD-10 training before beginning Epic training.

A small number of providers have incorrect specialty courses assigned in LMS. If you have an incorrect course assigned for your specialty, contact lmshelp@unch.unc.edu to have the correct specialty course assigned. 

I greatly appreciate your help.

ICD-10 Training - Action Required

On Oct. 1, 2014, ICD-10 will become the exclusive system used for coding diagnoses and procedures throughout the United States. Publicly reported quality and safety measures, including those attributed to individual providers, will be based on ICD-10 codes. In addition, all reimbursement will be based on ICD-10 codes.  

Epic@UNC will use ICD-10 from our April 4 go-live, and many ICD-10 issues will be incorporated into Epic@UNC training for medical staff. However, Epic@UNC training will not address the conceptual changes in ICD-10 that will impact all medical staff. To cover that material, UNC Health Care is providing ICD-10 training developed by Precyse Solutions. We have narrowed this training down to approximately two hours (in comparison to the 12+ hours some institutions require) and you are required to complete it by Jan. 15, 2014, before Epic@UNC training begins. Fortunately, 1.5 hours of Category 1 CME is available for completion of these courses. 

You can access your ICD-10 training through LMS via Citrix by: 

  • Visiting this link and logging-in with your UNC Health Care Domain account (the same you use for IMPAX, Web1000, Sovera, etc.).
  • Then, click on the LMS icon. You WILL have to log in to LMS (using the same UNC Health Care domain credentials again). We realize this second login seems redundant, but we have found that using Citrix to access LMS significantly reduces page load times and improves the user experience. 
  • Once in LMS, your ICD-10 training is listed in the lower-center portion of the screen under your “To-Do” list. Simply click “Start” to take your assigned courses.

If you cannot login to LMS, contact the ISD Help Desk at helpdesk@unch.unc.edu or 919-966-5647. If you have incorrect courses assigned for your specialty, contact lmshelp@unch.unc.edu to have the correct specialty course assigned.

Thank you for completing the training, which will help prepare you for both ICD-10 and Epic@UNC Training. 

Best regards,
