Tech firm launches contest to find the best ICD-10 coders

Central Learning will give $5,000 for the inpatient coder with highest average accuracy and productivity scores across 10 inpatient cases.

Central Learning is running an online ICD-10 coding contest that promises $5,000 to three medical coders. The "Code your way to $5K" contest is open to U.S. medical coders and has three divisions:

- $5,000 for the inpatient coder with highest average accuracy and productivity scores across 10 inpatient cases.

- $5,000 for the emergency department coder with highest average accuracy and productivity scores across 30 outpatient cases.

- $5,000 for the ambulatory surgery coder with highest average accuracy and productivity scores across 30 outpatient cases.

[Also: ICD-10 grace period will end on October 1, CMS says]

The accuracy and productivity scores is calculated using Central Learning's systems.

The deadline to enter is Sept. 15 but contestants have until Oct. 1 to complete the contest cases.

Coding managers can register their teams and get reports on how each individual scored -- giving them a snapshot of coding performance. This contest looks like a huge demonstration of how Central Learning's platform works.
