What is a webinar? A webinar contains both audio that you listen to and slides that you view. Based on this a webinar is a power point presentation with audio added. There are three webinars in the medical coding and billing program. Prior to these being imbedded in the program as webinars these were performed over the phone as consultations. In order to allow all of our student’s access to these webinars we included them in the program. The webinars contain the same information that was covered in the consultations. The following are the names, locations, and the information covered in each of these webinars.
Orientation Webinar – This webinar is located Program Orientation module on page 20. This webinar contains tips to help you be successful in completing the medical coding and billing program.
Medical Coding Webinar – This webinar is located on the first page of the Diagnostic Coding with ICD-9-CM Block 1 module. This webinar contains advice on how to be successful in the coding modules.
Practicum Webinar – This webinar is located on the first page of the Skill Building for Outpatient Coding module. This webinar contains advice on how to be successful in the practicum modules. It also contains information about how to be successful on the final exam and the certification exam.
The main purpose of including these in the program is to give all students access to this information. When these were performed as consultations over the phone not all students received this information. This is because it was left up to the student to decide if they wanted to participate in the consultations or not. Another advantage of including them in the program is that you can listen to these webinars multiple times if you want too.
When you get to these specific locations in the program we encourage you to take the time to listen to each of these webinars. It may take several times listening to them to fully understand and apply the information presented.
