The Geneia Institute Caps Exciting Year with Free Course Offer

December 2, 2015

Harrisburg, PA – The Geneia Institute today announced it is offering a new, on-demand hierarchical condition category (HCC) coding course at no charge for the rest of this year.

“December is the season of giving, and in honor of the very successful year The Geneia Institute has had, we are giving all care team members, clinicians, and healthcare leaders free access to our new HCC coding course throughout this month,” said Patricia Ingerick, director of The Geneia Institute.

This year, The Geneia Institute:

  • Debuted an enhanced motivational interviewing course that couples in-person learning with intensive practice.
  • Introduced a robust learning management system and a complementary mobile app.
  • Created a series of on-demand, micro learning courses that incorporate the best practices in adult learning and deliver skills-based education in 8-15 minute segments.
  • Expanded our partnership with the Massachusetts Hospital Association and finalized a new strategic relationship with the leading distributor of healthcare workforce training.

The Geneia Institute’s HCC coding micro course follows ‘Kate,’ a new care team member, in her journey to understand the importance of HCC coding and the care team’s role in the process.  In the 10-minute micro course, Kate learns that every member of the care team participates in the HCC coding process, and ultimately in ensuring that the physician’s office or health plan receives sufficient reimbursement to cover the predicted costs of care.

The HCC coding course is part of The Geneia Institute’s family of micro learning courses, all of which provide on-demand training in 8-15 minute segments. “We understand that almost everyone who works in healthcare needs new skills but is busier than ever,” said Ingerick. “That’s why we created micro learning courses that can be taken individually or as a learning bundle.  For example, our on-demand version of the motivational interviewing program has four micro courses in the bundle: introduction to motivational interviewing, health literacy, OARS, and the TeachBack method.”
