The purpose of this assessment is to assist the end user in
identifying strengths and weaknesses in this classification system and to ensure
accurate code assignment in ICD-10-CM.
As part of AHIMA’s Proficiency
Assessment program, this 73-question assessment was developed for use when a
general idea of a coding professional’s competence is needed, without specific
emphasis on selective topics, such as specific disease processes.
The questions in this assessment
are categorized at intermediate or advanced coding practice levels. Intermediate
questions assess application of basic coding skills to actual health record
information, while advanced questions assess interpretation, analysis, and
synthesis of the entire health information data spectrum impacted by code
selection and code assignment. Questions are related to the ICD-10-CM coding
conventions and guidelines.
Item format is multiple-choice
with a question and four possible answers. While taking this assessment, you
must have access to current codes via a codebook or an encoder. Upon completion,
you'll be provided with your score as well as feedback on each question. Be sure
to scroll down to the bottom of the feedback page to print your results so that
you can review them later.
