MASSACHUSETTS – January 11, 2012 – Another major healthcare organization has joined Barry Libman Inc.’s medical coders affiliate program.

The organization, NHHIMA (New Hampshire Health Information Management Association), is the fourth healthcare membership organization to partner with Barry Libman Inc. to offer the online course, Anatomy & Physiology for Coders to its’ members.

Recently, Connecticut’s CTHIMA (CT Health Information Management Association), Rhode Island’s RIHIMA (Rhode Island Health Information Management Association), and Massachusetts’ MAHIMA (MA Health Information Management Association) joined the affiliate program.

 “It is great to partner with Barry Libman Inc. to distribute this top quality course,” said Winnona Vachon, NHHIMA’s President. “The advent of ICD-10 is creating many challenges for our members and our association.  This affiliation with Barry Libman Inc. is an opportunity to provide support to our members while earning needed revenue for our state association.”

Barry Libman Inc.’s Anatomy & Physiology for Coders affiliate program provides an annuity revenue stream which includes everything associations need to promote the course to their members. When someone signs up for the course, affiliates automatically receive a commission. Affiliates can use the program toaugment existing on-premise seminars, webinars and audio training programs.

Anatomy & Physiology for Coders was developed to educate medical record coders preparing for transition to ICD-10-CM and -PCS. The 12-week course provides a comprehensive and complete review of the major body systems, as well as coverage of common diseases and disorders, frequently prescribed drugs, and common laboratory tests.

The course uses the textbook and supplemental CD, Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology by Donald Rizzo. Also included are lesson notes, multi-media videos, interactive educational games, and full-color anatomical drawings to amplify course content. Multiple quizzes and comprehensive weekly assessments assure mastery of the material.

As an online course, students can access Anatomy & Physiology for Coders 24/7.
