Continuing medical education (CME) credits are available to physicians who complete the modules, and anyone who finishes them can receive a certificate of completion.

The videos, ICD-10: A Guide for Small and Medium Practices and ICD-10: A Guide for Large Practices, feature Daniel J. Duvall, MD, MBA, medical officer with the Hospital and Ambulatory Policy Group at CMS, describe:
- Global differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10;
- How ICD-10 will have different impacts on practices of different sizes; and
- Basic transition planning steps and resources.
In the article Transition to ICD-10: Getting Started, Joseph Nichols, MD, of Health Data Consulting, covers documentation improvements, the coder-clinician relationship, training, working with vendors and payers, search tools, and resources.
