Summit Health (Chambersburg, Pa.), the non-profit parent organization of Chambersburg Hospital and Waynesboro Hospital, is implementing Reston, Va.-based

QuadraMed Corp.’s Quantim ICD-10 Coding Simulator to help coders prepare for the transition to ICD-10.

Quantim ICD-10 is a component of the ICD-10 Countdown Program, a solution that duplicates the ICD-10 coding environment for accelerated training and practice purposes, according to the company. The Countdown Program includes an avatar-based, e-Learning tutorial that provides real-world scenarios to help coders get up to speed on the application. The Simulator comes with embedded coding guidelines, ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS code books, and general equivalence mapping bi-directional translation capabilities, it says.

Summit Health is the south-central Pennsylvania region’s primary healthcare provider and largest non-governmental employer. Its services include family physicians, surgeons, specialists, diagnostic services, a women’s health center, a fitness center, and two hospitals.
