  1. Hello,
    I am trying to meet the CEU requirement for ICD-10 to renew my RHIT credential.
    As I looked at the list of articles online, when I pulled one article at a time,
    I did not see: how many CEUs would I earn and which domain it was.

    I also didn’t realize that coding would fall under Clinical Data Management.
    So I only need 3 to go.

    Unless I actually pulled up the Journal of AHIMA magazine online, I’d see the
    real article AND the yellow bar at the end telling me CEU and Domain.
    I think it should also be online before I select and pay for it without knowing
    what I’m getting.
