Although AIS 2015 has been released, there are no immediate plans to implement this revision in the registry software. Please be patient as it takes a tremendous amount of time and effort to ensure a successful transition. PTSF staff will communicate details regarding the implementation of AIS 2015 with an adequate amount of time for preparations and training. AAAM is currently offering AIS08 and AIS15 coding courses. If you have not yet taken the AIS coding course, it is up to you as to which course you would like to complete. Students who have taken the AIS08 coding course after July 1, 2014, will be eligible to take the AIS15 Update Course. This 4-hour Online course will describe the major updates between AIS08 and AIS15. For more information on the release of AIS 2015, visit https://www.aaam.org/ais-2015-released/.
