Course in Medical Coding

Medical Coding

Course Overview

Medical coding is the transformation of healthcare diagnosis, procedures, medical services, and equipment into universal medical alphanumeric codes. The diagnoses and procedure codes are taken from medical record documentation, such as transcription of physician's notes, laboratory and radiologic results, etc. Medical coding professionals help to ensure that the codes are applied correctly during the medical billing process, which includes abstracting the information from documentation, assigning the appropriate codes and creating a claim to be paid by insurance carriers.
