Medical Coding Online Course

What is Medical Coding

ICD is the common language that compiles, reports, and uses health care information. ICD-10 is the 10th revision/update of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems.

Medical Coding Specialists work on-site for physicians, clinics, hospitals and other healthcare facilities and from home for a variety of HIM companies. They work to correctly code healthcare records for reimbursement, classification, planning and research. This involves learning many codes, each one representing a symptom, medication, diagnosis and procedure. The health care industry depends on skilled, highly qualified Medical Coding Specialists to accurately record, register, and track each patient’s account, so it is critical that medical coding professionals receive training and preparation to be successful in their career.
