Advanced Medical Coding Training Program

Training Description:

This program comprises of two separate training programs; Advanced medical coding training and Cancer registry training.

This advanced ICD medical coding training is designed to teach the fundamentals of medical coding and to advance coding skills by reviewing clinical concepts of commonly treated conditions to help readily assign the correct codes and efficiently work with clinician. This training helps establish careers in a financially rewarding field because successful medical coding requires that a patient’s diagnosis justifies the service or procedure the provider performed. The data extracted from coding is used for many purposes including reimbursement and quality and population health reporting.

Medical Coding:

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 codes translate that documentation into standardized codes:

  • Patient’s diagnosis
  • Medical necessity for treatments, services, or supplies the patient received
  • Treatments, services, and supplies provided to the patient
  • Any unusual circumstances or medical conditions that affected those treatments and services

Medical coding is performed all over the world, with most countries using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), the common system of codes that classifies every disease or health problem. ICD is maintained by the World Health Organization and modified by each member country to serve its needs. ICD has been updated periodically to reflect new discoveries in epidemiology and changes in medical understanding of the disease. The currently used ICD is its 10th revision.

Coding professionals review and assign International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) and International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-PCS) codes to inpatient hospital records.

This course features practical coding exercises to enhance your skills and validates proficiency in the correct application of medical codes in an inpatient hospital or facility as per international standards.
