Description:

Medical coding is a specialized profession within the wider field of healthcare administration. Professional medical coders review the documentation contained in patients’ medical records, then they translate the written documentation into universally accepted, industry-standard medical codes. These codes are used to submit claims to third party payers, and to gather statistical information, both by tracking incidents of specific diseases, and by discerning developing trends in treatment protocols. Accurate medical coding is essential to the healthcare industry.

Prospects:

After the course, students can work for BPO companies in India to whom US healthcare organizations outsource the coding work. They can also find employment in hospitals, work from home or freelance directly under US companies.
