This course will provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate skill in basic coding formatting and conventions using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System/Current Procedural Terminology (HCPCS/CPT) systems. These coding systems allow clinical language and descriptors to be translated into numeric data that are used in databases for fiscal reimbursement, quality of care assessment, utilization review, and other clinical and administrative applications. Coded data are used for processing claims in accordance with payer requirements.
