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 code.
The process of availing medical services from an institution involves the doctor, the patient and the institution. Every time a patient receives professional health care in a physician’s office, hospital outpatient facility or ambulatory surgical center (ASC), the institution must document the services provided in a medical record.

The services availed have to be coded for processing of claims and statistical analysis
