A Guided Approach to Intermediate and Advanced Coding
Guided Approach to Intermediate and Advanced Coding is a one-of-a-kind book that moves beyond basic coding to the advanced skills that get job candidates hired. Using real medical documentation, students learn key parts of the medical record, how to analyze records, what to code, what not to code, and the rationale behind these decisions. Practice exercises introduce students to different coding settings (physician office, hospital inpatient, hospital outpatient) and leveled cases build analytic skills. Covering ICD-9 and ICD-10 coding sets, the text bridges the gap between beginning and intermediate/advanced level coding so students are more prepared for the real world.
