HIT203 & HIT205
International Classification of Diseases
Build your ability to accurately dissect and code operative reports using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). You will also learn about anatomy and code structure for body systems, health records, manual and computerized coding methods and references. You’ll have hands-on opportunities to use coding manuals and software tools to become comfortable with sequencing diagnoses and procedures. Coding ethics, data quality and application of coding principles to electronic record systems are also covered.
HIT211 & HIT213
Current Procedural Terminology Coding with Lab
Develop your knowledge of clinical classification systems through current procedural terminology (CPT). Practice using CPT to assign procedure codes and apply guidelines for assigning evaluation and management (E/M) codes and modifiers to typical case examples. Also covered are healthcare common procedure coding system (HCPCS) codes and the application of coding principles to an electronic record system.
