Medical coding certifications from AAPC (American Academy of Professional Coders) or AHIMA (American Health Information Management Association) are the gold standard in the healthcare industry. These certifications are internationally recognized by employers, physician societies, and government organizations.
CHISS offers medical coding training at our centers in Trivandrum, Kochi( VPS Lakeshore), Thrissur and Kozhikode (Calicut) locations. Medical coding is the transformation of healthcare diagnosis, procedures, medical services, and equipment into universal medical alphanumeric codes. The diagnoses and procedure codes are taken from medical record documentation, such as transcription of physician's notes, laboratory and radiologic results, etc. Medical coding professionals help ensure the codes are applied correctly during the medical billing process, which includes abstracting the information from documentation, assigning the appropriate codes, and creating a claim to be paid by insurance carriers.
Medical coding careers are getting a huge amount of well-deserved attention. Our training experts are credentialed and successful coders and they know how to prepare our students to get the valuable credentials. The key to having a marketable medical coding career is by having the right coding credentials with right training and coding practices.
