This Certification course covers the modules 1,2&3.Module-1: Medical TerminologyMedical Terminology - Medicine Has a Language of Its Own - Current medical vocabulary includes terms built from Greek and Latin word parts, eponyms, acronyms, and terms from modern language - Medical terms are like individual jigsaw puzzles. They consist of (prefixes, combining forms, and suffixes) that make each term unique. - Once you understand the basic medical term structure and how these components fit together, you will be able to “build” almost any medical term. -Basic Elements of a Medical Word Word Root Combining Form Suffix PrefixModule-2: Anatomy & PhysiologyHuman Body systems – The Human body is bio-logical machine made of body systems; Group of Organs that work together to produce and sustain life - There are 10 systems, which describe about the body function -Musculoskeletal system -Cardiovascular system -Respiratory system -Integumentary system -Nervous system -Digestive system -Urinary system -Endocrine system -Lymphatic system -Reproductive systemModule-3: ICD 10 CMICD 10 CM (International classification of diseases & Signs and symptoms 10th revision clinical modification) Assigning codes for diseasesIntroduction to ICD -Infections and parasitic diseases -Neoplasm -Endocrine, nutritional, metabolic diseases  -Blood and blood forming organs  -Mental disorders  -Nervous system and sense organs -Circulatory system  -Respiratory system  -Digestive system  -Genitourinary system  -Complications of pregnancy and abortions  -Skin and subcutaneous   -Musculoskeletal and connective tissue   -Congenital anomalies   -Perinatal period conditions   -Signs and symptoms   -Injuries, poisoning and complications   -COVID 19What is medical coding?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 happens every time you see a healthcare provider. The healthcare provider reviews your complaint and medical history, makes an expert assessment of what’s wrong and how to treat you, and documents your visit. That documentation is not only the patient’s ongoing record, it’s how the healthcare provider gets paid.Why is medical coding needed?The healthcare revenue stream is based on the documentation of what was learned, decided, and performed.A patient's diagnosis, test results, and treatment must be documented, not only for reimbursement but to guarantee high quality care in future visits. A patient's personal health information follows them through subsequent complaints and treatments, and they must be easily understood. This is especially important considering the hundreds of millions of visits, procedures, and hospitalizations annually in the United States.The challenge, however, is that there are thousands of conditions, diseases, injuries, and causes of death. There are also thousands of services performed by providers and an equal number of injectable drugs and supplies to be tracked. Medical coding classifies these for easier reporting and tracking. And in healthcare, there are multiple descriptions, acronyms, names, and eponyms for each disease, procedure, and tool. Medical coding standardizes the language and presentation of all these elements so they can be more easily understood, tracked, and modified.This common language, mandated by the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), allows hospitals, providers, and payers to communicate easily and consistently. Nearly all private health information is kept digitally and rests on the codes being assigned.Types of codes usedMedical coding is performed all over the world, with most countries using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). ICD is maintained by the World Health Organization and modified by each member country to serve its needs. In the United States, there are six official HIPAA-mandated code sets serving different needs.ICD-10-CM (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition, Clinically Modified)ICD-10-CM includes codes for anything that can make you sick, hurt you, or kill you. The 69,000-code set is made up of codes for conditions and disease, poisons, neoplasms, injuries, causes of injuries, and activities being performed when the injuries were incurred. Codes are “smart codes” of up to seven alphanumeric characters that specifically describe the patient’s complaint.ICD-10-CM is used to establish medical necessity for services and for tracking. It also makes up the foundation of the MS-DRG system below.Where do medical coders work?The diversity of businesses and agencies employing medical coders opens myriad career opportunities. Besides health systems and hospitals, physician practices, and ambulatory surgery centers, coders are needed by:Urgent care clinicsSports medicine clinicsMental health practicesHospicesTelehealth providersCollection agenciesRisk adjustment vendorsInsurance companiesProfessional liability companiesFederal government agenciesInformation technology servicesLaw firmsDental officesDurable medical equipment and supply vendorsImaging centersPhysical therapy centersLong-term care facilitiesHome health agenciesConsulting firmsEHR software vendorsAccountable care organizationsWorkman’s compensation companiesState government agenciesCareer collegesMedical billing serviceMedical laboratoriesRehabilitation servicesClearinghousesCancer registriesHealthcare organizations occasionally hire remote coders to manage their medical coding online, making working from home a possibility. According to AAPC’s annual medical coding salary survey, more than one-third of AAPC-certified medical coders and billers work remotely.Some medical coders go on to teach at universities, colleges, and other medical coding training programs. Others choose to become their own boss, working as SMEs on a contractual basis.A SME, pronounced smee, is simply a subject matter expert. Becoming a SME is reserved for mid-career coding professionals who have worked in the industry long enough to have developed areas of expertise. Opportunities for SMEs in healthcare include working long- and short-term as:Training specialistsSoftware vendor consultantsCurriculum contributorsTrade journal contributorsBloggersPartners with high school healthcare organizationsTextbook writers, reviewers, and contributorsHealthcare consultants for a law firmInstructors/TutorsAuditorsAnalystsAccreditation organizationsExam writers and reviewers for medical coding certification companiesBoard members of healthcare-related companiesHow much do medical coders earn?Medical coding specialists make $27.91 per hour on average, or $58,055 annually, according to AAPC’s Annual Medical Coding Salary Survey. Not only does this wage exceed the median salary of all U.S. occupations, but it also ranges higher, depending on the type and location of the employer and on the coder’s credentials and experience.The average salary for Medical Coder is ₹47,415 per month in the India. The average additional cash compensation for a Medical Coder in the India is ₹25,784, with a range from ₹10,554 - ₹85,948. Salaries estimates are based on 1243 salaries submitted anonymously to Glassdoor by Medical Coder employees in India.
