The practice of applying universal alphanumeric codes to the many aspects of healthcare that have been provided, such as medical diagnosis, procedures, Services, and equipment provided, is referred to as medical coding. When assigning diagnostic and treatment codes to a patient, a medical coder will use the patient's medical record, which includes documents such as a physician's notes, laboratory reports, and service lists, as their primary source. The process of medical coding begins with the abstraction of medical information from the documentation that is readily available, continues with the assignment of the appropriate diagnosis and procedure codes, and concludes with the facilitation of the process of creating a claim that can be sent to payers.
It is essential to have medical coding of a high quality in order to receive appropriate reimbursements. Errors in medical coding can be expensive and lead to claim denials. Furthermore, they can create unjustified compliance difficulties, which can be even more costly.
