HIM 225 Advanced Medical Coding

Stresses advanced coding skills through practical exercises using actual medical records. This course requires students to build on the knowledge gained from HIM 215 and further develop their critical thinking skills as they are challenged to analyze and code increasingly complex cases that may not be covered by specific insurance plans. The course also allows students to use computerized tools in the coding process and manage the quality assurance of health care records. Finally the course introduces the students to the more comprehensive codes in ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS as well as other coding systems. This course uses active- and inquiry-learning techniques in which students are required to solve problems each week. Prerequisite: HIM 215. (3)
