When a patient visits the doctor or a medical facility of any type for that matter–the physician takes notes and later dictates these into a recorded device. The notes are printed and placed in the patient’s file. But then comes a critical step. A medical coder will read the doctor’s notations and transpose this medical information into a numeric language of sorts, replacing the doctor’s words with formal standardized codes to illustrate to billing departments and insurance companies what procedures specifically have been performed.
The medical field is constantly evolving. Doctor’s offices and hospitals are forever scrambling to stay one step ahead of these changes and be in strict compliance to preserve profitability. Trained professionals have never been more in demand for this field. And that results in many opportunities for you, as a professional medical coder.
