Introduction to basic ICD-9CM (International Classification of Diseases - 9th Clinical) coding. Students will utilize their knowledge of medical terminology and human anatomy to convert diagnostic statements into numerical codes. Basic coding guidelines and logic will be presented as diagnoses related to each body system are studied. The course also includes an overview of other medical nomenclatures and classification systems.
Course Completion of HLC 160 ( or HLC 60) and Course Completion of ANAT 58 OR Course Completion of HLC 160 ( or HLC 60) and Course Completion of ANAT 51
