  1. MEDICAL CODING AND BILLING

  2. What is medical coding? • Medical billing and medical coding are often linked together so closely you might assume they are essentially the same profession. • Medical coding is a widespread profession within the wider field of a healthcare organization. • They translate the written documentation into universally accepted, industry-standard medical code. • Perfect medical coding is vital to the healthcare industry. In practice, medical coding is primarily used to file healthcare claims, but the data contained in these claims has further uses for accurate diagnosis and modus operandi codes, long after individual claims are paid. • Best Medical Coding Certification www.clinizen.com

  4. Difference between coding and billing: • Medical Billing vs Medical Coding: • Medical billing and coding are two related professions. Professionals in each field use similar skills to achieve similar results, but the methods they use, and how they follow their goals, are different. • Though both fields focus on the administrative end of patient-procedure healthcare, medical billing and medical coding each require a distinctive skill set. • Medical billing and medical coding are often linked together so intimately you might assume they are essentially the same profession. They both require many of the same skill sets and are often required to complete very similar tasks. • Best Medical Coding Certification www.clinizen.com

Medical billers are responsible for creating a claim based on the codes of a medical coder provides.

  6. Uses of medical coding: • Medical coding is used for filing healthcare claims, but the usefulness of this profession goes beyond this. The data churned out by medical coding helps healthcare professionals make more accurate diagnosis and help in enhanced treatment protocols. • The information contained in medical coding data in the form of medical codes is a precise indicator of a patient's health history. This information, when refined, helps actuaries take decisions on making investments for their business. • Ensuring accuracy in medical coding is crucial to administering proper healthcare. Medical coding not only ensures a systematic and standardized manner in which third parties claim payment; the critical data that medical coding generates can be harnessed for further use. • By feeding policy makers and public health departments with important information on the incidence of diseases, medical coding also fosters proper allocation of resources to the particular segment of the healthcare industry about the kind of services that the community requires at a given point of time. This leads to an improved outlook for the general health of the patient population and reduces wastage of fund allocation. • Best Medical Coding Certification www.clinizen.com
