Anatomy and Physiology for Medical Coding
With the much more stringent specificity required when coding in ICD-10-CM, coders can no longer get by without a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. This course will bolster your knowledge of anatomy and physiology and ensure your coding isn't slowed by unfamiliar terms in the medical record. To remain productive, coders need a good understanding of anatomy and pathophysiology (A&P). Physicians do not write in coding terms; they document for the patient's clinical condition. The clinical terms do not match up entirely with the coding descriptors--meaning that you need to be able to uncover the pertinent information.
