Inpatient coding professionals review and assign ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS codes to inpatient hospital records. The assignment of codes is based on provider and clinician documentation. It is vital the codes assigned by the coding professional are accurate and reflect the condition(s) of the patient and the procedures performed during the hospital stay. This data is used for many purposes including reimbursement and quality and population health reporting.
Whether you are new to the coding profession or an experienced coding professional who wants to demonstrate your coding proficiency, AHIMA provides education and training, certification (CCA® and CCS® credentials), and other valuable resources to support your lifelong learning and continued advancement.
