Clinical Coding involves reviewing, analyzing, and translating medical information from a patient’s medical record into alphanumeric/numeric codes, using a complex health classification system. The resulting data provides comprehensive quality information that is used for direct patient care, physician and hospital reimbursement, research, decision-making and health system planning. Clinical Coding ranks as one of the most promising careers around the world.
