Medical Coding Pathway

Medical Coders manage health information data by ensuring that it maintains its quality, accuracy, accessibility, and security in both paper files and electronic systems. They use various classification systems to code and categorize patient information for insurance reimbursement purposes, for databases and registries, and to maintain patients’ medical and treatment histories.

The Medical Coding programs focus on preparing the students for in-depth knowledge of coding. These programs will give you the skills and knowledge you need to gain national certification as a Certified Professional Coder (CPC) through the American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC).
