ICD-10-CM Inpatient Diagnosis Coding: Lesson 01: An Overview of Inpatient Coding

Green Clock Hours: 0.50

The source document for coding and reporting diagnoses and procedures is the patient's medical record. Coding specialists translate medical terminology from text into codes. They use a set of nationally recognized rules and guidelines to select the correct codes for the services provided and procedures performed. The codes are then used to report data on that patient for the purposes of data collection, quality assurance, reimbursement for the facility, and research, to name just a few. Before beginning this lesson, you should have access to the most recent version of ICD-10-CM (International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification). If you do not have the most recent copy of an ICD-10-CM code book, then click the Resources tab to find and download the necessary documents. Be sure and download both the index and tabular listing of ICD-10-CM as well as the External Cause of Injuries Index, the Table of Drugs and Chemicals, and the Table of Neoplasms. The codes and information in this lesson are updated as needed and receive a comprehensive review annually.
