The last few weeks our students have been studying disease origin and the concept of assigning diagnosis codes based on physician documentation.
The ICD-10-CM (International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification) is a system used by physicians and other healthcare providers to classify and code all diagnoses, symptoms and procedures recorded in conjunction with hospital care in the United States.

Unsure what the medical coding is? Medical coding is the transformation of healthcare diagnosis, procedures, medical services and equipment into universal medical alphanumeric codes. The diagnoses & procedure codes are taken from medical record documentation, such as transcription of physician's notes, laboratory, radiologic results, etc.
