Online TrainingWith the transition to ICD-10 in 2014, medical coding has gained even more attention than usual as an allied health career with a promising future. In Canada, the transition to ICD-10 resulted in close to 1.5 to 2 coders needed to perform the same volume of coding, and this was after the system was fully learned. To date, there has been no return to ICD-9 production levels. The result, an increase in the need for medical coders. Quite a few sources have projected that many medical coders close to retirement have chosen to retire instead of transitioning to ICD-10. Top this off with the increased workload for ICD-10, and an industry that is already in dire need of coders will be at an extreme shortage of medical coders.  

Med-Line has been educating healthcare documentation experts for over 20 years. Our program addresses weaknesses seen in many coding programs by focusing on a more in-depth medical knowledge training as well as training students in technologies that most programs overlook. In this EHR era, individuals without a strong technology background will be ill-suited and likely to struggle as the industry evolves. Med-Line recognizes this and works to ensure that graduates exceed technology standards in the industry.
