Med-Line, the premiere provider of healthcare documentation training, is proud to continue its tradition of raising the bar by offering complete medical coding training. Our coding program focuses on both hospital-based and physician-based coding. Graduates will be able to sit for their coding credentials.
According to research from the US Department of Labor on the future growth of the healthcare industry, Medical Records and Health Information Technician occupations have an expected growth of 20% by 2018. That's an estimated 35,100 new jobs within this field of expertise. Our complete medical coding program is designed to prepare the student for both physician- and hospital-based coding. We teach both ICD-9 and ICD-10 in the same program. The coding program builds a strong medical knowledge foundation that prepares the student for learning how to code healthcare documentation. This course enrolls students without a medical background and will teach core medical knowledge.
Medical coding is a natural career path for medical transcriptionists, nurses, and others with significant medical backgrounds seeking to broaden their career opportunities by learning a new skill set that naturally complements their transcription training and experience. Learning ICD-9 and ICD-10 as well as physician- and hospital-based coding allows an MT to re-tool and opens opportunities previously unavailable. We teach all of this in one single course. Med-Line's Medical Coding Bridge Program is designed to train individuals with previous experience in medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, technology, laboratory, and pharmacology. This comprehensive continuing education course is designed for practicing medical transcriptionists or graduates of a medical transcription school. Time for completion is estimated at 4 months.
