Medical Record Coding Technician
Medical record coding technicians, or coders, use alphanumeric diagnosis and procedure codes to communicate critical information about medical conditions and treatments. Coders translate medical terminology into a standardized format, allowing information to be transmitted accurately between healthcare providers and insurance payers. They must rely on medical terminology, human anatomy, health conditions, and medications to assign the proper medical codes for each patient encounter.
