Medical coders are imperative workers within healthcare facilities that ensure medical data is managed with accuracy, accessibility, quality, and security. The data is transmitted with various electronic systems and paper systems that are grouped by codes. These codes are crucial for ensuring patients information is categorized for insurance reimbursement and medical databases that maintain the patients’ medical history such as procedures and treatments. Typically, a medical coder will review a patients’ records to check for timeliness, completeness, and accuracy, organizes and maintains patient data for medical databases and registries, tracks patient outcomes for quality assurance, assigns clinical codes (ICD-10) for insurance reimbursement and data analysis, records data for electronic storage, collection, analysis, retrieval, and for reports.
