WHAT IS CLINICAL CODING?
Clinical coding is the translation of medical diagnoses and procedures into universal clinical code numbers. The diagnoses and procedures are usually taken from a variety of sources within the medical record, such as the transcription of the doctor’s notes, laboratory results, radiologic results, and other sources.
This data is then used for:
- Funding and reimbursement
- Research & statistics
- Resource allocation
- Health services planning
- Epidemiological studies
