ICD Coding

We provide end-to-end learning experiences to meet today’s changing healthcare industry.

Get Started

ICD-10-CM is on the horizon, and both a greater knowledge of clinical documentation will be required of coders. ICD-10 is the anticipated clinical modification of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision. ICD-10 far exceeds its predecessors in the number of concepts and codes provided. The disease classification has been expanded to include health-related conditions and to provide greater specificity.

CentraMed’s ICD-9-CM Coding Education is designed to fill the coder education gap in preparation for ICD-10 implementation as well as to provide education that is currently applicable to using ICD-9-CM. Our extensive education combines anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, and disease process information with coding guidelines developed by the Cooperating Parties and official references such as Coding Clinic. Our courses also include the effects of code assignment and clinical documentation on MS-DRG reimbursement. No other education on the market today serves as comprehensively to prepare trainees for ICD-10 and enhance their ICD-9-CM coding skills.

CentraMed has partnered with AAMAS to provide online educational courses.
