This course aims to evaluate the reference terminologies that are currently used in health care settings (SNOMED-CT, LOINC) as well as applications of data capture technologies (such as natural language processing, voice recognition, document imaging). Further, the course intends to introduce the students to computer assisted coding technology applications and evaluate the use of health care terminologies, vocabularies and classification systems found both nationally and internationally. A more focused review on format, guidelines and application for ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS and HCPCS/CPT will take place. Students will utilize online coding tools to obtain hands-on practice with each of these 3 systems.
