Medical Coding and Billing Schools and Training Programs

Much of the work being done in healthcare IT today is with patient medical records.Every time a patient visits a hospital, clinic or physician’s office, a medical record of any observations, diagnoses or treatments is created and entered into a database.  Medical records and health information technicians assemble and organize patients’ health information, and ensure its quality, accuracy, accessibility and security.

One of the more important careers in this area is medical coding and billing. Medical coding and billing specialists are trained to use the latest healthcare IT software in order to facilitate the processing of medical insurance claims.

Insurers have to make sure that they’re only paying for medical treatments that fall within the terms of a patient’s policy. In order to cut down on mistakes, they create coding systems to identify certain medical treatments and procedures. Medical billing and coding specialists use these codes to categorize patients’ medical files and create medical bills.

Work Environments and Locations

Those that work in medical billing and coding usually enjoy pleasant working conditions and normal working hours. They generally work in the administrative offices of hospitals, clinics, or other types of medical facilities.

About 40% of all medical records technicians were employed in hospitals in 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov, 2010) reports, while the remainder worked in physicians’ offices, nursing homes or outpatient centers. However, in the future, most jobs will likely be in physicians’ offices as a result of the growing need for meticulous records.
