ICD-10 Medical Coding

ICD-10 is an upgraded diagnostic and procedural medical coding system that, by law, must be implemented throughout the healthcare industry by October 1, 2014. This new coding system is radically different from the version currently in use, so it’s important to start preparing for and implementing the massive changes to the existing coding system.

This online program offers you comprehensive, robust training in diagnostic and procedural coding, using the ICD-10-CM (diagnostic) and ICD-10-PCS (procedural) coding manuals. This training includes detailed instructions for using the coding manuals, understanding the coding guidelines, and accurately applying the ICD-10 coding steps. There are more than 40 quizzes and exams for diagnoses and procedures by body system to test your knowledge and understanding.

In addition, you will find information on the impact of the coding changes on medical coders, healthcare staff, physicians, software systems, documentation, and information technology.

The textbooks for this program are included. This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.


Upon successful completion of this program, you'll be able to:

  • Understand the structure of an ICD-10-CM code
  • Navigate the layout of the ICD-10-CM coding manual
  • Describe the ICD-10-CM Draft Conventions and Sections of the Official Coding Guidelines
  • Abstract diagnostic statements from the medical record and differentiate between main and modifying terms and subterms in the coding manuals
