Health Care Coding Certificate

Set the record straight

When you visit a hospital, there’s more to it than the check-up. Behind the scenes, coders are working hard to get your charts organized with all the right information. After reading and interpreting documentation by clinicians and physicians, health coders assign diagnosis and procedure codes to patient records and payer claims.

With our online Health Care Coding Certificate, you too can become a medical coding professional. Your curriculum will focus on industry standards like International Classifications of Diseases (ICD-10, ICD-10 PCS) and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) coding.

You’ll code symptoms, diseases, operations, procedures, and therapies to a recognized classifications systems. You’ll be able to perform analysis of health records and evaluate compliance with regulations and standards.

Practice makes perfect

As part of the coding certificate program, you’ll complete a supervised professional practice. This practice is completed at a health care facility and will provide hands-on training and networking.

This certificate is specifically designed for those who would like to be a medical coder but are working towards their associate’s or bachelor’s degree. If this is you, you’ve come to the right place. Our program also serves as a stepping stone to the A.S. in Health Information Technology and the B.S. in Health Information Administration.

Ready. Set. Go.

Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared to take the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Certified Coding Associate exam. Other opportunities, such as completing additional exams to become a Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) or Certified Coding Specialist-Physician based (CCS-P) are also available.
