Understand the principles of ICD-10-AM and ACHI Coding
The course is one way to start your clinical coding career but only a start. If you are unsure of whether coding is for you it can be a good way to assess your interest. For those wishing to progress further into full entry level clinical coding this can be step 1 as you can upgrade to the Diploma and your work in this program, if satisfactory may give you some credit in the Diploma in Clinical Coding.
If you aren't sure you want to take on a full program to get you ready to work as a clinical coder but would like to get the basics - this is the place for you to start.
Opportunities after doing this course
Some organisations will employ graduates after this stage, but skills are limited to simple coding environments. For jobs as a clinical coder in hospitals you will require the full Diploma. Those working in Research may find this a useful course to build understanding of the code system without all the skills needed to work as a clinical coder.
You will have access to highly experienced clinical coders and trainers while completing the course at your own pace online from anywhere in the world. Our trainers are there to help you learn, they are qualified clinical coders, health information managers, health informaticians, and educators.
