The HIMAA Advanced ICD-10-AM, ACHI and ACS clinical coding course will be of value to coders who already have significant experience in clinical coding and who wish to gain exposure to a broad casemix at an advanced level. The course will further educate experienced clinical coders to better understand coding conventions, standards and practices in an extensive casemix and will develop the skills and knowledge required to code highly complex medical records. The coding and clinical sciences information on conditions and procedures in the coursework will assist the clinical coder in accurate code extraction which will lead to correct DRG allocation. The coursework will provide students with an ongoing central reference and educational tool.
