If you want to work in the medical coding field, the Associate of Applied Science Healthcare coding program offered through NAU's school in Albuquerque is a good choice. Healthcare coding professionals are key players in the healthcare workplace, accurately converting disease, injury and procedure descriptions documented in patient records into numeric or alphanumeric codes using coding manuals and encoder software. These codes assist in securing reimbursement for physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers. Healthcare organizations also use coded data for quality management, planning, marketing, and other administrative and research activities. Healthcare coding professionals spend their days analyzing patient charts to assign these codes and ensure that the healthcare providers they work for are properly reimbursed for their services.
