DescriptionMedical coders electronically record, store and report on reams of data, and they use those statistics in several ways. First, coders must organize and keep numbers for clinical databases and patient registries to help hospitals and clinics track a treatment's long-term effectiveness. Coders also follow patient outcomes to enable providers to evaluate the quality of care. To help providers get reimbursement, coders assign clinical codes with classification software. Plus, hospitals use coders' compilations of medical records to research how to control costs or enhance care.
Working hours: 8:00am-5:00pm
Medical coders must have a postsecondary certificate and professional credentials. Training is available at community colleges and professional schools, and emphasizes teaching coding skills as well as medical terminology, techniques for obtaining patient information, organizational skills, communications skills and the coder's role in the medical profession. Employers also prefer medical coders who are certified as a Registered Health Information Technician. To earn this designation, coders must pass an exam given through trade group AHIMA. The 3 1/2-hour test has 150 multiple-choice questions on topics including data anomalies, data organization, generating spreadsheets, reviewing data trends and calculating health care statistics.
