Hope of St. James has produced thousands of successful Medical Coders. We have maintained a 99% passing rate for over 20 years.
Medical Coding is the assignment of alphanumeric codes to medical diagnoses and procedures performed on a patient. The coders read and analyze the patient's medical record and then assign codes to the diagnoses and procedures. These codes are then used for hospital reimbursement.
The demand for Medical Coders is expected to increase significantly in coming years.The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 21% increase in employment opportunities for health information technicians (including Medical Coders). Their 2013 Occupational Outlook Handbook projected that 37,700 more health information technicians will be employed by 2020.
An increasing trend in the coding industry is working from the comfort of your own home. Employees can now ave time and money commuting to and from work.
