A great reference book unlike many other medical dictionaries, the Coders' Dictionary assists you with detailed understanding of medical terminology from a coding perspective.
There are more than 6,500 alphabetic entries and over 150 illustrations throughout that emphasize the medical terminology definitions.
Youll also find definitions for new medical technology, acronyms, and eponyms. Pertinent definitions for clinical, coding, billing and reimbursement terms can also be found.
Another important feature is that many of the entries are linked to their appropriate codes. You'll find the applicable codes or code ranges for procedural, diagnostic and supplies.
The tabs and cross-references also make finding what you need so easy and most importantly fast.
This truly is a great book that will meet the specific needs of any coder or biller while enhancing their ability to interpret a medical record and more accurately code claims in the medical office setting.
