Description: Medical coding is a niche specialization within the gamut of healthcare. The development of the electronic medical record (EMR) spurred evolution of coding discipline that translates patient data into universally accepted codes. These codes are generally used to submit claims to third party payers, and to gather statistical information, both by tracking incidents of specific diseases, and by discerning developing trends in treatment protocols. In practice, medical coding is primarily used to file healthcare claims, but the data contained in these claims has further uses for accurate diagnosis and procedure codes, long after individual claims are paid.

Prospects:Medical Coders are today one amongst the most sought professionals in healthcare. India has a very small coder talent base while on the other hand healthcare organizations are battling it out to attract and retain the country’s best talent. The reason for this need-gap is the lack of awareness about the scope of medical coding amongst existing healthcare professionals and life-science graduates aspiring to be part of the healthcare industry at large.
