New to This Edition
- NEW Anatomy/Physiology/Terminology chapter prepares students for proper coding by providing a good understanding of these basic concepts.
- Smaller sections and improved flow of the text means students understand and master the information more easily.
- EXPANDED illustrations of sample patient charts with improved explanations of proper code assignment.
- Fully updated content, including new codes and coding guidelines. New focus on ICD-10 content for those instructors who want to prepare students for ICD-10 implementation.
- NEW Evolve companion website contains interactive coding exercises and other review exercises for students' practice.
- Emphasis on physician documentation prepares students to locate and determine the actual "diagnosis" and "procedure" from documentation.
- Coding reference tools, in an improved and streamlined form for the 4th edition, encompass important chapter content.
- Coding concepts are built upon basic ICD-9-CM and CPT concepts rather than a body system perspective for greater ease and productivity from students.
- Stop and Practice exercises, simulated medical practices, Chapter Review exercises with practical applications, and additional exercises in the student workbook means students constantly practice and reinforce their understanding of the information.
