The purpose of this course is to provide basic
factual information about the development and progress of disease, especially in
humans, and to provide a basic understanding of the concepts of pharmacology as
they relate to those diseases. The course consists of three interrelated
components: the basic processes that occur in diseases, specific systemic
diseases, and related information on pharmacology.
Coding Basics is a self-paced program
which will cover the foundational concepts in the coding and billing profession.
Coding professionals abstract clinical data from health records and assign
appropriate medical codes. These codes are used for reimbursement, planning, and
research. Comprehensive training in inpatient and outpatient coding is provided,
along with the necessary background courses in health record content, medical
terminology, and disease process.
At the end of this course, students will be able
- Classify the basic physiologic processes that occur
- Use the vocabulary of pathology and interpret the
descriptions of disease that are written by pathologists.
- Understand the fundamental principles of
pathophysiology in specific systemic diseases.
- Recognize common pharmacologic applications for specific disease
