The Next Step for Advanced Medical Coding: A Worktext
This book focuses on physician and outpatient coding for medical visits, diagnostic testing and interpretation, surgeries, anesthesia, and all physician treatments and services. Everything previously learned in the basic Step text is brought together in this book to simulate the professional coding experience. It focuses on patient cases, some with multiple records or reports, requiring readers to differentiate between coding a particular diagnosis or procedure based on a visit to a doctor's office versus an outpatient procedure at a hospital or similar facility. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details.
