Students will analyze current regulations and established guidelines in clinical classification systems; determine the diagnoses and procedures that require coding for acute care (inpatient) and outpatient services; interpret conventions, formats, instructional notations, tables, and definitions of the classification system to select diagnoses, conditions, problems or other reasons for the encounter that require coding to include the procedures/services that require coding; and determine sequence of diagnoses and procedures. Recommended: MDA 101 and start the BIO 231, BIO 232, and BIO 233 series.
