Medical coding is the new career option for life science students, says Omega Healthcare Management Services Pvt. Ltd., Senior Vice President, Julius Raj Stephen.
According to Mr Stephen, not only students from life science background but also, non-life science students can take up medical coding and become a medical coder through certification course in medical coding.
Through medical coding, students also learn certain skill sets. Various institutes provide medical coding certificate course. Omega Medical Coding Academy is one of these institutes that provides the certification course. It imparts necessary knowledge and training required by a medical coder.
The scope for medical coding is increasing exponentially in India. Medical coding procedure is very complex and kept confidential. The coders should be able to decode the details in a patient's record and apply the appropriate codes.
