This textbook will contain many opportunities to abstract from medical documents. The format of the book will be more of a Worktext, with an introduction. This book will describe medical scenarios for abstracting diagnoses and procedures and matching diagnoses with the correct procedures. Students can learn how to code, but what they don’t really learn is to extract the right information from medical records in order to code properly. Oftentimes students have a hard time understanding that both ICD-9 and CPT codes are needed for the claim. This book will address these problems. This book will include more advanced coding concepts and more on abstracting diagnoses and procedures than what is found in current texts. This text will cover when and how to use CPT modifiers and will also include some hints the authors taught students to help make coding more understandable. Other learning materials throw students into coding without any foundation for abstraction of medical information.
