Coding Strategies: Diagnostic Radiology Curriculum

Description

The Coding Strategies: Diagnostic Radiology Curriculum is a collection of nine online courses that cover all aspects of procedure and diagnosis coding for diagnostic radiology services. Each course focuses on a specific imaging modality, explaining procedure techniques, coding guidelines, modifier use, coverage issues, and reimbursement considerations. In addition, the courses contain examples, case studies, and multiple-choice exercises to improve comprehension and retention. Each course ends with a multiple-choice assessment to test the learner’s knowledge of the material.

Features

The courses in this curriculum include real-life scenarios and case studies, explanations of Medicare billing and reimbursement rules, and pointers on documentation requirements. Each course also includes a printable study guide that summarizes key learning points.

Users can access the Online Learning Center whenever and wherever they wish. At each login, users are returned to the last slide viewed during the previous session, allowing for convenient and flexible learning.

Audience

Coding and billing professionals working in the physician practice, hospital outpatient, or imaging center setting.
