simply speaking in medical coding, the hospital medical records scanned and then there are codes for all the diseases and treatment given to the patient. You cannot imagine but there are codes for every disease, injection, medicine, surgery, and all possible services provided to the patient.

I currently live in Viet Nam, a developping country. I'm not sure, but I think medical coding is not used in hospital in this country in spite of many its advantages. Maybe there're some requirements, for exampes: technique or money... Rolling Eyes

Actually we do not have medical coding in India, but we get work from US. there are outsourcing companies who bring work to india. Vietnam is also a developing country, so you may also have some companies having medical coding there

Do outsource companies use online coding tools or books?

Just curious how coding is done in the outsourced community. Can either of you shed some light on this for me? Thanks!

Why is it that you simply don’t have a medical coding in India? Does it mean that it only prefers offers within the country that's developing?

Insurance billing claims use medical coding for refund. Medical coding provides important information used in clinical research.
