Healthcare industry is a fast growing industry; so as the career opportunities in the industry. The demand for Medical Coders is increasing all over the world day by day. Medical coding is an upcoming in-demand field in the stream of Healthcare Administration. A medical coder extracts the information from patients’ medical records and converts them to an industry-standard medical code, which is accepted universally.The healthcare industry is a fast-growing industry and the demand for medical coders is increasing exponentially. There are two factors that again make the demand for Coders high. Due to the immediate implementation of ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases-10th Revision) and EHR (Electronic Health Record), the Healthcare Industry is aggressively looking for trained, efficient, knowledgeable and certified coders.
