LAB ACTIVITY: PRACTICING CODING PATHWAYS Note: There are three sections to complete for this lab worksheet. Each section is for a different coding system in which you will use a different code book that matches the name of that coding system. Please make sure you have done all your reading assignments in the course and in the code books before beginning these lab activities. It is suggested that before you do each section, you review the reading assignment in the code books for how to code in that particular coding system. A code book contains all you need to know about how to code for each coding system. Follow step by step. Take it slowly. You will not be able to speed through this unless you have a background in coding. A good rule to remember in coding is that reading slowly for understanding is very important in learning the skill of coding, even when you are coding on the job. Even experienced coders have to remember this rule. And always double check your work when you have chosen a code. Even experienced coders do that. Section 1: ICD 10 CM Coding System Use your ICD 10 CM code book to find the diagnosis listed below. You will first look in your Alphabetic Index. Make a note of the code or codes given to up in the Tabular Index. As you look at the code description under the code given in the Tabular Index, make sure that your code description is matching the documentation you are coding.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
