On October 1, 2014, the national healthcare system will implement ICD-10-CM/PCS, making it imperative that coders and billers have the knowledge to ensure a successful transition to new coding practices.
Northeast State’s Workforce Solutions is offering an in-depth course in anatomy and medical terminology to update healthcare professionals on their ICD-10-CM/PCS knowledge and skills.
Medical terminology is a specialized communication used by medical professionals and the vocabulary is derived from Latin and Greek words/components. Participants will learn to understand the meaning of these word components to be able to interpret their location in the human body and their respective meaning. This will be accomplished by learning the prefix, suffix, root words, meaning, word origins and definitions. Participants will identify the respective location in the body or the function the body is undergoing when using the appropriate medical language.
