What are the primary duties of RN coders?

Medical Coding:

The primary function of RN coders is to assign codes to patient diagnoses, procedures, treatments and medical services.
They use coding systems such as ICD-10 (ICD-10) for diagnoses and CPT/HCPCS for procedures and services, among others.

Medical Accurate Documentation:

RN coders work closely with healthcare professionals to ensure that medical documentation is complete, detailed and accurate. This is crucial to ensure that the codes assigned are representative of the care provided.

Medical Record Review:

RN coders review patient medical records to identify relevant medical terms and descriptions that should be coded.
This may include medical reports, medical records, physician notes, and other documents.
