About our online training course

This Medical Coding and Billing IDC-9 online training course will lay the groundwork of your healthcare data pathway and equip you with the skills necessary to succeed in coding within the healthcare industry. Healthcare is an intricate domain due to its ever changing and complex processes related to health management, treatments, etc. We’ll investigate all aspects of this field so that we can recognize how valuable -and increasingly sought-after- medical coding is!

The ICD is currently the most widely used statistical classification system for diseases in the world. ICD-9-CM is an adaption created by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and used in assigning diagnostic and procedure codes associated with inpatient, outpatient, and physician office utilization in the United States.

The ICD-9-CM is based on the ICD-9, but provides for additional morbidity detail.

About ICD-9

For more than a century, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) has been relied upon to accurately track global diseases and deaths. Initially created by the International Statistical Institute in 1893 as the International List of Causes of Death, ICD has since undergone numerous developments and remains one of the most prominent disease surveillance systems utilized today. The adaptation of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) ICD-9-CM code set was approved in the US back in 1979 and has since been consistently updated. This system is meticulously monitored to ensure that it meets up with provider, payer, and other key stakeholder needs at least once every year. In 2015, the ICD-10 coding system replaced ICD-9 and this upgraded version contains significantly more codes than its predecessor which makes this transition even more important for our overall health care industry.

  1. I was looking for an online course for Six Sigma as my new boss is a true believer and I wanted to have a better handle of what is Six Sigma. I started looking around and found ITU, and bought the course, and could not be happier. I have no intention of getting certified, but at least now I can speak the jargon and understand what my boss is talking about.

  2. The educators at ituonline.com are highly skilled but could improve their methods of instruction. In the CCNA 200-301 course, there’s a heavy emphasis on oral lectures, and it would be beneficial to include more in-depth visual aids. Annotating labs and graphics could also make the educational journey more effective. On the other hand, the N10-008 course instructor consistently offers top-notch material.

  3. The CompTIA PenTest was an excellent course and the instructor, Chrys, explained the material in a clear and easy way for me to understand and comprehend essential techniques. Highly recommend!
