About this Event



Course Overview

Inpatient coding is even more complex. Let our expert instructors make it simple.

The Certified Coder Boot Camp®—Inpatient Version is an intensive coding education course that will make coders proficient in ICD-10-CM/PCS coding for hospital inpatient facility services and MS-DRG assignment.

The course goes beyond explaining basic DRG classification. Coders leave class ready to:

  • Apply inpatient coding guidelines
  • Accurately assign ICD-10-CM/PCS codes and MS-DRGs
  • Query physicians more effectively

We’re not like other coding classes. We have been teaching inpatient coding for more than a decade! The Certified Coder Boot Camp—Inpatient Version uses a successful and proven method for teaching inpatient coding fundamentals:

Emphasis on hands-on exercises: Attendees complete multiple inpatient case studies and operative reports based on real medical records so they fully understand the impact of diagnosis/procedure code assignment on MS-DRG assignment.

Immediate feedback: Our instructors provide real-time feedback on the codes you assign. Continuous interactions with instructors ensure you have a complete understanding of code assignment.

Rules-based learning: Our instructors only use recognized source authorities, such as the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting and the AHA’s Coding Clinic for ICD-10-CM/PCS®, in course materials.

Experience: All of our instructors have at least 15 years of inpatient coding experience. They know exactly what coders need to learn and how to present complex coding topics in an easy-to-understand manner.

The Certified Coder Boot Camp—Inpatient Version not only teaches you everything you need to know to be an inpatient coder, but also provides several professional benefits:

  • Enhance your career potential and growth—employers are looking for coders with accurate inpatient coding skills
  • Take on more complex medical coding cases
  • Increase your professional credibility
  • Become a valuable resource to your facility

For employers:

  • Coder training is an important investment for your organization. Having highly qualified, certified coders on staff can:

  • Ensure correct medical coding based on reputable source authorities such as the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reportingand the AHA's Coding Clinic
  • Facilitate the physician query process to ensure appropriate DRG assignment
  • Ensure appropriate reimbursement for services performed
  • Increase employee confidence
  • Increase productivity
  • Maintain compliance

See the HCPro difference for yourself!

Custom-designed course materials: Materials are developed by our instructors specifically for this intensive learning format.

Hands-on learning: Attendees complete a set of exercises/case studies after appropriate modules to ensure that they understand the concepts and know how to apply them to real-world situations.

Small class size: Class size is limited to ensure individual attention.

Nationally recognized educators: HCPro is the nation's premier organization offering boot camp training courses to healthcare coding professionals.

Learning Objectives

  • Relate interaction of diagnoses/procedures on reimbursement by accurately assigning MS-DRGs for inpatient services
  • Review chapter-specific diagnoses/procedures for their clinical presentation and application to better understand code assignment
  • Recognize appropriate documentation and documenters within the inpatient medical record to support valid code assignment
  • Review appropriate coding resources such as the AHA’s Coding Clinic for ICD-10-CM/PCS as they apply to certain chapter-specific diagnoses/procedures
