COCL 1200

This course is a continuation of COCL 1000 and COCL 1100 and is designed to provide knowledge in health care classification using ICD-10-CA/CCI, SNOMED CT, and DSM IV.  This course focuses on these nomenclatures and classification systems, basic coding guidelines, as well as the importance of data quality and the uses of coded information.  Folio software is used to teach the coding of diagnoses and interventions.  Students are taught the search engines needed to locate, select, and apply consistency in their coding.  Students are also taught how to search for a code in the abstracting software and are shown the differences between the coding classifications.  CIHI coding conventions and standards are taught in conjunction with this course to provide the students with the understanding that coding and data quality work simultaneously.  Abstracting of the data is reviewed with the use of the CIHI DAD/NACRS Abstracting Manuals in conjunction with the abstracting software.  Coded data is reviewed and tested by the use of coding and abstracting exercises, quizzes, tests and exams using in-class and sample hospital cases.
