Med-Line School of Medical Transcription has launched a medical coding training program called the Coding Bridge Program. Considering the changing health care industry right now, the name seems appropriate.

PRWeb brought this news to our attention in their article, “Industry-leading Med-Line School of Medical Transcription launches Coding Bridge Program.” Medical coding requires those who are detail-oriented, accurate and efficient. Considering the new transition to the ICD-10 classification system, the details will be even more important. Medical coding requires specialized expertise and systems tailored to the regulatory requirements in which health care providers, hospitals, and doctors deliver their services. Errors cost money, period.

Access Innovations, Inc., a leader in data integrity and content creation, has announced the Access Innovations Integrity Initiative (AI³), a suite of tools and services for quality assurance and validation of medical coding. The system can be used to quickly and accurately validate medical coding or to locate errors in existing documentation.
