What is Medical Coding?
Medical coding goes way back to the 1600s in London, when alphanumeric codes were used to notate illnesses and fatalities among the city’s population. By the 1930’s, coding systems had been developed for tracking disease, medicine, and mortality rates which were implemented internationally. The Bertillon Classification, created nearly 140 years ago, is still the standard for medical coding today. Current Procedural Terminology, International Classification of Diseases, and Medical Data Classifications are updated by the World Health Organization.
