Pearson's Comprehensive Medical Coding is the recipient of the Most Promising New Textbook Award from the Textbook and Academic Authors' Association

Pearson's Comprehensive Medical Coding: A Path to Success
offers comprehensive coverage of all code sets (ICD-10-CM/PCS, ICD-9-CM, CPT, HCPCS) and can be used for three coding courses: diagnosis coding, physician procedure coding, and inpatient hospital coding.

Designed to give readers a strong foundation in essential competencies, Pearson's Comprehensive Medical Coding organizes chapters around three basic coding skills—abstracting, assigning, and arranging codes. Students are guided through the entire coding process in each chapter. Flexible in its organization and progressive in its numerous exercises of varying levels, the book is appropriate for traditional, modular, linear, and wheel courses. Guided Examples teach the coding process, while Mini-medical Records help students learn how to identify and abstract pertinent information from medical documentation. Throughout the book, superior in-text features provide a clear learning path to student success.
