Inpatient Coding

Tina Hanvold describes what the work is like for Inpatient Coders at MultiCare. The Inpatient Coder is an advanced coding position that is responsible for accurately assigning codes to diagnoses and procedures for all inpatient cases ranging from moderate to high complexity (i.e. trauma, invasive cardiac, multiple procedures, etc); using the current version of ICD-CM Classification for Hospitals to arrive at the most appropriate DRG assignment. Medical coding professionals provide a key step in the medical billing process.
