I am looking for Cardiology coding training. I know about Z Health but if you have never coded anything in Cardiology where can you go for the basic abc training. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The best kind of training is on the job. To have someone explain and show you the procedures. You should start with the basic left heart cath first , then left and right heart cath procedures. One of the best ways to learn is "google". Ok so I just did that and look what I found. This is pretty good for a start.

You can google "sample left heart cath report coding" and come up with alot of very good information. :)
