Inpatient/Facility Coding

    I know AAPC does not deal with Inpatient Coding or Facility Coding. Has anyone ever taken and Inpatient course or bootcamp that they would recommend? I work for a hospital doing outpatient coding but would like to learn Inpatient. I looked over the AHIMA website, but I didn't see anything interesting. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have always heard that AHIMA is the resource for Inpatient coding. Maybe someone else has a resource to offer.

    I would suggest buying Faye Browns ICD 9 Handbook. That is what I used when I was decided to learn inpatient coding. I studied that book for a couple of months and was able to successfully land a facility inpatient coding job.


    As far as learning DRGs, there really aren't any resources other than learning on the job.

    Good Luck

    Hi Kerri: HcPro has been a great resource for other Coding education. They have a Certified Coder IP Boot Camp. I have not attended this, but heard it's good.
