Anatomy and Pathophysiology for ICD-10

Comprehensive Business Solutions

With the increase of specificity found in the ICD-10-CM code set, coders will need to have a stronger understanding of anatomy and disease processes as they pertain to coding. AAPC has developed an Anatomy and Pathophysiology (A&P) training course that is designed to prepare coders for the advanced specificity and the stronger clinical knowledge requirements that will be necessary for proper selection of ICD-10-CM code sets.

The A&P training is provided as an online, on demand, distance learning program that allows users the flexibility to take the course from anywhere and work at their own pace. The program covers all body systems in 14 modules that use multimedia presentations along with downloadable manuals. Each module includes evaluation quizzes to solidify and assess the learning process.

There are two types of A&P training, for those needing a refresher or better understanding we have Advanced A&P. For those working in risk adjustment or quality programs we offer Advanced A&P for Chronic Conditions.
