Certified Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Coder (CCVTC) Preparation Training Course

Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Specialty Coding Course

The CCVTC credential is for Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery specialty coding. The prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is increasing consistently due to many causes, including associated lifestyle risk factors. There are also new, less invasive techniques that allow these surgeries to be performed on frail people. This is expected to open additional opportunities for the medical coding industry.

And so, as cardiovascular diseases increase, so does the need for medical care and someone to code the procedures.
