The global medical coding market is expected to expand during the forecast period, mainly on account of rising number of patients suffering from diseases, increasing number of patients visiting hospitals, implementation of information technology (IT) in healthcare settings, and adoption of medical coding for health insurance claim management. Rising occurrence of insurance frauds and insurance issues associated with misinterpretation of medical documents are also responsible for driving the demand of medical coding services, especially in developed countries.
Medical coders convert medical reports from doctors, which may include a patient’s condition, the doctor’s diagnosis, a prescription, and procedures the doctor or healthcare provider performed on the patient, into a set of codes, which make up a crucial part of the medical claim.
