"Medical Coding Certification Exam Preparation" is designed to aid in the review for the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam. While not intended to be an introduction to medical coding, it provides an extensive review of the topics students need to know for the CPC exam, including coverage of anatomy, medical terminology, pathophysiology, as well as the concepts, guidelines and rules of medical coding. Based on their significant teaching experience and affiliations with AAPC, authors Cynthia Stewart and Cynthia Ward bring a fresh approach to preparing for the exam. The book is organized around the principle that students need the tools to understand how to break cases down and how to translate services, procedures, and diagnosis into codes. The importance of understanding and knowing how to locate and use the guidelines inherent to the ICD, CPT and HCPCS coding manuals is emphasized throughout the book with the use of Spotlights and Mentor Coding Tips. Each chapter contains questions similar to those found on the CPC exam. In addition, each of the five units of the book ends with a Unit Exam, meant to be a cumulative review. Finally, the book concludes with a comprehensive practice exam using ICD-9. (An ICD-10 exam is also available to help prepare students for the ICD-10 proficiency exam in development by AAPC.) Additional practice is available through Connect Plus, McGraw-Hill's online assignment and assessment tool.
This easy-to-read guide provides a concise introduction to the engineering background of modern communication systems, from mobile phones to data compression and storage. Background mathematics and specific engineering techniques are kept to a minimum so that only a basic knowledge of high-school mathematics is needed to understand the material covered. The authors begin with many practical applications in coding, including the repetition code, the Hamming code and the Huffman code. They then explain the corresponding information theory, from entropy and mutual information to channel capacity and the information transmission theorem. Finally, they provide insights into the connections between coding theory and other fields. Many worked examples are given throughout the book, using practical applications to illustrate theoretical definitions. Exercises are also included, enabling readers to double-check what they have learned and gain glimpses into more advanced topics, making this perfect for anyone who needs a quick introduction to the subject.
Corrective Reading, Decoding A - Teacher Materials Package Corrective Reading Decoding is a research-proven solution for students who struggle with frequent word identification errors, add and omit words, confuse high-frequency words, or read at a laboriously slow rate. Benefits: Students learn the skills and concepts necessary to progress from reading significantly below grade level to reading at or above a seventh grade level. Tightly sequenced lessons provide the structure and practice at risk students need to master high-priority skills. Stories written for the program provide a gradual progression in skill development that discourages guessing and overcomes the error patterns typically observed with problem readers. Daily fluency practice with immediate feedback helps students read fluently, accurately, and with expression. Comprehension activities include short-response and open-ended questions to ensure understanding.
