Developed with the medical coder in mind, Advanced Anatomy and Physiology for ICD-10-CM/PCS 2016 explains the ICD-10 code set and provides training on anatomy, medical terminology, body systems, ICD-10 disease processes, and documentation requirements. The level of specificity in the ICD-10 code set requires an increased understanding of human anatomy and physiology to code appropriately. This full-color resource helps provide the insights that lead to mastery.
