Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Codes in Medical Transcription

O2I offers medical coding or medical classification services to put procedural codes for each medical diagnosis description while offering medical transcription services. The CPT codes or Current Procedural Terminology Codes are provided by the American Medical Association for the purpose of accurately describing all types of medical/surgical/diagnostic services in numeric terms. The healthcare experts at O2I take the relevant information from a range of sources like medical records, transcription of doctors' notes and lab results amongst others to accurately put the right code for each file. The AMA continuously works to offer the most up-to-date codes that are followed nationally.

CPA coding is a part of the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System. (Read more on HCPCS codes in healthcare). This system is a uniform method that healthcare providers and medical suppliers follow, to accurately designate professional services, procedures, and supplies.

Advantages of CPT Coding in Medical Transcription:

  • Easy tracking: With proper indexing and CPT coding of your medical files, it becomes extremely easy to track diseases and related diagnosis from even a very large database of records.
  • Faster analysis: Healthcare physicians and statistical organizations can quickly search for simple to complex cases and analyze them. This knowledge can help healthcare physicians in accurately diagnosing and treating the symptoms at hand.
  • Healthcare financing: This coding mechanism is widely used by all healthcare insurance firms to identify the exact disease and offer reimbursement accordingly. The process becomes more efficient and the medical carriers are able to offer correct amounts based on the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) regulations.
  • Common codes for all needs: With precise coding of medical records, the information sharing among healthcare physicians, surgeons, patients, accreditation organizations, insurance organizations and financial reimbursement organizations becomes consistent.

The Three Types of CPT Codes (5-digit numeric codes):

  • Category I CPT Codes
  • Category II CPT Codes for performance measurement
  • Category III CPT Codes for emerging technologies
