New Medical Coding Curriculum Results In Improved Test Scores

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  AAPC ( www.aapc.com), the leader in credentialing the business side of medicine, has analyzed students' certification exam pass rates based on where they received their training. According to the 2012 data, students of AAPC's online medical coding courses ( http://www.aapc.com/training/) are more likely to pass the exam than those receiving training outside of AAPC.

"We have found that 82% of the students who complete our online CPC ® course pass the certification exam, and over 90% of those are passing it on their first attempt," said Katherine Abel, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I, director of AAPC curriculum. "It makes sense for students to be trained by AAPC or an AAPC certified instructor when they plan on taking our certification exam."

AAPC's 2013 online medical coding course pre-enrollment is currently offered at a reduced price through November 30, with savings over $600. For full details please visit http://www.aapc.com/train2013.

AAPC also licenses this same curriculum for schools wishing to teach medical coding ( http://www.aapc.com/partner/medical-coding-education-provider.aspx).

About AAPC: AAPC ( www.aapc.com) is the nation's largest training and credentialing association for the business side of medicine, with more than 119,000 members representing physician offices, outpatient facilities, and payer environments.
