Handbook content reflects 2013 versions of the Official Coding Guidelines and its format and style follows previous Faye Brown editions. The text leads students to logical answers and provides primary supporting source. This logical approach has allowed the Handbook to become the most popular textbook for hospital and physician office coder training. Exercises are presented in clear, technically correct language that progresses from easy to more difficult. Exercise answers in the case summaries list assigned and appropriately sequenced codes, followed by a comments section that explains how codes were assigned and why other codes were not assigned. Each chapter includes an overview that highlights important points and includes "learning outcomes" and "terms to know" --features that help readers understand and absorb new information. A "Remember..." feature provides sidebar comments or facts that alert readers to special information or perspectives. Expanded indexes enhance the speed of finding and applying information. Scores of Exercises and Quizzes The Handbook contains more than 60 new exercises and case studies, plus updates to the 100-plus in-chapter exercises and review questions. The case-summary exercises are based on health records and require readers to consider the patients condition as well as medical history, reason for admission or encounter, laboratory results, procedures performed, and the diagnoses listed. Readers must apply pertinent coding principles and official coding guidelines in making code assignments and designating the principal diagnosis and procedure for each episode of care. Illustrations of surgical procedures and diagrams of anatomy and common disorders make it easier for readers to remember and absorb information, plus the Handbook includes an appendix on reimbursement methodologies valuable to new students.
