Creating our Code of Ethics Policy

We are proud to share our new Code of Ethics and Standards of Ethical Coding with you. The Code was adopted from AHIMA’s Code of Ethics and modified to fit our industry and culture.

It may feel like one more thing to do, but having a code of ethics and standards is important for any business – and vital for one in the healthcare industry. Coding is one of the core health information management functions, and due to the complex regulatory requirements affecting the health information coding process, coding professionals are frequently faced with ethical challenges. 

That’s where our Code of Ethics comes in.

Check out our Standards of Ethical Coding and our Code of Ethics and let us know what you think in the comments section. Leave us a note if you need help working on yours.
