ED Coding & Documentation Education

Sending your entire ED team to a national conference isn’t practical, so we bring the same timely educational content to your site and present it to your staff in person.

From the basics of ED coding and documentation to advanced topics for experienced coders, ERcoder offers a variety of educational courses for physicians and coding staff.

Our popular on-site courses provide the most up-to-date coding and documentation policies presented by a highly experienced award-winning instructor in a clear, efficient way.

ED-specific content: our training covers coding and documentation guidelines as they relate specifically to emergency medicine, so your team will code confidently and accurately, and you’ll comply with the most recent AMA and CMS guidelines and policies.
