Physician Coding Assessment

Overview

HCPro’s Physician Coding Assessment is the ideal tool for individual physician coders and/or coding leadership to identify physician coding understanding, identify potential skills gaps, pinpoint areas for new learning opportunities, and monitor progress over time.

This easy-to-use online assessment includes 100 questions covering the following topics:

  • General Knowledge – 20 questions
  • ICD-10-CM – 15 questions
  • Medical terminology/human anatomy – 35 questions
  • CPT®/HCPCS II – 30 questions

This single assessment tool provides physician coders greater insight and direction for future professional development.

As physician coders work through the assessment, they are provided feedback on their level of proficiency for each topic, identifying areas of strength and areas for further study. The accompanying “Reading Your Results” guide provides physician coders with greater understanding and detail for career development.

Coding leadership can use the Physician Coding Assessment in many ways:

  • Pre-assessment as part of interview process for new hires
  • Orientation assessment for new hires
  • Benchmark employees throughout the onboarding process
  • Pre- and post-education assessments to measure learning retention
  • Annual competency assessments and performance reviews

The Physician Coding Assessment saves time for both you and your staff, as you can eliminate unnecessary training and plan educational activities that will most likely impact your bottom line.
