Terminology coverage specific to ICD-10-CM/PCS familiarizes you with the terms and definitions you'll encounter most frequently in coding practice.
Anatomy and physiology content helps you accurately interpret medical reports to code effectively in ICD-10-CM/PCS.
Pathology terms are organized by disease and disorder classification so you can practice locating information just as you will when coding with ICD-10-CM.
ICD codes provided for pathology terms and signs/symptoms help you associate diagnoses with related codes.
In-book exercises test your understanding as you learn.
Pathology and procedure terminology tables challenge you to decode terms by word origins and definitions.
Root operation information is incorporated into procedure tables to familiarize you with the associated common suffixes.
Electronic medical record format familiarizes you with documentation commonly used in healthcare settings.
Guideline Alert! boxes link terminology to relevant ICD-10-CM/PCS information at a glance.
Be Careful! boxes alert you to similar and potentially confusing word parts and terms.
Interactive learning games and activities on a companion Evolve website reinforce your comprehension and make learning medical terminology more engaging.

System Requirements for Streaming Video
Our members area offers online streaming videos that are fully compatible with the newest web browsers from Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Older versions of web browsers will not work since they do not support HTML5 or modern video files.
CCO only supports the Chrome Web Browser which can be downloaded for free here.
We recommend a modern computer/laptop/tablet and a high-speed internet connection to experience smooth streaming video playback. Slower computers (pre-2002) and internet connections may result in choppy playback and download errors.
Newer iTunes, iPhones, iPads and iPods are fully supported. The iPad 1, unfortunately, is showing it's age and doesn't stream larger videos very well.
Android phones are not officially supported, but students report the videos play well on them.
Finally, don't stress the tech stuff too much. Our friendly support team is always here to help you on your medical coding journey.
