Medical coding is the process of transforming descriptions of medical diagnosis and procedures into universal medical code numbers.
Medicinefuture's answer is correct. There are codes for every diagnosis (even subsets within various diseases or conditions). These are used for billing purposes. Medical coders can earn very good incomes by identifying the right codes and entering them into insurance records, which allows the doctor(s) to be paid for the diagnosis and procedures they've done. The codes are universal, as was mentioned, so this also helps to ensure a patient's treatment history is tracked properly.
Medical coding is a process wherein the coder translate the procedure done to the patient into codes. To know more about medical coding, visit this site: http://bestmedicalcoding.com/
