HEALTHCARE AND MEDICAL BILLING & CODING

Healthcare Administration Degrees Infused with Tech

Degree & Certificate Programs in Health Sciences infused with Tech

Technology is becoming increasingly integrated into the healthcare industry, including medical records and health information systems. If you are interested in these essential healthcare industries, the programs in DeVry University’s College of Health Sciences can help prepare you for a variety of specializations. Get started in a tech-infused undergraduate certificate or bachelor’s degree program and earn a credential employers recognize.

Take the TechPath

TechPath is our distinctive learning approach that grew out of the understanding that students need a different kind of education to prepare them for a world that’s tech-intense, constantly changing and connected as never before through the digital mesh – an ever-expanding dynamic interaction of smart machines, information, applications and human beings.

Every TechPath class you take, whether it’s in a business, health or tech program, revolves around a unique learning rubric developed at DeVry. We call it People-Process-Data-Devices or P2D2. You’ll gain real skills in collaboration, be able to adapt to new structures, create innovative ways of working, and be comfortable working with data and using a wide spectrum of tech-forward tools such as AHIMA’s VLab in some of our Medical Billing and Coding courses.

P2D2 is a key component of what makes TechPath a smart, new way of getting the knowledge you need to be ready to hit the ground running in the new way successful companies work today.

We’re proud to offer our TechPath Associate and Bachelor’s degree programs to new students at a 20% savings1. TechPath degree programs are noted below.

1 TechPath Associate and Bachelor’s degree programs are offered to new students at the cost of $487 per credit hour, which is 20% lower than our Non TechPath rate at $609. 20% savings is applicable to those who apply after 4/21/2017. New TechPath pricing savings do not apply to certificate programs.

DeVry has provided a collaborative classroom environment that gave me the opportunity to experience real world situations and think critically and analytically which I have utilized and applied in my professional career.

Undergraduate Certificate in Medical Billing and Coding – Health Information Coding

Certificate in Medical Billing and Coding – Health Information Coding - TechPath Program

Gain skills healthcare employers seek when searching for medical insurance billers and coders to fill the important role of recording, registering and tracking patient accounts in our online undergraduate certificate programs. With DeVry’s Medical Billing & Coding (MBC) and Medical Billing & Coding – Health Information Coding (MBC-HIC) certificate programs, you can prepare for entry-level coding positions in a growing field.1

If you are new to the health coding world, our MBC certificate can help get you started. If you have any previous coursework or experience, our MBC-HIC certificate can help prepare you for more advanced entry-level positions. You can learn the language of medical billing and coding and prepare to sit for industry-recognized certifications in both programs.

Why is a Certified Coding Associate (CCA) or Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) certification important?

The CCA and CCS certifications are nationally recognized credentials that can better position you for opportunities in the health field. Passing the CCA exam helps candidates separate themselves from non-credentialed health coders and passing the CCS exam helps candidates distinguish themselves from other certified coders and demonstrate a mastery of coding proficiency.

  • Take advantage of our CCA and CCS Certification Prep courses offered within the program.
  • Eligible students who register for and complete the exams may be reimbursed for one exam sitting.

Other Program Benefits:

  • HANDS-ON, VIRTUAL LEARNING PLATFORM. In our MBC programs, you’ll work in AHIMA’s VLab – an internet-based, virtual lab environment that gives you first-hand experience with real-world medical records. You’ll work with actual applications and build skills that can better position you to hit the ground running. It’s part of the TechPath approach we believe in, to better prepare you for what comes next.
  • BUILD YOUR SKILLS. BUILD YOUR CAREER. With our stackable programs, you can earn resume-worthy credentials to get started in your career. If you continue on, you’ll have a head start. Every credit already earned applies to your bachelor’s degree in Technical Management with a Health Information Management specialization.
