The professional practice experience (PPE) is a supervised practical experience in a health information management department in a acute and/or non-acute healthcare facility. The focus of the PPE is to provide the student with practical experience in ICD-10CM/PCS and CPT/HCPCS coding, computerized information systems, billing and reimbursement, and the electronic health record. Students will have supplemental practice through practice exercises to enhance all aspects of coding areas.
