Learn the Disease Process and Official Reporting Guidelines for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases. In recent years, coding for infectious diseases has become increasingly important for medical professionals. Coding for infectious diseases can be complex and time-consuming, but is essential for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Infectious diseases are caused by pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. When coding for infectious diseases, the ICD-10 classifies them into two major categories: infectious and parasitic diseases (A00-B99) and certain infectious and parasitic diseases (A00-B99). The first category includes diseases such as influenza, chickenpox, and HIV/AIDS, while the second includes diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, and tuberculosis.

When coding for infectious diseases, it is important to include all relevant information. It is also important to include any tests or procedures that were performed to diagnose the disease, and any treatments that were prescribed.
