The coding process is a transformation of a diagnosis and procedure into digits and numeric and alphanumeric characters. Medical record personnel as code givers are responsible for the accuracy of the code which in turn affects the payment provided by insurance. Failure to provide the correct code can cause payments to be delayed, declined, or even restricted. For this reason, training of coders in hospitals is needed so that the accuracy of the code increases. This community engagement is carried out using community education methods in the form of presentations, questions and answers, practice questions and discussions on topics including: abortion, selection of the main diagnosis in high-risk pregnancies, signs of labor without ending in labor, birth cases, maternal care, hypertension in pregnancy, diabetes in pregnancy, infection and anemia during pregnancy, childbirth, and the puerperium. The average score of participants in coding the main diagnosis in 10 cases was 15.3 (maximum score of 20). Based on these results, it can be concluded that Obstetric Diagnosis Coding Training is going very well and is successful in increasing understanding and accuracy of medical recorders.
