Global AI in Medical Coding Market is valued at approximately USD 2.06 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 13.7% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Artificial intelligence (AI) in medical coding refers to the incorporation of AI technology into the process of medical coding. Medical coding is the process of standardizing medical diagnoses, treatments, and services into codes. These codes are necessary for data analysis, billing, and reimbursement in the healthcare sector. AI technologies are being increasingly utilized in medical coding to automate and enhance various aspects of the coding process, leading to increased accuracy, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Accordingly, the increase in demand for a standardized language to reduce insurance claim fraud and misinterpretations, and the rising focus on increasing the effectiveness of hospital billing and coding operations are primarily attributed to the global market expansion. Additionally, the rapid penetration of efficient healthcare solutions, coupled with the growing volume of healthcare data is augmenting the growth of the AI in medical coding market during the estimated period.
The rapid shift towards remote work and telehealth services has propelled the demand for these services, allowing remote coders to access and analyze medical records effectively. AI algorithms have been essential in accelerating the coding process, rapidly retrieving pertinent data, and lightening the workload for human programmers. According to Statista, in 2019, the telemedicine sector was estimated to value around USD 49.9 billion around the world. Also, it is anticipated to grow and is expected to reach about USD 277.9 billion by the year 2025. Moreover, the growing advancements in Natural Language Processing (NLP), as well as the rising integration with Electronic Health Records (EHRs) present various lucrative opportunities over the forecasting years. However, the growing inefficiency in medical billing and revenue cycle management, along with increasing privacy concerns are challenging the market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
The key regions considered for the Global AI in Medical Coding Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market in 2022 owing to the growing burden of chronic diseases in various countries and the expansion of healthcare infrastructure.

Recent Developments in the Market:
Ø In May 2023, Codametrix and Henry Ford Health launched their joint Autonomous Bedside Pro (ABP) medical coding system. The ABP technology enables doctors to record clinical documentation in real-time, which is subsequently examined by AI algorithms to provide precise legal codes. This novel technology decreases coding backlogs, increases productivity, and improves coding accuracy by removing the need for manual coding and optimizing workflow.
Ø In March 2023, Clinion, a healthcare technology business, unveiled a clinical trial medical coding system driven by AI. The solution improves clinical trial medical coding’s effectiveness, precision, and speed. Advanced AI algorithms are capable of rapidly analyzing and interpreting a high number of clinical trial data, extracting pertinent information, and assigning suitable codes, which substantially decreases the time and effort needed for coding.
