Overview

The value of CPT language extends outside the United States 

CPT® International

The standard for communicating health care procedures and services

The CPT code set streamlines communication across health care settings and informs the predictive analytics on medical procedures and services. Governments, health care providers, tech vendors and payers utilize the CPT code set within their health management systems.  CPT coding is trusted to support payment processes and inform public health planning and research. A standardized, comprehensive language can unlock administrative efficiencies and reduce reporting challenges so health care providers can center care around their patients.    

The CPT code set is the language of medicine today and the code to its future. It is rigorously updated by the CPT Editorial Panel to align with the dynamics of modern medicine.  The CPT code set adds to the momentum of medical innovation by reflecting the latest health care advancements available to patients.
