The medical coding industry in India has been witnessing a constant boom since 2019 with the help of government schemes like the Ayushman Bharat Yojana that aims to promote digitisation and the adoption of new-age technologies like RCM and RPA in the healthcare sector. However, the future trends for the industry also paint a very optimistic picture, with nearly 80 per cent of healthcare businesses outsourcing their services from India, with the numbers only likely to go up.
