Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago – Becker ASC Conference 2010

Are you in Chicago?

Do you work at an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) or are you interested in learning how OpNote will work for your Orthopedic, Spine and/or Pain Management practice?

Come and visit mTuitive at the 8th Annual Orthopedic, Spine and Pain Management Driven ASC Conference which is being held Today, June 10, through Saturday, June 12th, at The Westin (on Michigan Ave).

Christopher and Colin will be on hand to talk to anyone interested in learning more about OpNote and they are ready to answer any questions, including those pertaining to pricing, interoperability and implementation. Also present at the conference will be Dr. John Mattson, our orthopedic surgical consultant who will show everyone how he uses OpNote in his orthopedic procedures and how easy it is to create defaults – all on his own iPad!

Becker ASC Review is a great source of information about ASCs – including news, articles, editorials and developing products. Definitely recommend heading over to that site if you’re interested in finding out more about the growing community of ambulatory surgery centers.

Also, we’ll be tweeting about the conference throughout the next three days, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, or simply look for the conference tag #ORTHOASC2010.

Coding in the Time of EHRs

While developing OpNote, we’ve encountered some push back and criticism from the various organizations. But the most pointed barbs of criticism have come from medical coders at the hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). Based on the way that we have constructed OpNote, physicians automatically capture the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes. While the coding is evident – and users can search by codes, if so desired – surgeons are not forced to navigate through codes, but instead they find the proper procedure and diagnosis by using words and common phrases.

Some coders have balked at the idea of doctors coding their own procedure. There are nuances to the coding structures that could easily be missed by those who have not made it the primary focus of their jobs to know how codes are generated or what factors in the report lead to changes in the coding process. The number of physicians that confidently know medical coding is increasing, but there will always be various subtleties to coding that really only come from education and experience. However – that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement.
