Fi-Med Adds Nationwide Electronic Prescription Services For Physicians

Ahead of the curve: Fi-Med gets doctors on board with e-prescriptions before Medicare penalties take effectIn the rush to digitize health information and medical records, even prescriptions are making the jump from notepad to network. Soon the squinting and scrawling and folding and crumpling of the physician-pharmacist relationship will be replaced by high-speed data delivery from point-of-service, at time of service, direct to the pharmacy. (No word yet on whether electronic versions of…See More

Checking In From The Road To ICD-10--Paul Spencer, CPC, CPC-H

Posted on October 23, 2009 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

I bid you all Friday greetings from suburban Atlanta.

I'll share the reasons for this week's appearance being from Georgia momentarily, but being on the literal road during what will be my last vacation stop of the year reminds me of another figurative road I currently find myself upon as a coder; the road to the implementation of ICD-10 as the reporting standard for diagnosis and symptomology reporting.

In a little under four years, ICD-9 will be a thing of the past.… Continue

The Riddle Of "Meaningful Use" Soon To Be Defined--Paul Spencer, CPC, CPC-H

Posted on October 16, 2009 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

Mankind, being the one member of the animal kingdom capable of rational thought, has left behind many written documents of the quest for answers and definitions to questions relating to its existence. Despite centuries of thought, many questions still remain, such as:

Where did that sock disappear to from the laundry?

Where did they get the cream for the coconut cream pies on "Gilligan's Island"?

If the afterlife is the perfect place, why do so many people dislike harp… Continue

A Signature Makes It Count --Paul Spencer, CPC, CPC-H

Posted on October 9, 2009 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

Next to me on my desk is my wallet (I see you coming up behind me - BACK OFF!). I'm reaching in and randomly pulling out four items. First, there's my driver's license (the fact that I have one that has yet to be revoked will probably come as a shock to those who have actually seen me drive). On the bottom left hand corner of my license is my signature, making it official.

Next comes my bank-issued debit card. Turning it over, I again note my signature, allowing me to complete… Continue

There has been quite a bit of interest surrounding Frank Cohen’s webinars and so I would like to tell you about the next one he has scheduled for Thursday, June 18th, from 1:00-2:00pm EDT. What I like about these webinars is how current and practical the topics are. I also appreciate Frank’s ability to make even the most complex topics relatively easy to understand, and at no charge they are a great value! I would recommend attending the webinar live so that you can participate in Q. and A. but… Continue

For over 30 years, Frank Cohen has worked as a health care data analyst, knowledge engineer and consultant. He has written many books and is the Senior Analyst for MIT Solutions. I have attended several of Franks webinars, which are scheduled 3-4 times a month, covering such topics as coding, code and modifier utilization, cost accounting, work RVUs, etc. This is a great resource that I want to share with all of you and best of all it’s free! Here is a brief intro to one of his webinars that I… Continue
