ICD-9 Coding Automation Software Saves Thousands Of Man Hours

Custom ICD-9 Coding automation software saves clinics thousands to millions of man hours. The software reads the file of thousands of reports and fee sheets and separates them into collated exams. The parsing engine pulls information like procedure codes, doctor up-ins, POS, Dept, etc.. into a data file associated with each exam. This process happens nightly. The original source files are stored in a backup location.

In the morning, coders come in and are presented each exam in order of date, insurance type, and department (POS-DEPT). This saves hours in printing and sorting by hand. The coder need only look at the procedure code and skim the report to enter the appropriate ICD-9 code and hit next. If additional procedures need to be added, they can be on the fly. Data checks are performed before the exam is passed on to the next process. Coders can add a note to each exam for reference at other stages of the process. The report and fee sheet can be toggled for viewing with a single click of the mouse.

The exam then goes to enhancing for insurance and demographic verification. There are 2 virtual bins for exams that are missing information or have follow up exams associated with them. Fields can still be edited at this point for correcting up-ins and attending physician codes.

The exam goes to charging where it is presented again in sorted order. The exam can be entered into the charging software’s fields manually or using a custom add-on, can be pasted with a single click of the mouse.

That night, all batched/charged exams are converted into pdf format and stored in a searchable history folder.

This software can easily double or triple coding and charging speed.

Reasons Why Responsive Web Design Is Recommended for Every eCommerce Business

Chances are there that you have heard the phrase ‘responsive web design’ quite a few times. What is responsive design? It is a web design trend which is predicted to remain dominant for years to come. Responsive design is a set of techniques and tools used for making websites fit for every screen, small and big. Web designers around the world have realized the importance of designing websites in this way. They recommend receptive websites for the eCommerce business owners. This is because web surfers always prefer the websites that can be viewed on any device, whether it is a laptop or a mobile phone. These days, many people are surfing the web from portable devices such as Smartphone and receptive websites that are adaptable in nature are what they actually like. Here below are five good reasons why this type of websites is recommended for every eCommerce business.

Flexible web sites: Websites that are built in this way fit well any screen size. There was a time when websites were primarily designed for desktop computers. But with the emergence of smaller and portable devices, web designers felt the need to design websites that are flexible and can be opened and viewed from any device. Responsive design was the answer.

Features are easy to find: As per usability factor is concerned, these websites are far more advanced than their precursors. All the features of the websites can be easily found unlike desktop-only websites that were like maze games for many mobile web surfers.

Cost-effective design: Designers do not need to develop multiple versions of a website now. Powered by latest tools and technologies, modern day designers ensure that one website fits all screens and that significantly cuts down the cost.

Fluid designs: Text content and images used on these sites are adaptable with new technologies and scope for further changes/modification remains wide open for the website maintenance professionals.

Lower bounce rate: ‘Bounce Rate’ is the percentage of website visitors who leave a site without fully or partly exploring it. Bounce rate increases due to several reasons including poor navigation and slow loading of web pages. Responsive web design professionals ensure lower bounce rate by keeping the navigation easier and increasing the usability quotient of a website.

Should you hire a responsive web design professional?

You should have proper understanding of what responsive web design is and its significance in eCommerce website designing. You should not hire a professional without properly knowing the characteristics of this kind of websites. Otherwise, you might get misled by counterfeit designers. The best way to know about responsive design is to look up in Wikipedia and other authoritative websites. Do some research on the web first and then decide whether you really need a responsive website or an inflexible website might work well for your eCommerce business. However, as mobile users are increasing by leaps and bounds, it is highly recommended to design responsive business websites.

Home Property Maintenance – How To Prevent Condensation

Home property maintenance is primarily about preventing problems with the structure of your house, and one of the most annoying problems is condensation.

The amount of moisture that air can hold depends on its temperature. Air at 15 degrees Celsius, for example, can hold about twice as much moisture as air at 5 degrees. So if moist air in your house cools, then it has to shed some of that moisture, and the coldest surfaces are those that will attract that moisture.

If condensation forms on the inside surfaces of your walls or windows then temperature fluctuation, combined with damp air, is the likely cause. How, then, can you prevent this from happening?

Before we can answer this, consider these four factors.

1. The thermal insulation of your walls and windows.
2. The amount of heat you produce in your house (especially the kitchen and the bathroom).
3. The amount of ventilation you have in your house.
4. The amount of moisture you produce, e.g. by cooking or having a shower.

Now we’re getting closer to finding the cause of your condensation. What most people tend to forget is that when you evaporate water, whether by boiling it when cooking food, by drying clothes in front of the gas fire, or by whatever other means, it doesn’t just disappear. It goes somewhere.

And it’s worse because in the meantime it’s invisible. At least it is until it manifests itself in the form of condensation on your walls or windows.

So you can see that maintaining your home property properly depends in large part on recognising this and dealing with it.

How can you do that? Here’s a quick checklist.

1. Prevent falls in temperature of the air in your house while it remains in the house. Only by becoming colder will the air start to release some of the water vapour locked up inside it. Of course, this may be too expensive, in winter at least, so perhaps you should consider the next point.

2. Increase ventilation in the area or room affected. If you can “ship out” the damp air while it is still warm enough to retain its moisture then you won’t get condensation. Even if the air that replaces it is cooler it will also be drier so it won’t cause a problem.

3. Increase the thermal insulation of the walls and windows. Double glazing your windows will normally solve the problem as far as the windows themselves are concerned. The inside glass surface is not so affected by the outside temperature, and so it is warmer and less prone to having water vapour deposited on it. Do watch out, though, for damp on the metal frames. Walls, however, can only be properly insulated by being covered with something like wood panelling (not very popular these days) or skilfully applied wallpaper.

Sometimes, especially where the house is empty and unheated during the day and heated up during the evening, you get a “cold patch” on a wall, where condensation forms for no apparent reason. It may be where a lintel is set at the top of a window or door.

Here usually the only thing you can do is to apply a lightweight lining onto the surface. This will warm up and cool down much faster than the wall itself, and thereby prevent water droplets from condensing there.

This is, however, a short term solution, and, as with many problems involving dampness, you may be best advised to call in a builder to assist with your home property maintenance in this area.
