    Default ED Coders ! I really need your advice
    Clearnace Sale
    I am about to embark on a new coding experience - ED

    Up until now I have been mostly out patient coder : free standing facility ...can you give me a "crash course"

    Seriously ...can anyone offer advice on the most important differences - where I can go to find info when struggling - books, cd's, any help possible ??

    Is anyone familiar with MedLearn's books - they have a 2 book set on ED coding that looks really good...but looks can be deceiving ...and very expensive ...

    I want to succeed and know that I can ... with your help

    thank you so much !!

    Sparkles thanks for responding!
    Honestly I don't know the answer to that question ... but that profee sounds like something I might have heard ...I think that is what it is ... the more I think about it ..

    Can you give me some insight into what they mean ?

    up until now I have been an OP coder in a free standing facility different will it be ?

    thanks for whatever advice or direction you can give me !

    Hai Ms terie,

    The below mentioned websites gives you a good knowledge on ED coding , you are already in coding field so you can learn ED coding quickly.
    any way books websites , etc gives you understanding the coding but you have to do the ED coding practically .

    Thank you! Can anyone tell me any info on using the 3m
    system? Advice, tidbits on the good , bad and the ugly facets
    to this system... My experience has been with SIS, mysis, vision
    all out pt or physician systems ...

    I use the 3M system at our facility. I also do ED outpatient coding. 3M is great and if you will be doing the E/M levels as well you can go under the procedure tab, type E and it will give you questions to answer to choose your E/M level. ( I think the questions are tricky though). Good luck.
