I have worked in three different offices that have EHR, and all three still needed a coder. EHR systems can be configured in various ways. With some, there is still manual entering of charges, especially in surgical offices. Even if the doctor can enter charges in EHR that are then transferred over to the PM system, they are not infallible and often require a person to audit them. I don't think you should have to worry about losing your job due to EHR.
Hope this helps!
