    Cool cpt codes 96102 and 96103

    I work for a large group of psychiatrists. We are in process of purchasing some software to do the psychological testing. 96102 says with qualified health care professional interpretation and report, administered by "technician" and 96103 says administered by a "computer" with qualified health care professional interpretation and report. Can somebody please define "technician" and "health care professional". We obviously don't want to utilize a psychologist or social worker to sit the patient in front of the computer and run the software for the patients to answer the questions. What kind of personnel could we legally use? Thanks tons.
