    Default Question....

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know of any visual aids/interactive tools, other than reading a study guide, that I can use to get a better understanding of ER coding?

    Default ER Coding References

    If you go to Barnes and Noble they have a section where the coding books and study guides are that you can acutually by visual aids such as flash cards with pictures---pocket handbooks.......

    I got a couple and they helped me out a great deal for studying.
    Carol J. Buck is a very popular author for these things, I would look for stuff from her.

    I hope this helps.

    I think there is nothing better that to actually see what we do in the ER. Ask if you can sit in the er for a day. Follow the nurses around when they do a procedure. I really think even spending even one day gives you a different perspective. Most coders are not nurses so i do not mean to imply that real life experience is required to be an excellent coder......i have just always liked seeing things first hand..just a suggestion. Good luck
