The fear in the coding profession is that the EMR is a machine that will replace us. If you keep doing what your doing today, it might. Technology will certainly change the way we do our work but it will not replace us. This presentation will explore what a skills and knowledge a coder must attain to be more valuable in this new environment. A coder does not need to know everything about how an EMR works but they do need to be experts in the part of the EMR that impacts documentation and coding. The presenter has 18 years of EMR experience and has navigated these waters with the coders that support the 1,000 physicians in his group to the safe harbor of 95% accuracy in procedure, E&M and diagnosis coding.
