Too many people teaching coding have a habit of confusing people and making something much more complicated than it really is. Progress Notes do not have to be lengthy and time consuming for physicians, regardless of the EMR system you're using.
We've sold tens of thousands of these sliderules since 1998 to physicians, billers, managers and hospitals. Even the Veterans Administration bought these from us for their VA Clinics.
Our pink/white billing sliderules are 3 1/4" tall by 6 1/2" wide (fits in shirt pocket) Each sliderule complies with the 1995 & the 1997 Guidelines.
Why do coders and billers confuse the doctors, when E&M coding is really simple? Billing sliderules can teach the doctor how to code properly with the 1995 and 1997 guidelines without using terms like detailed, problem focused, etc... The billing slide rules will help keep it simple, so they appreciate it & they'll really do a better job. Some coding tools are complicated, but these billing slide-rules reduce the confusion with E&M documentation.

In-patient Consultation Codes 99251 - 99255
SNF Codes 99304 - 99310
These billing sliderules, which fit into a pocket, (that's good news for making them easy to carry- but bad news since doctors lose them easily) use the 1995 and 1997 E&M documentation guidelines. In EVERY seminar that we have used these to teach physicians documentation, we hear from the majority of physicians present, the following statement: "I've been undercoding without the billing sliderules." That means the billing sliderules are helping the physicians optimize their income. Just the increase on one office visit more than pays for the billing slide rules and postage and handling.
You can order these sliderules used by thousands for $12.50 each and that includes postage and shipping. 30% discounts for orders of 50 or more.
Sales tax must be charged on customers in Texas, per law.
