Start a rewarding new career in the healthcare industry with a course from our Medical coding school! As a Medical Coding Specialist, you’ll help connect doctors, patients, hospitals and insurance companies. Without trained Medical Coders who can translate every diagnosis, procedure and supply into a handy code, the healthcare industry would come to a stand-still. And because nearly every visit to the doctor or hospital requires properly coded documentation, the demand for Medical Coding Specialists continues to grow.

Analyzing clinical statements and transforming verbal description of diseases, injuries, conditions, and procedures into numerical designation is called CODING. The purpose of this process is financial reimbursement. Hence this is also called as “Insurance coding.”This is designed by W.H.O for the classification of morbidity and mortality information, for statistical purpose, for indexing of hospital records by diseases and operations, for data storage and retrieval. It also provides access for epidemiological studies. This field generates Medical Coders who specialize in training program and a certification process. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) offer certification in this field. A Clinical coder or Diagnostic coder is the one who analyzes clinical statements and assigns codes from a clinical classification. To describe a clinical picture of the patient, the code should be more precise than those needed only for statistical groupings. So the coder should have the knowledge of medical terminology. The development of the required skills takes both formative and summative training alongside experience.

“Good Clothes” | Wulff's Dispatch – Wulff's Rangers

The “Indian Dress” we have been discussing would have been “working” clothes for the Virginia troops that adopted that style of clothing on the Forbes Campaign in 1758. A good example of this way of thinking is referenced when Pennsylvania ranger James Smith left his “Good Clothes” at the home of his friend George Adams in 1766 when he and a band of backwoodsmen headed out for a hunt in southern Kentucky. Smith and his band wore hunting shirts, leather breeches, and “Indian boots.”

Although, as we see from the Washington quotes from my last post, cloth for things like shirts, leggings, and breech clouts was readily available, but cloth manufactured on the frontier may have been used as well. Irish immigrant James McCullough wrote numerous times in his journal from 1750 to 1758 about making a living as a weaver in the backcountry of Pennsylvania along Conococheagque Creek turning out “Chaker, hickrey, and white shirtin, stript linsey for breeches, bain and tow cloth to make sacks, and girthin for horse blankets.

During times of alarm concerning native raids McCullough would conceal his “loom shafts, wolling reed, pulley Stocks, and other youtencels” in hollow trees to save his future means of livelihood.

Another interesting reference concerning “linsey/Woolsey” cloth, made by combining linen and wool when weaving, a common frontier cloth,comes from Olive Boone in 1776 in Kentucky. “The combination of a nettle warp with buffalo wool filling was very strong, and socks made of Buffalo wool alone were quite soft and wear very well.”

Breast tomosynthesis adoption uneven across the U.S.

Dr. Lara Hardesty and colleagues from the University of Colorado at Denver conducted a survey among members of the Society of Breast Imaging to assess the use of DBT and the criteria clinicians apply to decide which patients will be offered the technology. Although breast tomosynthesis is becoming more common in clinical practice, it is still a limited resource, and a variety of factors influence how practices make use of DBT, the group found (JACR, June 2014, Vol. 11:6, pp. 594-599).

“When we sent out our surveys, the technology had been approved for about a year,” she told “We could tell that the use of DBT was spreading, but there wasn’t much information on how people were using it.”

Hardesty and colleagues created an online survey for physician members of SBI. The survey included questions about the availability of DBT at the participant’s practice, whether DBT was used for clinical care or research, clinical decision rules guiding patient selection for DBT, costs associated with the technology, plans to obtain DBT, and breast imaging practice characteristics.

In all, 670 members responded, for a response rate of 37%. Of these, 200 (30%) reported using breast tomosynthesis, with 89% using DBT clinically. Academic practices, those with more than three breast imagers, or those with seven or more mammography units were more likely to report DBT use.

As for criteria used to select patients who would undergo DBT, 107 participants (68.2%) used exam type (screening versus diagnostic) to make the decision, 25 (15.9%) used mammographic density, and 25 (15.9%) used breast cancer risk, according to Hardesty and colleagues.

Currently, there is no CPT code for DBT, Hardesty said. Of the 177 survey respondents using DBT clinically, 47 (26.6%) charged patients an upfront fee for the service, 122 (68.9%) did not charge at all, and eight (4.5%) declined to answer. Fees for DBT ranged from $25 to $250, with the average fee being $69.

Among the survey respondents not using breast tomosynthesis in clinical practice, 62.3% planned to begin using it in the future: 12.6% planned to do so within six months, 19.5% within six to 12 months, and 29% within one to two years. About a quarter of the survey respondents did not know when they planned to obtain DBT, and 14% said they would add the technology once a valid CPT code was available.

The use of breast tomosynthesis varied geographically as well. The majority of DBT users were in the Northeast and the West (36.9% and 32.8%, respectively), with the Midwest coming in third and the South fourth (25% and 18.4%).

Although breast tomosynthesis has made the transition from a research technology to a clinical one, it’s far from being the standard of care, according to the authors.

“Even among those using DBT for patient care, only 11.3% reported performing all clinical mammograms using DBT,” they wrote. “Several barriers block adoption. The cost of converting all of a practice’s existing mammography units to DBT units at one time is likely prohibitive and has probably slowed adoption. [And] without a CPT code, radiologists may be reluctant to adopt the new technology and pass the costs on to patients.”

Clinical guidelines for breast tomosynthesis usage would help practices determine whether to adopt DBT and what patients would benefit the most from the technology, Hardesty and colleagues wrote. And a reimbursement code would help.

“Standardization of reimbursement for DBT via the adoption of a CPT code would help practitioners make adoption decisions based on science, rather than cost,” the group concluded.
