Accurate billing is important for prompt reimbursement of services provided by the medical community. A major component of billing revolves around providing the correct ICD-9 diagnosis code to avoid unnecessary delays in payments and reimbursements. Therefore, it is important for the involved parties – be it physicians, medical coders, or insurance claims reviewers – to have access to fast but accurate information when it comes to identifying the correct ICD-9 code. Educus ICD-9 application is one such tool designed to increase efficiency and communication, resulting in more productivity for everyone.
“The goal at Educus.com is to use this thinking as a fundamental principle in building products that will help disperse accurate, up-to-date information within the community with relative ease. Our Complete Reference for ICD-9 is one of the first steps we are taking to achieve our goal without compromising any of the principles involved. I strongly believe that the correct application of the right technology can revolutionize communication and information distribution within the medical community in a big way.” said Dr. Chandra Pemmasani, CEO of Educus.com
