Show Notes

There is ongoing concern that electronic health record (EHR) systems are one of the top contributing causes to patient deaths, complications, and erroneous care plans. During this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, nationally recognized professional physician coder and auditor Terry Fletcher, a member of the ICD10monitor editorial board, reports on the growing issue of EHR-related errors.

The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • Tuesday Focus: Mortality versus Morbidity: The terms “mortality” and “morbidity,” along with “severity of illness (SOI),” are often interwoven. That’s wrong, as you’ll learn when Susan Gatehouse, CEO of Axea Solution, returns to the broadcast.

This Tuesday, George Vancore, system consultant for Florida Blue (Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida) reports on the challenges during the run-up of ICD-10 of achieving end-to-end testing, from the physician’s desktop to the health plan and back.
