Nearly 30 days ago, we posed the question “Are HIM Coding Professionals Qualified to Query for Clinical Validity?” leading up to the July 17 edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, and the responses continue to roll in, nearly unabated.
Specifically, we asked at that time, “are seasoned coding professionals competent or trained well enough to interpret clinical terms and concepts from the medical record?” And many of you responded with an unequivocal “yes.” As a consequence, we will proceed with Part II of this series, when we continue to explore reaction to this question – which, after decades, still remains contentious.
Reporting our lead story during this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be Anny Pang Yuen, author, consultant, and founder of AP Consulting Associates, LLC.
