Among the topics covered in Codebuster's CPT-4 Outpatient Coding Reference and Study Guide are outpatient guidelines, CPT format and conventions, plus terminology. New for 2012 are a new section on Skin Replacement Surgery found in the chapter on the Integumentary System, and significant updates to chapters on the Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Digestive, and Nervous Systems. This study guide assists HIM professionals prepare for professional coding exams such as the CCS, CCS-P, and CPC exams. The text serves as an excellent resource for coders who need to refresh or expand their CPT-4 coding skills. Coders can look up various diagnoses and procedures for the applicable coding guideline, while having access realistic coding scenarios that are likely to be similar to the coding problems experienced on the job. The book covers the surgery section of CPT-4 and Anesthesiology. Each chapter stands on its own; thus, the reader can go through the chapters in any order. There is a chapter-by-chapter analysis of the various body systems based on the surgery section of the CPT coding book. All chapters contain, in addition to the basic coding guidelines, critical coding questions, coding tips, coding examples, as well as a quiz at the end of each chapter. There is also a section on coding from operative reports. The operative reports are categorized by body system. The book is written in a step-by-step format and is very easy to follow. The content has been chosen to for two purposes: 1. Target the most frequently encountered coding situations in the outpatient setting. 2. Provide the knowledge base to master the outpatient coding concepts tested on the CCS Exam. The text has 236 case scenario short answer questions (CPT codes), 38 operative reports (ICD-9 and CPT codes), and 23 full medical record case studies (ICD-9 and CPT codes). Each question is highly relevant and reflects a coding situation most hospital-based outpatient coders will face. The text strives to ensure the reader understands every diagnosis and procedure discussed: thorough discussion of symptoms, standard treatment protocols, and medications.Coding examples and quizzes help clarify the information presented. 23 Case Studies have been constructed to mimic real-life outpatient medical records. Apply your knowledge from Chapters 1-15 and the Operative Reports to master coding from medical records. Each Case Study presents a complete medical record with associated ancillary documents. The records will test your ability to code in a live setting. Coders can assess their coding efficiency based on their accuracy and speed, critical for on the job practice and exam preparation. The Answer Key contains the rationale for how all codes were determined for the Case Studies. The text is updated every year to reflect the annual CPT coding changes.

Emergency Room Coding will prepare you for the real world of coding in the emergency department setting. The text provides the beginning coder with a solid foundation of how to code ER charts. We focus on the diagnoses and procedures seen in the majority of community-based hospitals. The scenarios in this book are based on real life experiences and will provide the coder with situations s/he will most likely encounter in the emergency room coding environment. The study guide contains 32 emergency room records. The case studies are representative of what is commonly treated in most emergency rooms. Each case study contains an ER report and an answer worksheet. The ER record serves as a good teaching tool for new coders because ER records do not require as much clinical background to code as inpatient records. However, some of the injury cases may present a challenge for new coders. Also, unlike most coding textbooks, this study guide contains a complete ER report with a full explanation, not just thumbnail sketches. Therefore, Emergency Room Coding is more realistic than the one-to-two line diagnostic statements encountered in most coding textbooks. Finally, the Answer Key for the case studies contains a rationale for all code assignments, as well as directions for locating the correct diagnostic and procedure codes. A multiple choice final review quiz is included at the end of this study guide as an opportunity for coders to test their coding skill set. Emergency Room Coding is updated annually to reflect the annual coding changes. Who is this book for? Coders needing to develop ER coding skills Students/Beginning coders trying to get their first job Anyone needing to understand ER code assignment Coding supervisors HIM Directors Auditors/Compliance Officers Case Managers What's Inside? 32 Case Studies Dictated ER Reports Answer Key Rationale Instructions on how to locate codes in ICD-9 Coding Book Final Exam Linda Kobayashi, BA, RHIT, CCS, has been a coder and coding manager for almost 20 years.

Lonely Planet's The Best Things in Life are Free is packed full of money-saving tips, tricks and recommendations for the best-value sights and experiences around the world. From parks, museums and exercise classes that are free, to insider ideas on food and experiences offered at great value, this book features over 60 major cities around the world and promises to help any traveller on a budget to make the most of their trip. Includes parks and gardens, street markets and food trucks, viewing points, museums and galleries, free experiences, spectator sports, city beaches, and much more. For many, free and cheap things are not only appealing but essential for stretching the funds to last as long as possible for an extended journey. Yet, even on a short trip, many unforgettable blasts of freedom and discovery can happen on a thin budget. You quickly realise that cheap can mean much, much better. No fancy Roman trattoria dinner can truly rival the bread and cheese picnic in Villa Celimontana, a short walk from the Colosseum, on a visit to the Eternal City. Needless to say, the monetary value implied in the term 'free' can misrepresent what's on offer within these pages. The quality of an experience, after all, is not always attached to a price tag, such as the priceless experience of unearthing the world's secret wonders, whether that's swimming around Sydney's ocean pools or strolling the tombs and monuments of Delhi's Lodi Gardens. Additionally, it's an exaggeration to say that everything good is 100% free, so you'll find plenty of excellent value cheap things to experience throughout this book as well. Dip into your spare change for classy street food like a choripán (chorizo sandwich) in Buenos Aires, the best views of Hong Kong's skyline from the Star Ferry and a Boston brewery tour. After using the tips in this book, you'll be left with great memories, a happier you and a grateful wallet. Happy travels!
