Evaluation of LOINC for representing constitutional cytogenetic test result reports. (1/168)

Genetic testing is becoming increasingly important to medical practice. Integrating genetics and genomics data into electronic medical records is crucial in translating genetic discoveries into improved patient care. Information technology, especially Clinical Decision Support Systems, holds great potential to help clinical professionals take full advantage of genomic advances in their daily medical practice. However, issues relating to standard terminology and information models for exchanging genetic testing results remain relatively unexplored. This study evaluates whether the current LOINC standard is adequate to represent constitutional cytogenetic test result reports using sample result reports from ARUP Laboratories. The results demonstrate that current standard terminology is insufficient to support the needs of coding cytogenetic test results. The terminology infrastructure must be developed before clinical information systems will be able to handle the high volumes of genetic data expected in the near future.  (+info)

Using a statistical natural language Parser augmented with the UMLS specialist lexicon to assign SNOMED CT codes to anatomic sites and pathologic diagnoses in full text pathology reports. (2/168)

To address the problem of extracting structured information from pathology reports for research purposes in the STRIDE Clinical Data Warehouse, we adapted the ChartIndex Medical Language Processing system to automatically identify and map anatomic and diagnostic noun phrases found in full-text pathology reports to SNOMED CT concept descriptors. An evaluation of the system's performance showed a positive predictive value for anatomic concepts of 92.3% and positive predictive value for diagnostic concepts of 84.4%. The experiment also suggested strategies for improving ChartIndex's performance coding pathology reports.  (+info)

A combination code is a code that allows the medical records coder (an entire profession has evolved to review the medical record, apply the rules for assigning billing codes, and create the final set of billing codes submitted to the third-party payer for payment) to assign several diagnoses (or, more properly classes of diagnoses) to a patient in one fell swoop. In addition, it helps to avoid the problem of choosing one diagnosis category as the primary diagnosis. The coder may assign a combination code as the primary diagnosis, and voila, multiple diagnosis categories are all at once the primary diagnosis, with no messy decisions about which one was the most important or proximate cause of the medical care provided to the patient ...

They identified a few steps that were unnecessary, such as running an electrocardiogram and assigning a room, and eliminated them. They also realized that some steps, such as inserting an intravenous line and running lab work, could take place after the scan. They saved time by ensuring everyone on the stroke code team knew in advance the role theyd play in getting the patient to the CT scanner and, ultimately, treatment.. Like actors rehearsing for a play, they ran mock stroke codes with one staff member playing patient and everyone else acting out their assigned roles. When they found snags, they fixed them and ran more mock stroke codes, shaving off minute after minute.. There was a lot of resistance initially because we were changing peoples habits, Tai said. She employed a host of management tactics, but perhaps her most effective tool was humility..

The need for good documentation brings us back to the term wordsmith. Again, both the coder and the physician/provider will need to add this to their job proficiencies. A good way to get the conversation started with your physicians/providers, is to conduct a review of the current physician/provider documentation by the coder. The coder can develop, or may have a feel, as to how best to ascertain the top 5 or top 10 commonly mis-coded or difficult to code diagnoses in the practice. If the coders are currently struggling with appending these difficult diagnoses now, utilizing ICD-9, this challenge now is amplified by dual coding/cross coding with ICD-10cm codes. Document and analyze what is found. This quick analysis will help define where better documentation is needed for both the coder and provider. Below outlines this quick process to help enhance communication processes for both the coder and the physician/provider of care ...
Background: Pre-stroke disability is expected to influence outcome in stroke. Enrollment of clinical trials in stroke is frequently limited to patients with pre-stroke modified Rankin score (mRS) of ≤2. Our objective is to explore evaluation, treatment and outcomes in stroke patients with pre-stroke mRS 3-5.. Methods: We included all patients from the acute stroke code database (UCSD SPOTRIAS from Mar 2005 - Jul 2013 with known pre-stroke mRS, baseline NIHSS and 90-day mRS and confirmed diagnoses: Acute ischemic stroke (AIS), transient ischemic attack (TIA), intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). We assessed onset time to arrival, arrival time to- (CT, exam, treatment, decision) and outcomes (90-day mRS, discharge destination) by pre-stroke disability stratified by mRS (Group 1: mRS 3-5, Group 2: mRS 0-2). Good outcome was defined as discharge to home or acute rehab, or return to pre-stroke mRS or better.. Results: A total of 572 patients with AIS (416, 73%), TIA (133, 23%), and ICH (23, 4%) were ...
One year ago I came across a job I was not aware of: medical coder. In Switzerland, but also in the US, medical reports, written by medical doctors in natural medical language, are translated by medical coders into a series of diagnosis codes using the ICD (International Classification of Diseases). There are other databases of codes to delineate operations performed (e.g. during surgery); CHOP in Switzerland is one example of such a catalogue. Medical coders are highly skilled professionals; they need to understand medical terms and classify them into precise codes, like J13 for Pneumonia due to Streptococcus pneumoniae and J12 for Viral pneumonia, not elsewhere classified.. Medical coding is a highly skilled profession in part because the assignment of code has a deep economic impact: every code has a cost associated with it (cost of treatment, cost of the actions taken during a surgery etc.). It is therefore quite expensive for the clinics to convert reports into billing codes to be ...

Wow, I had not heard of this before you wrote it. So, I looked into it and found it is not something YOU are missing. It is something that the billing services software is missing when they are checking for acceptable diagnosis codes for 22551. I decided to look at the diagnosis crosscodes for 22551 on the coding software we use at KZA. I found even that software does not list any cervical disc disorder diagnosis codes addressing pathology for C2-C3 or C3-C4 as acceptable for 22551. Thats so crazy and must be an oversight in the software. I suggest you ask/request your billing service to go ahead and bill the diagnosis code anyway and override whatever error message they are getting. Hopefully coding software vendors will take note and correct this issue.. *This response is based on the best information available as of 4/11/19.. ...

ICD-9 billing codes have been proven to be ineffective classifiers in the past [1-3]. Table 2 shows that ICD-9 reached an AUC of 0.897 with an 89.655% accuracy on the cross validated set. On the external test set, ICD-9 performed, effectively, the same, reaching a 90% accuracy and a 0.900 AUC. Predescribed, ICD-9 codes error rates were lowest at 17.1%, but the results show a lower error rate than this. It is believed that this lower error rate is due to the limited number of representative ICD-9 codes used for SLE at MUSC. The AUC and accuracy for the ICD-9 billing code classification have similar values because there is no probability in determining SLE status from an ICD-9 code. This is because of the pre-described method for determining whether or not a patient has SLE: If a patient had at least one mention of the SLE ICD-9, then they were classified as having it.. We also utilized the naïve Bayes classifier as a baseline algorithm alongside the ICD-9 billing codes. One of the main ...
Back in 2009 I wrote a four-part series about my own personal experience with this nightmare of billing codes while shopping for health care for a colonoscopy. I did my homework and spoke to many people (in the doctors office, the doctors billing office, several insurance company people, and their supervisors) and had detailed discussions for several weeks all before I even saw an actual health professional like a nurse or doctor, just to get an idea of how much it would cost. And after all that, I still got an unexpected bill. In tracking this down, I found out from a low-level insurance company employee (the people who answer the customer-service phones) that it was because the doctors office had used a billing code number that was different from the one they should have entered. Even after the doctors office sent in the correction, the insurance company would not accept the change and a supervisor whom I spoke to was even annoyed that I knew the billing code numbers and said that I should ...

The US has used ICD-10-CM since October 1, 2015.[22] This national variant of ICD-10 was provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), and the use of ICD-10-CM codes are now mandated for all inpatient medical reporting requirements. There are over 70,000 ICD-10-CM codes, which is up from around 14,000 ICD-9-CM codes.[22]. The use of ICD-10 for coding of death certificates and mortality data was mandated in the United States beginning in 1999.[23]. The deadline for the United States to begin using Clinical Modification ICD-10-CM for diagnosis coding and Procedure Coding System ICD-10-PCS for inpatient hospital procedure coding was set at October 1, 2015,[24][25] which is a year later than a previous 2014 deadline.[26] Before that 2014 deadline, the previous deadline has been a year before that on October 1, 2013.[27][28] All HIPAA covered entities must make the change; a pre-requisite to ICD-10-CM is the adoption of EDI ...
