A pair of French engineers--outsiders to the world of coding
theory--astonished the insiders with their invention of what they called turbo codes, which come within a hair's breadth of Shannon's limit.
We won't disagree that there would be some cost to making the change, but we don't have a choice as a country," said Sue Bowman, director of coding
policy and compliance for the American Health Information Management Association, a nonprofit association of more than 46,000 members that manage patient health records and databases for providers, health plans, governments and provider organizations.
When the surgeon performs a laser, radiofrequency, or cautery procedure, the only coding

With bar coding
, the counters scan each item's bar code and enter the resulting count on a keypad.
For cases where the bill is more than $1,000, have the coding

But if Hebert and his collaborators are correct, DNA bar coding
could have a tremendous impact on both scientists and nonscientists with a need to recognize different species.
Most payers would agree that CPT coding
accuracy has improved remarkably over the past five years.
In the digital world, the ease in the implementation of various coding
algorithms is leading the way for the adoption of convolution codes, as compared to block codes.
Almost every time digital information is transmitted or stored in a real-world application, some form of error coding
is required," says P.
As previously disclosed by the company, the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) has been pursuing a single, all-inclusive Category I CPT code for UFE to supplant the multiple component coding
currently utilized by physicians.
Department of Defense and NASA plan to try out coding
systems that pack in much more information than current bar codes.
This improved workflow minimizes the need for hand coding
, which in turn decreases errors and shortens the time typically needed for on-target rapid prototyping and production code deployment, two factors that are critical to successful delivery of sophisticated electronic products in the automotive industry.
Business Dynamics Limited (BDL), a full-service provider of practice management services, tools and education for the spine specialist, announced today they will be showcasing CaseCoder[TM], the first hand-held spine coding
management system designed to ease the tedious process of spine coding
, at the North American Spine Society 21st annual meeting.
