Abstract

Diagnostic coding now factors into reimbursement, quality assessments, reputational metrics, and epidemiologic analysis; therefore, it is more critical than ever that neurologists are accurate and precise in their coding. In addition to being the means though which most neurologists are capturing this information, the electronic health record can offer multiple tools to assist in these efforts. With conscientious design, build, and implementation of the electronic health record, diagnostic coding can be effortless, even for the most complex and varied of conditions seen in an outpatient neurology visit.
