EP Coding

EP Coding is a mobile app for Apple or Android devices that can be used to select appropriate CPT® codes and ICD-10 codes for cardiac electrophysiology (EP) procedures.  The coding of these procedures is complex and changes each year.   Physicians often need to enter these codes themselves directly into Electronic Health Record (EHR) programs and are often at a loss as to which codes to enter (I write from personal experience).  For a full discussion of the rationale of the app and the rationale for using a subset of copyrighted CPT® codes in the app, see this post.

EP Coding is intended to help United States EP physicians enter the correct codes in an EHR system.  It is not intended for professional coders nor is it a substitute for the AMA official CPT® documentation.

After finding your site and reading several of your blogs I am inspired to be more brilliant. Your insightfulness to technology mixed with your professional intelligence is the closest I have witnessed to what modern day living in balance with technology really should look like. Please keep writing, sharing and inspiring as demonstration for hope of the future.

Thank you Dena! That’s probably the nicest comment I have every received. I am tempted to frame it and put it on my wall so that I can look at it whenever I get down. I’ll try not to disappoint you!
