“The updated TurboCoder means Clinical Coders, Health Information Managers and Clinicians have the latest and most accurate coding information at their fingertips. This is critical for the fast, accurate coding of medical records required for Activity Based Funding (ABF) due for national implementation from 1 July 2012.” EIS spokesman Alfred Papallo said.
He further stated, “we constantly receive feedback from our users saying ‘we love TurboCoder for its speed and ease of use’. Coders find it has the comfortable look and feel of the books enabling them to search the classification with the results clearly displayed in-context, as well as - fast download, fast searching, easy navigation, powerful annotation, auto updating and the ability to Collaborate in Context™.
EIS is committed to supporting TurboCoder for the life of the edition, so our customers can be confident they always have the latest information. We are also committed to working with our clients to continually improve our products and services, and have implemented many useful enhancements from their suggestions. And recently negotiated the rights to include the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) in our next update as an additional information resource.”
EIS eComPress versions of the ICD health classification are currently used throughout the world including the core classification of ICD-10, by the World Health Organization (WHO). It’s also the preferred choice of coders in Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia and exclusively in the case of Ireland.
EIS has recently released eComPress TurboCoder versions of ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM for use in the United States. ICD-10-CM is scheduled for implementation in 2014, but is required now for the intensive training and preparation programs taking place across the US. Feedback from the US is very positive with negotiation in train with the major professional bodies and commercial suppliers in the health field.
