More importantly, why you shouldn't waste too much time or money on ICD-10 minutia!

The answer to why you should not waste too much time or effort on the minutia codes of ICD-10 has a lot to do with how great most EMR's are with the codes.  I was playing around with my EMR as I was seeing an ankle sprain in my office today for an initial visit and this is what I got in a split second after clicking on the diagnosis of ankle sprain:
I have to say, if your EMR is not doing this for you with such ease, you may have more difficulty than it is worth navigating through the ICD-10 changes.

Yes, you should have quick reference for your most common diagnosis and procedures for podiatry.  But don't get lost in all the codes, if your EMR is up to snuff the codes will be there for you when someone walks in with a displaced talar neck fracture.

I recommend playing around with your EMR and making sure it is already set to do this for you, and if not you need to find out why.  This is a process that your EMR should be ready for well before October 1st, 2015.

  3. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
