The ?Surgical Billing: Get it to the Coder? app is meant to simplify how healthcare providers get information to their coders. Currently, most providers write down the procedures on an index card and carry it around in their pockets, for days and sometimes weeks before turning the information to the coder. These notes tend to be illegible and imprecise. If not turned in, the coder depends on dictation. Thus, no card, no dictation means no billing because no record. This is especially true for emergency cases and night time and weekend cases.
