Physicians Productivity if Crisis Worsens – switch from Dragon to Dictation
If your physicians become overloaded with their COVID-19 response, consider switching them from voice recognition (e.g. Dragon) to dictation with Sherritt’s Transcriptionists typing directly into their EMR. This could significantly reduce the physicians’ workloads.
Telephone Fee Codes for COVID-19 Diagnosis
Our Sherritt Billing Specialists are advising their individual physician Clients on the effective application of telephone Fee Codes and scheduling telephone visits. Call Sherritt for assistance.
For patients or physicians in self-isolation, Alberta has replaced the 03.01T, 03.01S and 03.05JR Health Service Codes (HSC) with one NEW HSC 03.01AD for providing advice via telephone, email, and videoconference including virtual care. All diagnostic codes (ICD-9) are applicable – but use ICD Code 079.82 or 079.8 for COVID-19 consultations if you can.
