Double Your Coding Production Using These CAC and ICD-10 Training Stragegies
Some experts say that your productivity during the ICD-10 transition could be only 60% of what it is now. But you can boost that percentage rate. Follow this expert advice to double your coding production without having to hire more people or outsource.
