Code Search Result's Color Identifies Keyword-Code Mapping Source
April 24, 2013

If you've ever wondered where a code suggestion for a keyword came from, SuperCoder's new color-coded search results reveal the definitive source. In SuperCoder's Code Search box [Keyword tab], when you enter a keyword that exists in a codeset's index, the index's suggested codes appear in purple and red. Additional codes suggested by SuperCoder's extensive Keyword to Code Correspondence Helper (KECH) appear in blue and green. Often, the first code entry suggestion will be in purple and red meaning the result from the code book index and KECH match.
The color coding's pinpointing of the definitive source helps you:

  • Identify the correct code faster with on-target results
  • Code more correctly by providing the same code suggestions that you would find if you looked up the term in the indexes of CPT®, ICD-9, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS
  • Save time by simultaneously searching codeset indexes and KECH
  • Plug revenue leaks with code suggestions for abbreviations and alternative codesets for terms excluded from coding books' indexes
  • Confidently transition from books to online knowing the purple and pink provide the same results as manual code lookup without thumb fatigue.
