Working in an office with both doctors and patients isn’t easy. You have to decipher the physicians’ documentation while at the same time find the correct code for a patient’s diagnosis.

As you’re trying to find that balance between coding to the best and doing your best to get the reimbursement for your practice, you’ll be glad to know that there’s one company out there that’s got your back.

3M, the company that makes Post-it notes, created a few products with you in mind. Go to their Web site at http://www.3m.com/product/information/Post-it-Medical-Flag.html to check out the following:

  • Post-it Super Sticky Notes. These come in larger sizes and are easier for busy doctors to catch as they bounce from patient to patient.
  • Post-it Flags. These are great for flagging problem claims or color coding patient records.
  • Post-it Pop-up Dispensers. Just take off a note as you need it. You won’t need to search for your pad of notes when they’re always in the dispenser.
