For a long time, I didn’t tab any of my coding books. Well, wait that might not be entirely true. I used to have 1 tab for the Neoplasm Table and that’s it. Not sure why I never put the time in to tab the books the right way. But the long and short of it is, I already thought I was a great coder–why did I need to tab my books?
But then as I was getting things together and planning the x-ray cpt coding class, I was thinking about all the ways that would make coding easier for my students and I did a 180. I started thinking about the tabs again and how beneficial it would be. So, I made a set of tabs to put on my book to show as an example. Later on, when I was working, I realized how much faster I was coding. It was like night and day.
Every coder I know, whether they’re a newbie or not, worries about not coding fast enough. If you work as a production coder, you need to think about whether or not you are meeting your company’s production requirements. Speaking of which, if you’re not, there are things you can do to improve productivity–see this freebie. So, anyway, back to the books. I’ve put together a quick video showing you how to tab the ICD-10-CM book. See below:
If you want to tab your books, but there’s too much on you plate– you can purchase a set of these tabs:) The ones you see in this video are a sample. What you see is what you get. These tabs have gotten great reviews–please see the sidebar on the right of your computer.
