Medical Billing Consultations

Medical Records

Health refers to the level of an individual to function and metabolize efficiently. It is also the general condition of an individual’s mind and body and it means that an individual is free from pain illness or injury.
An individual is obligated to take care of his or her own health but cases arise where there is need for medical attention by the medical practitioners. The medical practitioners have an obligation to take care of the patients however there are issues that may deviate their attention and among them is the medical billing and the coding responsibilities.

Medical billing plays important roles as a lot of people are seeking the attention of the doctor towards maintain their health in good condition. Medical billing is a challenging and demanding task for medical practitioners.
Another factor is medical coding which is the first step towards medical billing process and involves transforming the descriptions of the medical procedures and diagnoses into medical code numbers. Those people working in this area are in high demand. However there are various pros and cons associated with this field that may limit an individual from entry to this medical field and they include:
A lot of software is involved to assist the doctors in medical coding activities while performing their health care services. A properly trained individual should handle the soft ware through entering the data accurately and it should have no errors.
Medical billing will assist the professional to perform effectively. Effective coders can do a good job in financial assistance.
They are assisting the doctors to claim the reimbursements accurately and in time from the parties like insurance companies the payers.

Robot-Assisted Single-Site Gallbladder Removal

Robot-Assisted Single-Site Gallbladder Removal

Pathological conditions involving gallbladder may necessitate surgical removal of the entire organ. This was traditionally achieved by a procedure known as laparoscopic surgery. However, things have changed and today the most effective and efficient method is robot gallbladder removal.
The procedure is also commonly referred to as robot-assisted single-site gallbladder removal. This new technology has revolutionized the management of gallbladder diseases and improved the outcome of surgical intervention.
The efficiency of robot gallbladder removal is informed by many findings. The traditional laparoscopic procedure required that three to five incisions are made on the abdomen in order to access the gallbladder. In the new technology, only a single incision is made. This limits the size of the scar formed and therefore little effects on the skin.
In addition, robotic gallbladder removal takes a shorter time, only 30 minutes to one hour, compared to the traditional laparoscopic procedure which takes several hours. Finally, it is safe, precise and free from most postsurgical complications that may arise from other gallbladder removal.

In recent years there have been major development and consequently so much hype on the 3-dimension field of technology. The greatest beneficiary so far has been the entertainment industry which has seen the rise of 3D shot and computer generated movies, 3D glasses and very high resolution screens and theaters. But not all industries have embraced this new technology, among them is the medical industry which has been quite skeptical about adopting this new technology mainly because of the highly delicate nature of the work.

Other than the use of 3D cadavers, organs and skeletons as aids in teaching hospitals, most professionals in the industry have shunned this otherwise very promising technology. This, according to the latest study conducted by Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Klinikum Rechts Der Isar University hospital andHeinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) in Munich, Germany, is however likely to change in the very near future.

Queenslanders will benefit from a new online research database linking Queensland Health researchers with prospective participants the first of its kind in the Australian public health system. The Database of Research Activity (DoRA) launched today is an important source of information for consumers to find out the latest medical treatments and ideas being trialled.  Queensland Health Office of Health and Medical Research (OHMR) Executive Director Professor Robin Mortimer said the database would create a central catalogue of research activity taking place across the state. The database highlights the vast amount of research currently being undertaken throughout Queensland, Professor Mortimer said.  It really shows how much activity is being achieved in Queensland public hospitals in collaboration with Queensland universities and other organisations.

Nicotine

Why Is It So Hard to Quit Smoking?

Mark Twain said, Quitting smoking is easy. I’ve done it a thousand times. Maybe you’ve tried to quit, too. Why is quitting and staying quit hard for so many people? The answer is nicotine.

Nicotine

Nicotine is a drug found naturally in tobacco. It is highly addictive as addictive as heroin or cocaine. Over time, a person becomes physically and emotionally addicted to, or dependent on, nicotine. Studies have shown that smokers must deal with both the physical and psychological dependence to be successful at quitting and staying quit.

Smoking is expensive. It isn’t hard to figure out how much you spend on smoking: multiply how much money you spend on tobacco every day by 365 (days per year). The amount may surprise you. Now multiply that by the number of years you have been using tobacco and that amount will probably shock you.

The Neem tree is sacred in India because of its life-protecting properties. It is a powerful cleansing herb renowned for its ability to purify both the inside and outside of the body.

1349598_anatomy

Most orthopedic problems, like pain and stiffness in the joints, muscles and back, are not due to any specific disease in progress. Such problems are mostly symptoms of wearing, small injuries and tense muscles. The problems rise because of wrong use of the body during work and spare time. They also rise because of constant stress and lack of rest. However, if something is not done to treat such simple problems, they can over time evolve into a more serious condition or damage.Here are some simple advices to avoid or cure such orthopedic problems.

- Variate the way you sit or stand during work and other activities. Any position will exert pressure at certain areas of your body and restrict the flow of blood and lymph through these areas. There is no sitting and standing position that are so physiological correct that it should be held a long time. Frequent variations of your position will ensure that no body area will get a restricted blood flow over a long time.
