The Evaluation and Management Step: An Auditing Tool 2009 Edition
The Evaluation and Management Step: An Auditing Tool offers the professional coder a thorough review and practice of 17 subsections presented in AMA's CPT manual. This is most beneficial for professional coders responsible for auditing records, as the practice cases are taken from real documentation. Coders preparing to sit for an E/M certification exam will also find this equally beneficial because it is presented in an outline and review format with plenty of practice questions. The two exams in the book (see further description below) are NOT based off any E/M exam offered by various organizations. The Evaluation and Management Step is a perfect companion for any advanced medical coding course either focused specifically on the topic of E/M or as an add-on where learners are preparing for the workplace and need real-life scenarios for practice.
