Imagine that you are a coding supervisor and have decided to cross-train all of your coders so that they can all help out when a coder is on out of the office due to vacation, illness, a leave of absence, or a permanent end of employment with your organization. You feel that cross-training all of your coders will help alleviate any coding backlog and will help ensure your coders can all cover one another’s work. You decide to make a PowerPoint that includes the highlights of both inpatient and outpatient/physician coding guidelines so that your coders understand both inpatient and outpatient/physician coding.
