DOPC study


Fam Pract Manag. 2000 Apr;7(4):11.

To the Editor:

I was glad to hear about the Direct Observation of Primary Care (DOPC) study and its findings on over- and undercoding [“Identifying Patterns of Over- and Undercoding,” November/December 1999]. We need this feedback to do a better and more “honestly accurate” job of coding. Keep sharing this information with us in the field!

Editor's note: See page 47 for the fifth article in our series on the DOPC.
