To the Editor:
This is how fast things change in information processing. As you were publishing your comprehensive study of CPR systems (November/December 1997), A*A Data reengineered its Stat*Pack CPR system to become Docu*Mentor, which automatically codes procedures (CPT) and diagnoses (ICD-9). Docu*Mentor then flashes on-screen advisories to help doctors avoid billing fraud. The revised application is “light” enough to install on laptop or notebook units that can travel to school with students or accompany doctors as they meet patients on rounds. While practitioners are charged $500 for the software, it is free to students and teachers. For more information, your readers may contact me by E-mail: email@example.com.
