On Wednesday, July 29, Kareo EHR was upgraded to the latest version. This release includes several new ICD-10 features and mobile app updates as well as performance and reliability enhancements.
ICD-10 Hierarchical Browse and Search
For easy ICD-10 coding, you can search for ICD-10 codes through the code hierarchy. Simply click to browse or search by code or phrase. For more details, read the full release notes.
To more quickly access your favorites, you can now search against your existing favorites list and sort by either ICD-9 or ICD-10. Simply search by code or phrase.
You can now rank or arrange your favorites by personal priority with simple drag and drop capability.
We have simplified the process of adding and removing favorites. Now just hover and click the star to favorite. To remove a favorite, click the star again to prompt the alert to remove it. This also makes it easier to add or remove multiple favorites at one time.
To accommodate the need for greater specificity with ICD-10, you can now favorite parent level ICD-10 codes. Rather than having to favorite each billable specified option, you can favorite a group of codes that are relevant to a commonly encountered diagnosis. For more details, read the full release notes.
Adding and Editing Problems
Now you can manually type in an ICD-10 code directly when known. For more details, read the full release notes.
Coding Labs and Studies
High-level orders can now be dual-coded. When you add a new order, you can choose to dual code the associated diagnosis. For more details, read the full release notes.
User Interface updates
