Flash Pulmonary Edema
Our EHR is Meditech and they use the IMO to populate the Problem Dictionary. We are running into an issue whereby the doctor is documenting the problem of flash pulmonary edema, which is included in the problem look-up with associated ICD-10 code of J81.0. However, coding is saying that they cannot assume 'flash' to mean 'acute'. Anyone else out there using Meditech and how are you handling problems/codes like this in Meditech? It is frustrating for the doctors when it looks like they are picking an appropriate diagnosis only to be told they should be saying something else.
