WAYNE, Pa., and ALPHARETTA, Ga., May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Precyse University, the most innovative, complete and widely adopted on-site, online and mobile ICD-10 education solution, announces the availability of a new version of its ICD-10 Virtual Code Book mobile education application. ICD-10 Virtual Code Book allows users to enter clinical terms and/or disease/condition names to search for correct and specific ICD-10-CM codes without the use of a code book or encoder. Users can enter additional clinical words and modifiers to refine searches and drive to a more specific code, especially for conditions offering hundreds of code choices. The app also offers specific ICD-10 documentation tips for many of the conditions listed, allowing users to ensure the required documentation is included with the code choice.
Enhancements included in the new Version 3 of ICD-10 Virtual Code Book are:
- Enhanced voice recognition
- Recognition of nearly 700 abbreviations in medical shorthand
- Optimization for the latest versions of mobile operating systems that make the app faster, more responsive and even easier to use

"It's the best investment I have ever made – a must if you are a coder in a doctor's office. I will get so much use out of this app. I work in a doctor's office doing the coding and front-end billing. One of our doctors is using it already … I absolutely love this app."
