NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Codapedia™ (http://www.codapedia.com/) announced an exciting marketing and distribution collaboration with UBM Medica. Codapedia™, launched in 2009 by Betsy Nicoletti and Greenbranch Publishing, is the largest collaborative online encyclopedia for medical coding, billing, and reimbursement for physician services. The easy-to-access content in Codapedia™ features expert articles, forums, resources and links to definitive citations.
"The site is a vital tool for anyone in the medial practice that is charged with helping physicians get paid for the work that they do," said Nancy Collins, President of Greenbranch Publishing. "Over 20,000 healthcare providers use the free service and from the moment Codapedia™ went live, medical professionals have been finding expert answers for saving time, avoiding errors and maximizing reimbursement."
"Coders often have very limited budgets to pay for resources, and yet they want to be accurate and compliant in their coding," Betsy Nicoletti says. "Codapedia™ offers the knowledge needed to do their jobs, and the ability to share hard-found expertise with other coders. Additionally, Codapedia™ has included free ICD-10 coding tutorials that have been invaluable in training physicians and their admin staff on the nuances of ICD-10."
"We are excited to be partnering with such a fantastic resource in Codapedia™, especially during the ICD-10 transition." said Devin Eppley, Partner Relations Manager at UBM Medica. "Coding content is particularly sought after post-transition, and that is where Codapedia™ comes in."
