|Pathology CPT Codes for the Palm|
CPT, or Current Procedural Terminology, was developed by the American Medical Association (AMA) in 1966 for reporting medical services and procedures performed by physicians. Its purpose is to provide a uniform language that will accurately describe medical, surgical, and diagnostic services, and it is the most widely accepted nomenclature for the reporting of physician procedures and services under government and private health insurance programs. The most recent version, CPT 2005, contains over 8,500 codes and descriptors.
In surgical pathology, various codes are assigned to hundreds of different specimens and special procedures, which may sometimes be difficult to memorize. For this reason, I've developed a small database for Palm handhelds which lists various specimens and procedures in alphabetical order and provides a search feature.
To download the Pathology CPT Codes database for your Palm click here.
Note: To be able to use this database on your Palm, you will need a software to read pdb files. If you do not already have a software to read Palm databases, you can download the free software, List.
I've also developed a simple online version of the database with similar search capabilities.
