Historic inconsisent coding
- Because of inconsistent coding for anemia's when anyone asks for data related to anemia in our database, we would provide them with a list of patients coded with anemia and it will be up to the researcher to audit the chart to look deeper for actual cause. Will have to check with ICD10 if we will still be as detailed or have a more broad category for anemia.Trish Ostryzniuk 18:20, 2012 March 13 (CDT)
