  • Traumatic brain injury affects behavioral health
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Regardless of whether the substance use was directly associated with the brain injury or developed as a maladaptive coping mechanism post injury, it is something that cannot be overlooked The presentation of behavioral health difficulties resulting from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are often seen immediately after the injury and may linger for an indefinite period of time. Psychiatric symptoms and behaviors present challenges to the patient, family and treating clinicians. Psychological trauma resulting from the event that led to the TBI, such as combat associated explosions, motor vehicle accidents and serious falls, can cause post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which may complicate recovery.  read more

  • Washington chips away at psychiatric boarding
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Psychiatric boarding has gotten so out of hand that the state Supreme Court banned the practice. Meanwhile, the community is scrambling to help patients. In Washington state, patients who have been involuntarily committed to psychiatric treatment wait excessive amounts of time to move from emergency rooms to specialized care. They often stew for days without treatment and become increasingly distressed.  In fact, such “psychiatric boarding” has spiraled so far out of control in recent years that the state Supreme Court banned the practice, ruling it unconstitutional and a violation of civil rights. read more

  • ICD-10 and DSM-5: History, Education, and Culture
    • Authors: Lisette Wright
      Abstract: Graduate programs must step up if we are to remain fiscally solvent As I continue to make my way around the country sharing the “ICD-10 and DSM-5 Coding, Documentation, and Clinical Diagnostic Criteria Training,©" I learn  how others have come into awareness of the ICD-series itself. Some people learn about it from reading or a workshop they attended. Two people say they learned about it in graduate school (OH, NY). Most have heard of it via their EHR vendor who will “take care of it for us.” One participant leanred from her State Medicaid agency. read more

  • Pay attention to the psychology of color
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Consider three approaches that will make color work within your facility?s interior design When it comes to the design of your healthcare facility, few details play a bigger role than that of color. From the blues and greens to purples and yellows, every hue you use evokes a different emotion from your visitors. If you choose the colors in your design scheme well, you will be able to give the impression that you can be trusted, improve the mood of your patients, and even help the recovery process go smoother. Clearly, the psychology of color is something you want to pay attention to. 1/ Make a good first impression read more

  • Guess who has newfound support for coding'
    • Authors: H. Steven Moffic
      Abstract: A panel discussion left me feeling that there needs to be periodic on-site meetings between coders, clinicians, and administrators, as we were all part of a system that still should put the patient first Not long ago, while on vacation, I was invited to be on a panel for a radio talk show centering on coding for the upcoming 10th edition of the International Code of Diseases (ICD). At first, I tried to politely decline the offer, not only because I was on vacation, but more so because I thought I knew next to nothing about ICD. read more
