...that's in essence what the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is all about.

You may have been hearing the buzz about transitioning the codes that hospitals and physicians use to bill, from "ICD-9" to "ICD-10"...whoa, did they think of everything...

Many moons ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) developed a system for coding and billing. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), uses the system to determine payments.

...hey, but who is counting? Well, they are in Houston.

Apparently a local hotel's executive chef created a half ton chocolate Santa with a cost of $5,000 and 400 hours of culinary time to create! Lucky for some, it's not edible as thy covered it with a lacquer finish.

Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital (FHSH) is participating in a program with the help of Community Medical Centers Foundation staff that formally recognizes employees that are commended by patients, families, and/or friends, for extraordinary care and customer experience. It's a way for them to say "thank you" in a palpable way.

...Yep, I think I'm more "bottom-brained"...huh?

I read an article recently that indicated left and right brained is so yesterday...all the rage now is "top-brain" and "bottom-brain". The theory now centers around a more anatomical division between the top and bottom halves of the noggin'.

The top portion is composed of the parietal lobe and top of the frontal lobe which apparently uses more information about our environment and emotional reactions to formulate plans and generate expectations.
