New iPhone Application for Anesthesiologists
Date:7/8/2009

Silicon Valley Physician Richard O'Leary, M.D. has developed GasCoder, an iPhone application primarily for anesthesia care providers and their support staff that allows the user to quickly and easily look up CPT® and CPT® anesthesia codes.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 8, 2009 -- A new iPhone application specifically for anesthesiologists and other medical professionals who work in the anesthesia field is now out on the market.

GasCoder enables the user to quickly and easily look up these codes, which Medicare, Medicaid, and many other insurance companies require in order to pay the anesthesia provider.

GasCoder creator, Dr. O'Leary, got the idea for the application in early 2008 while using his iPhoneTM. "I was thinking if my iPhone could save thousands of songs, email addresses and phone numbers, there had to be a way for it to store and search for anesthesia billing codes," said Dr. O'Leary.

Every surgical procedure has two code numbers associated with it. For example, a bunion surgery has a CPT code of 28293 (correction of bunion) and the CPT anesthesia code of 00840 (anesthesia for open procedure on…the foot). There are approximately 7000 CPT codes. Each year, approximately 300-500 of the codes are modified to keep up with advances in medicine and each year the American Medical Association (AMA ) publishes the CPT database which lists all of the procedures. Similarly, the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) each year puts out the Crosswalk&
