I was interested in starting an in-house vaccine barcoding system. We are
not currently using an EMR so this would be a standalone system for us to
track vaccine usage/inventory/etc.

I was wondering if anyone on the list has done something like this using the
1D barcode that is already on the vaccines. I know there is a current CDC
pilot program using some new 2D barcoding but other than that I have not
found much information online regarding the use of 1D barcode.


I am trying to put together office policy on emergency closings (snow,
hurricanes, etc).

Can anybody share their policies applicable for a small (2 docs) practice?

New Study on Families of Children and Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Hello, my name is Jenna Cacciola and I am currently a 4th year clinical psychology doctoral graduate student at the University of Indianapolis in Indianapolis, IN.


Our office has a large panel of managed care medicaid (Horizon Mercey NJ Health)  which are capitated. We have extended night and weeknd hrs where it is a walkin office. So, as you can guess, we are seeing loads of patents without any additional payments from the insurance company. We tried to negiotate with them to try to get a higher cap rate or to get them to pay an after hrs code but they flat out said no. We would like to continue to see our patients who have insurance companies who recognise the after hrs code but not the ones that dont. Any ideas on how to do this?
