More than two hours of video clips include five videos for each case: one at check-in, three in the exam room, and one at checkout.. Realistic information resources include medical records for each case, an office policy manual, a fee schedule, a daysheet, and more. A study guide (available in print and on the companion Evolve website): Complements textbook content through lessons that correlate reading assignments with patients in the virtual practice. Promotes active learning as you collect information from a variety of sources to make coding and billing decisions. Encourages critical thinking as you discuss and troubleshoot the documentation of the medical records. Contains common coding errors that you must spot and correct, as in real practice. Augments knowledge of HIPAA by comparing the policy manual, the contents of each case's medical record, and what actually happens in the videos. Makes lessons available online, allowing you to complete assignments and submit them electronically to your instructor.  A detailed office tour makes it easier to use the VMO software and the online study guide. Revised exercises and new activities include more objective questions and fewer open-ended questions.
