Turbo Coder is a set of digital ICD coding books that runs on Windows PCs and networks. They work as applications with their own built-in viewer, search and annotation functionality, and integrate with your fi les that you are working with and can interface with just a few clicks. This makes ICD coding seamless.
One of the highlights is that there is no more need to stop and pull books from shelves or open up another screen and log in somewhere. I loved the fact that I could simply highlight and drag and drop a word onto the Drag-on on your Desktop from outside the publication, or use the Search box with simple terms and it would begin to search for the code! It's fast and extremely easy-to-use.
