About Dr Gily
I am an Internal Medicine physician practicing at a rural clinic in the state of Washington.
Ever since I started my outpatient practice, I was equally surprised and frustrated by how difficult it was to find a user-friendly, accurate and fast ICD-9 code search tool online. There are only a handful of sites that provide this service, and most of them are cumbersome to use. Some EHR systems (including the one I am currently using) have ICD-9 diagnostic codes search functions incorporated, but the ones I've looked at so far are no better. I can't say enough about how much frustration and lost time I accumulated over the last few years while searching for common and not so common ICD-9 codes...
Eventually I decided to create my own ICD-9 search tool. With my basic programming and HTML editing skills, and the ICD-9 data files from CMS, I figured it wouldn't take me too long to put together a site built on a Web 2.0 architecture, with ease of use, speed and accuracy as main objectives. And I was right. In less than two weeks, during spare moments, I managed to put it all together.
I'd like to hear your thoughts, comments and suggestions, too. Feel free to post them on my contact page.
