A reputable medical billing and coding company, Outsource Strategies International (OSI)’s article “National Women’s Health Week: Promote Healthy Choices” has been featured in BC Advantage Magazine, the highly acclaimed CEU-approved national online healthcare publication.

The article provides a comprehensive overview of the importance of observing National Women’s Health Week which is celebrated in May, starting on Mother’s Day. Observed every year from May 9 – 16, the National Women’s Health Week’s goal is to remind women to take better care of themselves and make their health a priority. The article notes that in addition to focusing on their physical wellbeing, women and girls also need to pay attention to their mental health and build psychological resilience to face crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic – as millions of women have underlying medical conditions that put them at higher risk of severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19.

The article discusses key points such as health issues that affect women differently – heart disease, depression and stress, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), pain conditions, urinary tract infections- and health issues that are unique to women – such as certain types of cancer, gynecological health issues, pregnancy-related conditions and infertility issues. Along with this information, the article also covers women’s health – diverse gender-specific services and a few measures to promote physical and mental health. It also discusses medical coding for Women’s Health Services – using ICD-10 and CPT codes; and CPT Codes for Preventive Health Services.
