Question: When and how to use Exploding Sets.

Answer: Exploding Sets allow the user to add multiple diagnoses, visit charges, or procedure charges with a single click or tap. This can significantly reduce physician coding time while simultaneously enforcing billing compliance. Exploding sets are most useful for visit types or procedures that are commonly used and where the same diagnoses and/or charge codes are always used together, such as a series of immunizations on well child visits for pediatricians.
