This role is more involved because it requires analysis of the narrative on the reports. There is a template but you need to know what to enter in the template and where. An example is if someone reports a fuzzy head as opposed to a headache, this individual would need to know how to code this.

This team takes care of approx. 7-10 cases per day. The team is also in constant contact with the manager several times per day since this position is mainly done off site.
