NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CodeSmart Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:ITEN), with its subsidiary, The CODESMARTTM Group, Inc.

"Based on the fact that our healthcare system is about to be flooded with new patients as well as a significant increase in the number of codes required for adequate reimbursement, it is essential that new coders are introduced into the market to handle the increase," says Ira Shapiro, CEO of CODESMART™.
