Read What Past Attendees Have Said
"I work at an academic institution that has a resident/faculty model for almost all patient encounters. It has allowed me to generate more revenue for my department which places me in a favorable standing with my chairman. But I have been the most impressed with the tools you all so effortlessly teach. Your course has ensured that providers are caring for patients. While the billing knowledge was fantastic, this course has allowed me to improve the quality of care that we provide to our patients. This has occurred because I was better able to explain billing reimbursement to our providers which led to them being more hands on with the residents in their daily patient encounters to ensure they captured their time but most importantly to give their time to capture. It has been a motivator for quality improvement and this was an unforeseen benefit." - Nathan Drever, MD
"In November, 2008 I was given the responsibility of managing our outpatient OB/GYN Clinic. Prior to my new position, this clinic had been losing revenue and was having a hard time staying afloat. As I started to evaluate this department I noticed things were falling through the cracks in terms of charges that were being denied due to improper coding. It had been over 20 years since I did any billing and I decided that I needed to find a coding course to brush up on my skills. In May, 2009 I enrolled in the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s Coding Course and had my eyes wide opened. I found there were codes for procedures that we should be using that I did not know we could bill for and get paid. Bringing back my new found knowledge, I set in motion the use of the correct codes for procedures and visits. Since taking my first coding course through SMFM in 2009 we brought our revenue up 70% with a variance of 143.4% for FY10." - Linda Heil Manager, Women’s Services Miller Children’s Hospital, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center
