    Seeking a Medical Coder position in a clinic/hospital where I can use my extensive
    computer and medical knowledge, superior referencing skills, communication, and dedication
    to code to the highest level of specificity.

    I have 2 and a half years experience as a Medical Records technician working with
    records as old as the 1960s. I have learned about how critical medical coding is
    for patients, insurance companies, researching agencies, and the office of the surgeon
    general. I have acquired superior skills in coding to the highest level using the
    ICD-9, CPT, and HCPCS reference books. In addition, I am skilled in using medical
    dictionaries and online search engines to obtain information. I have knowledge in
    Medical Coding, Anatomy and Medical Terminology. I am a certified CPC-A coder, and
    have trained several coders to obtain their certification teaching basic coding guidelines
    and how to code accurately with success. I am a computer natural who quickly learns
    new software programs. Through college education and work experience, I have acquired
    great skills in referencing material and communicating with others to obtain the
    proper information. I am known for having the highest accuracy when it comes to data
    input in which I received an award from tax center. When it comes to coding, the
    highest level of specificity is my priority.
