Initially worked as an Inpatient coder at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Maintaining productivity and accuracy for three years and assuring that there was proper assignment of the correct DRG. After the IP charts I went to the CPT world working with Outpatient. Since then I have accomplished working Anesthesia, Emergency Room- Physician and Facility, Surgery, Pediatrics and working with CMS for an audit on documenting the HCC's in the patient's chart over a three year span.
Latest proficiencies are working for the past two years on The Three Day Window as a Compliance Manager training coders how to extract correct charges for the ED visit from the Inpatient Stay without it effecting the already billed and paid DRG. Also during that time have assisted in the product development for a MS-DRG project including physician education on documentation and the code assignment to help generate increase in revenue.

Have worked multiple facilities as a consultant and have taken the opportunity to supply just a few of them to explain the various job duties that I have perfected.
