Edelberg Featured in AAPC Healthcare Business Monthly!

Our own Lee Williams, RHIT, CPCO, CPC, CCS, CCDS, Director of Coding Operations wrote an article in the July issue of the AAPC Healthcare Business Monthly.

Here is an excerpt from the article that appears on Page 40 of the magazine:

Is Your Next Step Inpatient Coding?

Compare it with outpatient coding, and if the show fits, wear it.

The healthcare industry affords many wonderful opportunities for

career transition and growth. There is a plethora of career choices

available, such as coding, billing, auditing, compliance, and practice

management. If you decide on coding, you will also need to determine

your preference in the outpatient or inpatient setting. Many

outpatient coders assign diagnosis and procedural codes for physician

offices, ambulatory surgery centers, emergency department

(ED) services, etc.; whereas, inpatient coders assign codes for services

provided during a hospital inpatient stay.

It’s always a good idea to stay current with employment trends, no

matter what your profession. Healthcare is evolving, not only on the

clinical side of medicine, but also on the side of business and consumer

awareness. With impending ICD-10 implementation and

coder shortages reported by many facilities, it makes sense to consider

inpatient coding as your next step.
