Program integrates online courses with real-world experience and mentoring
BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – April 28, 2016 – Chesapeake Regional Healthcare has enrolled three coders in Libman Education’s “Grow Your Own Coder” program. This model of progressive learning integrates online courses with real-world experience and mentoring that is tailored to an organization’s particular medical coding needs.
Chesapeake Regional Healthcare’s goal is for its trainees to become proficient in either inpatient or outpatient coding. Two of the coders began training in December (with one training in inpatient coding and the other in outpatient), and another coder more recently began inpatient coder training.
According to Elizabeth Leff, Director, Health Information/Privacy Officer at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, “the Grow Your Own Coder program is the right fit for Chesapeake Regional. The customized training corresponds to our particular needs, and the mentoring adds a much-needed personalized element. Our coders are progressing quite well.”
