Pen Bay Medical Center, a Leapfrog Group 2012 and 2014 National Top Hospital and the largest community hospital in Midcoast Maine, is preparing a large number of its coders for the upcoming ICD-10 deadline with Libman Education’s Grow Your Own Coder – Mentoring and Progressive Skills Development program.
“This program has been very helpful in preparing us for the ICD-10 deadline,” said Elizabeth Hilchey, RN, CPHQ, RHIT, Director, Health Information of Pen Bay Medical Center. “Through it, we were able to hire individuals with an interest in coding but not necessarily any coding experience. The training process was smooth and integrated into their normal work. We found the program very beneficial.”
