Deepa Patel, CPC

In the era of declining reimbursements, delayed payments, insurance take backs, ever changing regulations and software glitches to name but a few, practices like yours face multiple obstacles to getting paid. Just like a finely tuned car all aspects of your practice must function seamlessly to maximize healthcare collections every day.

After many years of working in different healthcare fields, I have found out that many physicians and healthcare companies are not effectively getting their collections from both insurance companies and patients. I have learned that many offices often do not know they have a problem with their accounts receivables until there is no money in the bank. Reasons vary from not knowing how to check insurance correctly, or errors with practice management systems that makes tracking outstanding AR difficult, credentialing issues, changes and updates to the submission process, changes in regulations along with a slew of other reasons.

Ann Barnaby

When I began the Project Resume, I was working as a medical coding hiring manager and recruiter. I reviewed resumes from so many coders who had endless potential. Unfortunately, that potential was impeded by resumes with poor grammar and spelling mistakes, and interviews that included one candidate who loudly chewed gum the entire time, to another who wore beach flip flops to our meeting. It quickly became clear to me that there was little guidance available to medical coders regarding career development and professionalism. I set out to fix that, and that’s why I began Project Resume.
