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."

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.
