ABOUT OUR MEDICAL CODING EDUCATION

"The most common cause of poor documentation is a lack of understanding of the specific information that needs to be included for coding purposes. Physicians tend to document a lot of information; however, due to a lack of education, they do not use the words needed to provide the highest level of specificity."

Medical Coding Education

WHAT REALLY MAKES OUR MEDICAL CODING EDUCATION DIFFERENT?

  What separates Physician Coding Resource is our belief that we can help Physicians and Providers create more revenue without adding services or patients.  By simplifying how to identify patients who qualify for a higher level of service we can accomplish this goal.  Simply learning what differentiates a 99204 from a 99203 can result in a $50 per patient increase in revenue. 

   Over the past 2 years we have worked with numerous providers capturing over $1.8 million dollars in revenue that was due for the level of service provided. By using provider led training in our medical coding education we can deliver information that is easily transferred from the classroom to the exam room.

Caylon Haggard PA-C

Founder

Hello! My name is Caylon Haggard, I am a husband and father of two beautiful kids. Over the last 10 years I have practiced emergency medicine and urgent care medicine as a physician assistant at numerous rural and metro facilities in the Oklahoma City area. Approximately 5 years ago my life changed when I became a partner in an urgent care company. It was then that I realized exactly how much time and money I had wasted over the previous 5 years through poor medical documentation and a lack of basic knowledge of medical coding. Through education and hard work, I have become an expert in provider documentation for medical coding purposes. The education that I obtained has created more time with my family and more freedom to do whatever I choose with my life; it has also led me to create Physician Coding Resource. Over the last 3 years I have worked with numerous physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants increasing their knowledge of medical documentation for coding purposes with the hope of giving them the same freedom and time that I have enjoyed.
