LHIMA Recap: OP/ProFee Director Impresses with Presentation
Forging a bright future for YES, Executives Vanessa Youmans, Director, OP/ProFee Coding & Auditing, and Mari Cely, Director, Business Strategy & Marketing, represented YES at the annual LHIMA Convention, March 2-4, in New Orleans, LA. While attending the HIM convention, whose tagline reads, “Honoring the Past, Treasuring the Present, and Shaping the Future,” Vanessa and Mari focused on “shaping the future” of YES by meeting with members of the LHIMA chapter and connecting with potential clients.
LHIMA also presented the opportunity for Vanessa to present her team’s latest case study on coding quality improvement plans and standardization that aims to elevate coding accuracy to 99%. This presentation provided recent hospital acquisition trends and practical tactics for a coding team to reach optimal coding accuracy. You can find a summary of this case study published on our website here.
Both Executives noted the valuable connections and case study presentation as two of the biggest highlights of the trip – in addition to taking in the history, ambiance, and sights of “The Big Easy.”
