Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and professional training, is presenting at the Clinical Coding Meeting during the 2016 Convention and Exhibit of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) in Baltimore, Maryland.
The presentation will feature Career Step’s Laurie McBrierty, MLT, ASCP, Vice President of Product Management and Renee Petron, RHIA, Coding Quality Director, Health Information Management for Parallon Business Solutions, a subsidiary of Hospital Corporate of America (HCA). They will be presenting on transforming inpatient coders to inpatient auditors.
“HCA/Parallon is a valued partner, and our collaboration ensures our products meet the market need and the education that employers require for their workforce,” said Ms. McBrierty. “It is important to share our experiences with others within the industry as they develop inpatient auditing within their own organizations.”

Ms. McBrierty and Ms. Petron will cover the soft and technical skills needed to become an auditor, how to transform coders into auditors, and lessons learned for both coders and the management team.
