Congratulations to Marisa who passed the Certified Documentation Expert- Outpatient (CDEO) exam through the AAPC! This credential validates her expertise in reviewing outpatient documentation for accuracy in the support of coding, quality measures and clinical requirements. The exam requires her to have a strong knowledge of pathophysiology, coding and billing guidelines and quality measures, so this is truly a testament to her expertise and ability. This credential will allow Marisa to continue her work on improving providers documentation to support increasing reimbursement.
Please join me in congratulating Marisa on this accomplishment!
