Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"I have recommended the Professional Review Guides to several educators over the past 20 years. I also highly recommended the Review Guides to students. It is the most comprehensive review guide available for HIM students. The other selling factor is the amount of information that is included concerning study strategies, resources, and review techniques. The appendices are also very helpful since they supply a guide for pharmacology, laboratory tests, and the most current coding guidelines."

— Sheila Newberry, PhD, RHIT, HIM Program Director, St. Petersburg College

"Great overview and covers topics from reimbursement concepts to CPT coding. Reference points are great. Great review book for the new coder to seasoned coder."

— Anne C Karl, RHIA, CCS-P, CPC, CCC, Adjunct Facult, Rasmussen College, Bloomington, MN
