“Laureen at had such a calming effect on me. Her overall vibe was non-intimidating and she made me feel like I could do it. Whenever I would start to feel nervous, Laureen’s confident, yet laid back approach, encouraged me to keep moving forward. And, I’m so glad I did.”

Coder Challenge

For the past three plus years, Breanne has worked for Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN). She started in the front office juggling multiple tasks such
as patient scheduling and fielding phone calls and then moved into medical records after a year and a half. While working in this department, she developed a real interest in medical coding, but did not feel she had the time or the money to spend on training. “Classroom training was just not practical for me,” she says.

Coder Solution

Breanne learned about CCO through a friend. She loved the idea that she did not have to spend time in a classroom and that the out-of-pocket expense was very manageable. “I did not feel like I was taking a huge risk,” she says. She purchased Medical Terminology and Anatomy for Medical Coders in addition to the Physician-Based Medical Coding Course. I passed the CPC exam on my first try! Now, I need to update my resume!

What did Breanne like best?

  • Clever time-management techniques.\
  • The “you can do it” coaching and attitude.
  • The ability to go at her own pace.
