Director of Radiology Speaks to Students



Apr 08, 2014

On Thursday, February 13th, John Mitchell, director of radiology for Rockcastle Regional Hospital and Respiratory Care Center, was the guest speaker for the medical assisting and medical billing and coding students in Dorine Liebengood’s Medical Terminology Class and Veronica Waddle’s Medical Insurance Class.

Mr. Mitchell talked about the importance of being accurate with the documentation and coding of patient care and billing.  He discussed the importance of the coding process for insurance purposes.  The students learned that not all doctors use the same medical term for certain procedures, and that even though they may call it something different the code is still the same.  He added that the number of codes is immensely increasing, and that with more codes employees must make sure everything is documented correctly.  If not, insurance companies may deny payments for services rendered.

Christy Muriuki, medical billing and coding student said, “Mr. Mitchell gave a thorough insight to what our jobs could be and how important it is to the process and the longevity of healthcare.”
