About This Blog

I don't accept advertisements...
You may notice something missing from this blog post: advertisements.  And that is not an accident.  This blog is a voluntary effort on my part to give back to an industry I love.  I do not accept endorsements or advertisements or visiting blog posts from people that I have not met personally.  I may at times refer to other resources I am personally familiar with if I find them beneficial.  This is the only way I know to ensure the integrity of my Coder Coach blog.

I welcome your honest and constructive feedback...
You are free to comment on blog postings and I welcome all feedback, but please note that I do monitor every post before publishing it.  Any posts with links to other products or advertisements will not be published.  I don't always publish comments right away and cannot guarantee that I can respond to each and every comment in a timely manner.

While it is my goal to provide an unbiased resource for people looking for information on the coding industry, you should know that I am a coding consultant and my primary job is training and education.  I love what I do, so I often feel the need to brag about our services.  At this time, Haugen Consulting Group contracts directly with hospitals and other healthcare providers to provide coding education.  If there ever comes a time when we market directly to the public, I will post information about our services.

I hope you enjoy the blog posts on this page and find the information valuable as you plan your career.

  1. As an IS person working with revenue cycle and coding systems, I found this blog to be a breath of fresh air. I've tried to years to understand DRGs, CPTs, etc. and just couldn't keep it straight. The only grouper I knew was a kind of fish. :) Thank you!
