Conversations with our Physicians

Welcome to The Breakroom!

The Breakroom was created at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis to offer our physician-led clinical and coding expertise to HIM, Coders, and CDI professionals. Our goal was to help fill the gap created by the shift in physician efforts to the direct care of patients which resulted in limited physician advisory support.  We continue this commitment to support the Revenue Cycle and HIM/CDI communities.

Our primary mission is to provide up-to-date clinical information in support of documentation and coding challenges and other pertinent topics.

We invite you to join this collaborative dialogue with our physicians and guest speakers.
