Code Blue Coding was founded in 2003 by Andrew K. Worthington, MD, CPC.
During his career in the private sector he became disillusioned with traditional CPC led coding training. He felt that the courses were geared towards coding professionals rather than practitioners.
In response to these concerns he developed several E&M Coding training programs tailored specifically for physicians.
Today Code Blue Coding, led by Dr. Worthington and physician instructors, has trained thousands of physicians nationwide with the following results: improved compliance with a 10%–15% increase in revenue.
