“We have strong relationships with the colleges in our community and work closely with them on education. In this case, we were searching for a program that taught from a ‘coding mind’ – preferably from someone well-seasoned in medical coding,” said Cansas Riggenbach, Physician Services Coding Supervisor for Marietta Memorial Hospital. “Anatomy & Physiology for Coders includes all the body systems plus additional important information such as laboratory tests, prescription drugs, medical terminology and disease processes. We decided that Libman Education offers the best education at a great value.”
Riggenbach added, “From the perspective of maintaining quality control, we really appreciate the course’s Teaching Assistant program, which enables us to go into the grade book and see how our coders are doing, and encourage anyone who needs a nudge.”
Marietta Memorial Hospital is part of the Memorial Health System which provides an array of medical and surgical services; a comfortable birthing center; an inpatient geriatric psych program; a stroke accredited inpatient rehabilitation center; specialized cardiac services; level three trauma designated Emergency Department, state-of-the-

Being online, Libman Education’s Anatomy & Physiology for Coders allows more people to be trained for less. Students can take the course anywhere at anytime, without the time constraints of travel and the requirement of all students to be instructed at the same facility at the same time – as well as without the cost constraints of renting facilities and hiring instructors.
Throughout the country, significant numbers of students are slated to take the increasingly popular course. It has been used to train staff at several prestigious organizations, including Johns Hopkins Hospital, Lahey Clinic, Southern Maine Medical Center, Carroll Hospital Center, and the Lifespan Health Network of Rhode Island.
The course is thorough, yet accelerated. In 12 weeks, students receive a comprehensive and complete review of the major body systems. Common diseases and disorders are covered, as well as laboratory tests and prescription drugs. To enhance the course, videos, interactive educational games, and full-color anatomical drawings are provided.
Anatomy & Physiology for Coders is approved by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) for 24 CEUs (continuing education units) and by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) for 6 CEUs.
