Seniors in the health information management and health care administration degree programs at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford recently visited BKD, an accounting consulting firm in Tulsa. The seniors got hands-on experience with such tasks as auditing codes, comparison of standards, dealing with coding standards and ethics, and developing a compliance plan. This non-traditional role is available for HIM/HCA graduates with the Registered Health Information Administrator credential and HCA degree.
