The goal of the the Association for Rural Health Professional Coding (ARHPC) is to provide the rural, school-based, and federally qualified health community including clinicians, coders, revenue cycle staff, and other financial reimbursement professionals with access to low-cost, high quality education related to healthcare business operations. Our mission is to help you have a career and not just a job though professional certification through an investment in continuing education.
Professional credentials can grow your value and help you get a raise! Your health care facility and patients can also benefit also by having a better understanding of what services were performed and why. By applying the knowledge you gain you can have a direct impact to help your facility stay financially sustainable, better track public health, and to help your patients understand their care!
Other coding and billing educational credentials are helpful to a degree, but they likely teach you how to interpret medical records documentation dealing with surgical and procedural services that you will never use.
Why the ARHPC?
We are the rural health community’s preferred education partner. ARHPC strives to sustain the profitability and viability of those serving America’s rural and urban patients by providing the nation’s only coding and billing credentials specific to what you do on a daily basis.
We strive to be a credible source of relevant knowledge, an educational partner and resource recommended by your state rural health and primary care organizations, and to build strong and effective working relationships between those who provide patient care & document into medical records and those who translate that medical data into revenue or track patient care.
