Dr. Betty Bibbins has a vast knowledge of not only the Health Information Management (HIM) aspect, but the importance of physician documentation in particular. Physician documentation impacts all aspects of coding and billing, which Dr. Bibbins clearly understands and strives to encourage her colleagues to understand. She has a great ability to comprehend coding guidelines and the relationship physician documentation plays when applying these guidelines.

Dr. Bibbins is very approachable, which is very conducive, when in the role of liaison between coding and physicians. She is outstanding when it comes to educating HIM professionals and physicians on the importance of working together to accurately paint the picture of the patient’s hospital stay.

"As a registered nurse at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore Maryland, I had the opportunity to be instructed by Dr. Betty Bibbins in October 2009. Several of my collages and I were among the first group to be certified in clinical documentation. The three-day course provided numerous opportunities to learn by means of resourceful handouts, clear and interesting lectures as well as roll playing. With the diversity of those in attendance, we had the ideal opportunity to apply the methods as they were taught by Dr. Bibbins. Using the knowledge I learned through the certification course, my daily physician querying has continued to develop to be more specific yet non-leading."

“Dr. Bibbins is a class act with the clinical knowledge and skilled expertise to support whatever role she acquires. As a client of her company, I have seen no one battle the system with more vigor and resolve than Betty Bibbins. She expects and will only accept your best effort. Education, preparation and collaboration are tools she invokes to ensure the delivery of quality information and improved healthcare at your facility. Her leadership role and communication skills demonstrate a tireless effort to do what it takes to get the job done in the most professional manner possible.”

“I attended your CDI Class in Indiana, along with four other colleagues. I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge and insight that was included in the (3) days. The learning environment was very inviting. The facilitators were very approachable and helpful. We took the certification exam and thank God, we all passed. Thank you so much for a program that presented information in a way that was not overwhelming. I look forward to attending future programs offered by DocuComp.”

Deborah Lowery, RN, BSN, MA, C-CDI
University of Maryland Medical Systems

“Provided the how- to’s of effective communication & collaboration, as well as, the development of clinical documentation strategies with multidisciplinary healthcare professionals. Will recommend to my clients for their CDI specialists who will benefit from this informative program by helping them to remain compliant, get buy-in from physicians and improve documentation to increase their bottom line.”
