2016 WINNERS—In Their Words
How I used the winnings
“I was able to pay off some credit card debt, put some aside for shopping and gave a bit back through various charity events at work.”
My reasons for competing
“Curiosity…as to what type of cases would need to be coded and what the system was like. I also know I’m a good inpatient coder and had a chance to win some money utilizing my coding knowledge.”
Biggest contest challenge
“Some of the cases were ones that I may not like to code so I just took a big longer with those cases. I would try a different case and come back to the challenging ones. I also reviewed guidelines before going back into the case.”
Advice for 2017 contestants
“I just tried to have fun with it!”
