Gary currently serves as both Senior Faculty and Vice President of Education Operations for the Association for Rural Healthcare Professional Coding (ARHPC) while serving the state and federally-funded medical community. Gary has a particular focus on helping Rural Health, Federally-Qualified, Public, and School-based Health Centers to manage the integration of clinical documentation regulations into their healthcare organization’s business operations such as professional coding, medical billing, and compliance auditing, by educating staff who can carry out a plan to unify its people, its processes, and its supporting technologies.
“These people see that survival doesn’t always equal success."
Gary’s primary focus with the ARHPC is to create educational collaborations with state rural health, primary care, and hospital associations who seek to help the careers of their members and improve the financial success of their member medical facilities through ongoing education. He earned his Masters of Science in Health Informatics degree from the University of Illinois – Chicago in March 2014 preceded by a degree in Business Administration from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business in 1994.
