About Us is powered by the coding experts from The Coding Institute, LLC, who bring 110 years of combined coding expertise to coders, physicians, and payers. Our roots go back to 1947 with the launch of our first publication Medicine & Health. Leslie Norins, MD, PhD, launched our first coding product in 1992 in Naples, Fla. Since then, tens of thousands of coders, physicians, and consultants have relied on the Coding Institute's newsletters for practical coding information on more than 30 medical specialties. The beauty of is it offers medical code searching tied to hundreds of thousands of medical coding tools and resources including articles from The Coding Institute's Specialty Coding Alerts. Coders and researchers can find the information they need in one place making their workday more efficient. The tools reduce compliance risk and the trusted advice reviewed by top  coding and clinical experts improves coding accuracy. 

Many of The Coding Institute's editors have written Coding Alerts for almost a decade working with the same national consultants who serve on the CPT® editorial board, ICD-9 advisory board, and specialty society boards. Direct knowledge of the rationales behind code changes and insurer policies allow the editors to explain medical coding, billing, and compliance from concepts to legal implication. Advice tells each subscriber how these rules affect the services and procedures a specialty provides.

At, experts are behind every code change and tool. Jen Godreau, CPC, CPMA, CPEDC, became director of the Website in Oct. 2011. She brings to more than 10 years of coding expertise including writing Coding Alerts, speaking nationally, and educating coders and physicians. She works directly with programmers to develop reliable, timesaving tools that serve subscribers' needs. Under her directorship, the search has been made faster, tools easier to use, and facility coding tools added. Editors contribute advice to the site and outside coders and consultants test the site's usability and features.
