Meet Virginia Bailey, RN, CCDS, CDI Education and Training Consultant at MedPartners!
When did you start working at MedPartners?
October 28, 2012
Brief summary of skills and/or specialties:
An RN since 1995, Virginia has experience in Critical Care, Case Management, CDS and RAC/Denials. She has been a Certified Clinical Documentation Specialist since 2010. She was a founding member of the Florida ACDIS, serving as Vice-President and then President during its first 3 years in existence.
Virginia joined MedPartners as a consultant for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) as the Clinical Documentation Reviewer from 2012 to 2015 for their ICD-10 Transition Team. She worked in various roles at CHOP including development of ICD-10 physician education, development of new surgical templates that are ICD-10 compliant and translating the hospital’s Preference and Smartsets from ICD-9 to ICD-10 for their EMR build.
As a CDI Educator for MedPartners University (MPU), Virginia is instrumental in content development, consultant mentoring, and the transformative and collaborative learning process for coders and CDI consultants. She is considered a coding savant who has the ability to relate to any type of learner at any level.
What is an interesting/fun fact we would be surprised to learn about you?
I absolutely love Christmas movies, old and new, and cry my way through them every year!
What is your best work memory?
Anytime I come in to the office there is an atmosphere of family that just enfolds you and lets you know that you are part of a fantastic group of people!
What makes working at MedPartners different from any company you’ve ever worked for?
The powers that be make sure everyone feels wanted, needed and like they are making a difference. They take care of us professionally and are there when we need them personally.
What core value (Be the Best, Understand the Urgency, Never Give Up, Have the Courage to Excel or Make A Contribution) do you relate to most, and why?
I have to pick two core values- Make a Contribution and Understand the Urgency with the others almost equal to those! As a consultant, I appreciated Lora Clements as my recruiter because she was always there for me- on time, on target and always happy to help. As an educator and evaluator with MPU, our students and those wanting to join MedPartners, whether they are our consultants or new coding students, I want to be there for them the same way.
