Dr. Martin's Story - Summary

Meet Dr. Martin, a dedicated urologist working as an employed physician for a hospital. Dr. Martin had all the necessary knowledge to do her job, but she faced a challenge - she couldn't earn her bonus due to a lack of work RVUs. After reviewing her contract, Dr. Martin realized that there was no way for her to generate the required work RVUs with her current schedule.

Around the same time, Dr. Martin was having her first child and went on maternity leave. During her leave, she was determined to find a solution to her bonus problem. She came up with an idea: learning coding and billing could potentially help her earn the bonus. She signed up for the PRS urology coding course and spent time mastering the concepts.

Hear Dr. Martin tell her story

Upon returning to work, Dr. Martin reached out to the coding team and requested that no claims be changed without her consultation. Together, they learned the best way to bill for the services she was providing. Dr. Martin's newly acquired skills allowed her to see fewer patients while still generating more work RVUs.

Before learning coding and billing, Dr. Martin was seeing about 250 patients per month and averaging 400 to 500 work RVUs. After taking the course and applying the concepts, she was seeing 170 patients per month and was able to generate double the work RVUs - 800 to 1000.

Dr. Martin's hard work paid off, and she was then able to land her dream job and negotiate a great salary at a new institution using the coding, billing, and work RVU production data.

In summary, Dr. Martin faced a problem, learned a new skill, collaborated with her team, and achieved her goals. With her newfound knowledge, she was able to work smarter, not harder, and get the results she wanted.

Practice Freedom

Practice Freedom means being able to provide patient care while maximizing income, making operations more efficient, choosing preferred insurance companies, and focusing on the patients you want to help.

By having this knowledge and a competent team, you can achieve Practice Freedom and have time and energy to provide the best care possible to your patients and have a happy life.

How to Achieve Practice Freedom



Peace of Mind

Fight Burnout


Cardiologists and Cardiology APPs have had to apply the "Learn As You Go" method for documentation, coding, and billing.  This leads to gaps in knowledge and institutional trends that leave money on the table.  

Combine that with the Payer's data, increased sophistication, and tools and that leads to Medicare and Private Payers taking advantage of Cardiologists and APPs.

You are not alone there is not one Cardiologist or APP that is not impacted.  In fact, Payers are shorting payments by an average of 10% (and this it to the Top Line!).


Save time knowing the documentation best practices, tips, and shortcuts.  Understand what you need to include for: take back resistant documentation.

Having a team that is all on the same page pays dividends in time savings.

Don't interrupt your day looking up Modifiers, instead learn the concepts and include the clear directions in your documentation for your coding and billing staff doesn't have to ask you questions.

Peace of Mind

Do you get a pit in your stomach when you get an audit request?  Cardiology and APPs will get audits but as a DCB Cardiology Fellow you won't worry about them costing you money and time.

Put your mind at ease knowing you are not being taken advantage of by Payers.  Knowing that your documentation, coding, and billing is accurate and you are on top of all the upcoming changes gives you peace of mind

Fight Burnout

In a recent article "Medscape Physician Burnout and Depression Report 2023: I Cry and No One Cares", it was reported that 47% of Cardiologists report burnout.  They say that the major cause was all the bureaucratic demands.

When asked what would help, the top two answers were:
1. Increased income
2. A more manageable work schedule

Well becoming a DCB Cardiologists Fellow helps eliminate the top two issues.
