Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP is pleased to congratulate attorney Lisa Shortt, a partner in the firm’s Greensboro office, on being named a certified professional coder (CPC) for health care billing. The CPC certification demonstrates a proven mastery of all medical coding guidelines and regulations including compliance and reimbursement, allowing Shortt to better handle issues such as medical necessity, claims denials, bundling issues and charge captures.
“With her certification as a professional coder in addition to her masters of business administration and her clinical experience as a registered nurse, Lisa has accomplished a rare combination of training, certification, and experience that sets her and our firm apart in the capabilities we bring to addressing health care regulatory and compliance matters,” said Terri Harris, partner in charge of the Greensboro office. “Lisa provides valuable insight and practical approaches to our health care clients, and we are excited to offer this expanded capability.”
Shortt is a member of the firm’s health care and litigation practice groups, focusing on state and federal regulatory compliance, False Claims Act violations, Medicare and Medicaid billing issues, workers’ compensation, and product liability litigation. She received her juris doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law, her masters of business administration from Wake Forest University, and her bachelor’s degree in accounting, with honors, from Guilford College. Shortt formerly practiced as a registered nurse and has five years of experience in cardiac surgery intensive care nursing.
