In the latest post on our series of social media profiles you should be following—we’ve done Instagram, YouTube and more in the past—we’re turning our sights to the most popular social media channel in the world: Facebook. With approximately 2.5 billion users, Facebook dwarfs the next-biggest social media channel (Reddit, which has 430 million active users).
If you’re on Facebook and involved in any way with medical coding or billing, here are five profiles you need to be following:
More than 10,000 people follow this page, which is hosted by a private medical coding consultant. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at medical coding and insights from a medical coding veteran with 15 years of experience. Posts often integrate medical codes with funny videos for humor that only those in the industry will appreciate.
If images, graphics and videos are your cup of tea, WebMD is a great follow. They’re both informative and engaging and a great profile to follow if you’re involved in the medical industry in any way. For coders, this page helps you stay updated on major medical updates and increases your medical knowledge in general.
This is a private group, so you’ll need to apply to get in, but once you do, you’ll have a great resource for furthering your career. Whether you’re a medical coder in training, a new medical coder or a seasoned professional, this group is a great resource for finding your next fulfilling medical coding or billing position.
While the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) likes to keep things serious on other channels, they get a little more casual on Facebook. You’ll still get plenty of insights and tips about medical coding, but there are plenty of laid-back posts and live videos as well.
Just as we are on Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms, Medical Coding Academy is an active participant on Facebook. We regularly post news about courses, insights into medical coding and various tips and tricks. We also show off our lighter side as well, from Mrs. Delissa Ortega dancing to funny stories from students. Give us a follow!
Whether you’re on Facebook or not, you can benefit from a medical coding class at Medical Coding Academy. Click here to learn more about our courses and sign up.
