    I do not have an email on where to get trained. As I suggested in my previous post. Check the job boards like indeed.com and career builder for medical records abstractor positions. Set up a search for that title, that way as positions become available, you can research them and apply. I am being trained onsite. My HEDIS assignment started on Monday. Also type HEDIS jobs (in your area) into your search engine browser. Good luck

    HEDIS project/assignments are starting now. I start mine on Monday . It is my first time as a medical records review abstractor. They are going to train me . I suggest looking on indeed.com and career builder for medical records abstractor or search HEDIS. Then apply. I had a phone interview that lasted about 45 minutes. My background and skill set is diverse. I have been working as a Home Health Nurse (LVN) for 4 years now. Hospice and Private Duty. I also have Case Management and managerial background. Along with my work in a Clinical Trials Company prior to me attending Nursing School. Good luck  I am hoping it opens doors for more opportunities and enhances my resume 

    Private Duty Nursing vs. Agency Nursing

    Private Duty Nursing vs. Agency Nursing

    As an LVN is it legal and ethical to work independent from any agencies? I currently work in Home Health because I do value the one on one individualized care for for my patients. I am a Hospice Nurse and I also work some private Duty cases for pediatric cases that have trach, colostomy, gtubes. I do feel under paid and under valued by these agencies. I happen to know that for a SN the agencies charge $60.00 an hour and I only make $21.42 an hour. I would very much like to work as a concierge home health "private nurse" I am currently insured with personal malpractice coverage. I will now look into getting bonded also. How does one become their own boss? I have many clients/patients that do try to hire me outside the agency that I am contracted with. I would like to make the $60.00 an hour... I thought we were not "allowed" to advertise and function as singular entities. Is anyone out there working independently now? No agencies/hospitals? I realize that as a private nurse I would definitely be in constant communication with clients/patients attending physicians to provide and maintain individualized order care. ?? I work mostly southern Orange County Ca. Am abundance of wealthy clients. I just never knew how to go about or consider working independently.. Help me understand... Can I legally and ethically do this without jeopardizing my license? How does one file there taxes? Independent contractor?
