Looking for a good book? We know someone who might have a suggestion or two! Meet Taylor Lowder, CPC, CPMAC, CRC, the compliance and audit services supervisor for UofL Health – Compliance, Risk & Audit Services.
Taylor considers herself a “book worm” and can be found reading three or four books at a time. She enjoys switching up genres between fictional novels, personal development and faith-based reads. Her all-time favorites are The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
Taylor began her UofL Health story eight years ago and enjoys reflecting upon the diverse relationships and connections she has formed through her work.
“I love getting to have conversations with each person I meet and hearing their story, their background and their journey to get to where they are now,” explained Taylor.
In her current role, Taylor assists in leading our team of auditor educators and coordinates education efforts for coders. She helps maintain compliance of legal regulations and assists providers in maximizing their revenue opportunities.
“I work to ensure compliance with education is met through medical record audits and work with providers for education on documentation improvement, revenue opportunities and coding and billing guidelines,” Taylor said.
Taylor aims to continue growing awareness of the audit and education team and their library of resources, so they can offer more easily accessible services to providers, residents, coders and anyone else wanting to learn more about documentation, coding and billing regulations.
She lives out our organization’s mission by trying to make the jobs of others a little less stressful.
“I strive to make the burden of documentation and billing as light as possible for providers, so that they can focus on patient care, instead of being overwhelmed and stressed out by the paperwork and billing,” Taylor said.
One thing you may not know about Taylor is that she is originally from Pleasant Lake, Mich., and moved to the Louisville area as a newlywed, with her husband, Matt, and has worked with UofL Health ever since. She grew up around the water and has always wanted to master slalom skiing.
Taylor is a mother to three children, with a fourth on the way. They often pick the music playing in her car, but Taylor doesn’t mind their Disney song selections one bit.
At breakfast time, her go-to meal is an order of sausage, biscuits and gravy. But if she could eat any meal for the rest of her life, she’d have to stick with a crisp chicken caesar salad.If you see Taylor out and about, be sure to say “hello” and ask about her latest read, or ask her to explain slalom skiing. She would love to get to know you!
