I’m a cci edit coder. I currently have the RHIA registered health information administrator. I been thinking of studying for CCS certified coding specialist exam. But none of the jobs I’m interested in require CCS. They want someone that is familiar with data using excel tableau etc I know these things but I have not worked in a role. I guess my question is should I past this CCS exam then focus on trying to get experience as a data analysts or forget about the CCS?

That’s up to you. CCS is designed to certify that you know how to apply medical codes—based on your post it sounds like you might be more interested in building AI/building CAC programs? If that’s the case then a CCS wouldn’t be useful to you.

I'd say if none of the jobs you're interested in require CCS, then don't waste your time on it. You know excel and Tableau, even if you haven't worked jobs with them - as long as you can demoonstrate that you have the skills necessary to do these jobs, focus on landing those interviews. Maybe in the meantime see if you can pick up small projects on contract to use as samples of your ability.

If the jobs you like don't need a CCS, then I would skip it and get experience elsewhere. My dad did CCS a few years ago, and it's not for the faint of heart. Takes a lot of prep, so you'd want it to be worth your time, you know?
