MHIMA Member Spotlight 

Brenda Huston, RHIT, CPC

I became an AHIMA member in 2015 while studying to get my associate's degree and obtained my RHIT in October 2018.  Currently am the HIM Director at Bitterroot Health Daly Hospital in Hamilton Montana.  I began working in healthcare at St Patrick’s Hospital, Missoula MT in 1984 as a transcriptionist, quickly moved into coding and obtained my CPC, spent 25 plus years coding interventional radiology, cardiology, Emergency room, Obstetrics, and gynecology, pain management and anesthesia. With the knowledge I have gained I moved into practice management in a pain management clinic.  In 2010 my husband and I moved to North Dakota where I continued to code and soon became the director of medical records where I began my journey to become an RHIT. In May 2017 we then moved back to Missoula where I became the director of revenue cycle for professional service at Community Medical center.  With the desire to live in the Bitterroot where I was raised as a child, I always had an eye out for open positions in Hamilton.  Since joining Bitterroot Health in January 2021, my husband and I have moved to Hamilton with our two dogs Gracie and Lilly.  We enjoy the outdoors, camping, side by side riding.  I enjoy reading, relaxing listening to the sound of nature.    With a desire to audit and investigate denials, my desire to accomplish new goals never ends.

Congratulations to Newly Credentialed Members
