Mario L. Fernandez

CEO, PDC Group of Companies
CEO, Healthcare Coding and Billing Institute, Inc. (HCBI)

Mr. Fernandez obtained his MBA in 1979 from the Kellogg School of Business, Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. He served in key positions in strategic planning, marketing and investment banking for top US companies such as Abbott Laboratories, The Andersons, and Dean Witter from 1979 to 1994, aside from maintaining his own restaurant business. He went back to his native Philippines in 1994 where he was Marketing Head for Bayantel and Head of Landline Installations for Islacom. In 1997, Mr. Fernandez founded Pinoy Data Capture Inc., one of the pioneers in the Philippine BPO industry. PDC has been going strong since its foundation, serving US-based clients in data processing, database management, and software development.

In 2011, because of an increased demand for certified medical coders in the Philippines and no local institution for them to obtain training and certification, Mr. Fernandez founded the latest addition to his companies, Healthcare Coding & Billing Institute, the first medical coding school in the Philippines to address this growing need. HCBI was accredited by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) as one of only two sites outside the United States to administer their CPC Certification exams.

Since 2011, HCBI has produced more than 1,700 graduates through their classroom training course with a 98% passing rate!

In 2019, HCBI successfully converted its classroom training module to eLearning. On HCBI’s first Test group, it was able to produce one Magna Cum Laude! After its Test group, HCBI continued to further enhance its program to what it is now, the best value for money online CPC training course!
