The WVSMA is proud to be the exclusive West Virginia partner with the Practice Management Institute.
The Inaugural CMOM class was a great success! Thirty-three ambitious office administrators attended the four day inaugural class, which was sponsored by the WVSMA and hosted by St. Francis Hospital in Charleston, West Virginia. The course, held on two consecutive weekends, was taught by Practice Management Specialist Rose Moore, CPC, CPMA, CEMC, CPC-I, CCP, PCS, CMC, CMOM, CMIS, CERT, CMA-ophth, a very capable instructor whose highly motivating teaching style kept the class fully engaged at all times.
In addition to completing the course, participants are required to pass the certification exam in order to become Certified Medical Office Managers. In order to maintain their certification, they also must recertify every year by taking at least 12 hours of CEUs (Continuing Education Units). Becoming a CMOM not only demonstrates that a manager has advanced skills and knowledge; it demonstrates his/her commitment to further continue his/her education in all areas of practice management. The knowledge and skills that a CMOM has can help guard the medical practice against risks, increase the practice's revenue and, most importantly, help the practice reach the ultimate goal of providing better healthcare for all patients.
The WVSMA believes very highly in education for our physicians and their practices and will continue to provide outstanding educational opportunities. In addition to the CMOM class, we recently held a Physician Chart Auditing Workshop and will be holding additional workshops of this type in the coming months.
Due to the high demand for the CMOM class, the WVSMA has scheduled an additional class which will be offered again in Charleston in September. As before, the class will be held on four days over the course of two weekends. The dates for the class are Friday/Saturday, September 10/11 and Friday/ Saturday, September 17/18.
More details will be coming soon.
If you're interested in the class, please contact Barbara Good (Barbara@ wvsma.com) or Karie Sharp (Karie@ wvsma.com) to ensure that you receive priority reservations.
Practice Management Institute (PMI) is one of only three entities whose certification is recognized by Medicare. The WVSMA is proud to be the exclusive West Virginia partner with the Practice Management Institute.
