The AAPPM has always offered innovative and valuable sessions for all conference attendees, including executive managers. But, for the first time ever, the AAPPM has partnered with the nation’s leading and largest provider of non-clinical practice management education, The Practice Management Institute, to offer the Certified Medical Office Manager-Podiatry (CMOM-Pod)®.
This program will expand a manager’s knowledge with detailed modules designed to protect providers from risks, motivate employees and improve the podiatric practice’s financial outlook. The CMOM-Pod program has passed a thorough review process, ensuring that the materials are current and accurate, and testing standards are strictly enforced. Board and faculty members have real-world experience in all aspects of running a successful podiatric practice.
The program covers vital information necessary to operating a thriving podiatry practice including:
- Podiatric Medical Insurance and Billing
- Value Based Reimbursement
- Employee Relations
- Podiatric Medical Durable Medical Equipment
- Podiatric Medical Office Compliance
- Podiatric Medical Marketing
Participants need to enroll in the CMOM-Pod course online to receive their course manual and homework exercises. Then they can watch recorded webinars in which an education specialist reviews each module in detail. The AAPPM Fall Symposium will host an examination review course and administer one live proctored exam (all included in the CMOM-Pod enrollment fee) which will be graded that same weekend. To celebrate the inaugural CMOM-Pod class, Bako Pathology is hosting a graduation party at the Fall Symposium.
In addition to this new certification, the AAPPM Fall Symposium is also hosting a full executive managers track with presentations designed specifically for a podiatric practice administrator, including:
Documentation, coding, PQRS, meaningful use
- Managing your physician(s) and team
- Quality service, leadership skills, employment law, and more!
Remember, once enrolled in the CMOM-Pod course online, participants must also register to attend the AAPPM Fall Symposium to take the live proctored examination to receive their certification. Click here to register online.
