To an office manager, the benefits of certification via the AAPPM’s CMOM-Pod (Certified Medical Office Manager—Podiatry) program are probably obvious. But if you’re a podiatrist deciding whether or not to support your executive manager in obtaining certification, you are naturally wondering what the benefits will be for you and your practice.
The truth is that office managers are far from the only beneficiaries of the CMOM-Pod program. Every doctor and every podiatry practice stands to benefit from having a certified office manager helming the business.
Just ask yourself this: How many hours per day do you spend dealing with, taking care of, or otherwise worrying about all the little details that go into running you practice that aren’t directly about providing patient care? We’re talking everything from administration tasks, staffing and employee relations, keeping up with compliance, marketing your practice, financial management, insurance and billing, DME, and all the paperwork associated with all of it. It’s probably a lot of hours, right?
Managers who take the CMOM-Pod course are educated, trained, and testing exhaustively in all these topics and more. As a doctor, what could be better? You have a certified professional who has your back, and who you can trust to handle the business side of your practice while you focus on providing the best possible medical care to your patients.
With a certified manager, you can actually leave your office, at 5 p.m. every night, with your notes and billing done. You can rest easy knowing that you have a talented, capable partner watching out for you, protecting you from risks, and helping you succeed financially.
Sounds like a dream, right? Well, for many years it was, but not anymore! If you want to grow your practice, spend more time on medicine and less on paperwork, increase your profitability, reduce your stress, and build a team of professionals totally dedicated to your success, you need an outstanding office manager helping lead your team. The CMOM-Pod certification program exists to ensure your manager has mastered all the skills needed to provide that support, and it’s one of the best investments you can make.
