A Message from the Board
Stop for a moment and consider the responsibility you have as a professional medical manager.
Every day you manage employees (Human Resource Management); you maintain the strategic direction of your medical group and keep your physicians moving forward (Governance); you maintain the flow of the office, and deal with outside vendors (Business Management); you make sure technology is in working order and up to date (Information Management); you oversee the safety of your patients ( Patient Care Systems), you maintain regulatory requirements such as OSHA, and corporate compliance (Risk Management); you make sure your practice is reporting data necessary to demonstrate quality measures (Quality Management);and finally you analyze and benchmark your practice financial data and report to your physicians on the financial position of your practice (Financial Management).
By merely doing your job every day you are working with The Body of Knowledge from MGMA.
Why not put your knowledge and expertise to the test- literally? Certification is something that each of you can achieve! There are three simple steps:
1) Join MGMA-ACMPE
2) Pass a multiple-choice exam and a scenario-based exam given at nearby testing sites. The next exams we be given December 1-15, 2018 and registration will be open October 22 thru November 6, 2018.
3) Accumulate 50 hours of CEUs (continuing education units) every three years. You can gain these by attending the MGMA-Utah Spring conference , the MGMA Annual Conference, local MGMA meetings, participating in on-line study groups, educational webinars, and by reading articles in the MGMA Connection magazine or completing other on-line assessments through ACMPE.
If you are interested in a study group, please contact me and I will assist you in finding one.
