As a result of healthcare delivery system reform, otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons are faced with a rapid transition in the way they will be paid for professional services. It is essential that Academy Members have access to the most current and accurate coding and practice management information. The Foundation is pleased to announce a new partnership with AAPC to offer Foundation-sponsored coding and practice management learning opportunities offered at a discounted rate for Members including live workshops, webinars, and eCourses. In addition, Members will have access to a variety of coding tools and resources available through AAPC.
AAPC is the nation’s largest training and credentialing organization for medical coding, billing, auditing, and compliance. With AAPC’s two decades of experience in training and credentialing more than 130,000 professionals, the Foundation is confident no one understands coding regulations and documentation requirements better. AAPC trainers are nationally recognized experts and some of the top educators in the country. Each year, AAPC provides training resources to more than 100,000 coders, auditors, compliance officers, and physicians throughout the country.
This new partnership between the Foundation and AAPC will provide six live workshops per year with one in conjunction with the 2015 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPOSM and another at the spring 2016 Leadership Forum. The other four will be offered regionally throughout the year. These workshops, with Foundation-approved content and faculty, will provide new learning opportunities at the Annual Meeting and Leadership Forum.
In addition to the live events, there will be a minimum of six live (and archived) webinars also developed with content experts from both the Foundation and AAPC. These activities will cover a variety of coding and practice management topics of critical interest to otolaryngologists. Individuals will be able to participate live or view the recorded webinars at their own pace.
This summer, the Foundation is excited to offer Members special access to current AAPC online training resources and tools. This will include their excellent recorded webinars and eCourses on ICD-10 to assist you in getting ready for the October transition.
