NEW 2023 CME Activity

The purpose of this educational platform is to assist in allowing providers to remain current and
compliant in the ever-changing world of documentation, coding, and billing. There were
sweeping changes in office coding in 2021 and a similar overhaul will unfold for the hospital,
Emergency Department, and post-acute settings in January 2023. This platform will allow
access to help empower providers with knowledge to master these changes. The creator of the
content is a practicing family medicine physician with over 30 years in practice – 17 years of
which were in a blended ambulatory/inpatient medicine setting – who has been a Certified
Professional Coder (CPC) since 2000. The educational curriculum is focused on practical
applications of these concepts to align with the needs faced in primary care.
