4Medapproved, the leading provider of online education and certification training on topics relating to Health Information Technology, announced today the launch of a new training partnership with InReach Continuing Education Solutions, through a strategic alliance with the Florida Medical Association. This new combined affiliation will provide 4Medapproved training to an expanded medical association audience in need of quality healthcare technology (HIT) education with CME credit for physicians and CEU’s for nurses.
“We are pleased to offer our accredited online training to medical associations through the InReach sharing network.” says Brian Johnson, Senior Director of Online Education at 4Medapproved. “This joint effort will expand the InReach catalog to provide important HIT titles, starting with a course focused on Meaningful Use (CMUP) and another on the educational requirements for the HIPAA Compliance Officer (CHSP). 4Medapproved offers world-class education regarding the rapidly changing requirements of healthcare technology, with a unique approach designed to help providers cut through red tape and retain best practices for real-world success.”
4Medapproved training is provided online and self-paced, to accommodate any schedule. It incorporates reading with multimedia review and frequent assessments in the unique 10/10/10 learning method. The 4Medapproved course delivery model is a complimentary fit for the thousands of CME and CEU titles currently offered through the InReach sharing network.
The 4Medapproved courses have been accredited for CME for physicians through the Florida Medical Association (FMA). Medical associations who participate in the InReach sharing network may add these courses to their catalogs by searching the titles CHSP (Certificate of HIPAA Security Proficiency for Physicians) or CMUP (Certificate of Meaningful Use Proficiency for Physicians). Clinicians are not required to be InReach subscribers or members of the FMA to purchase the CME courses. Physicians and their staff can visit http://4medcme.com to gain access to the heavily discounted CME versions of 4Medapproved training.
“It is our job to help physicians practice medicine effectively so we strive to offer a wide range of educational opportunities to foster clinical excellence and promote professional development.” Says Melissa Carter, Vice President of Education at the Florida Medical Association. “Establishing this partnership with 4Medapproved enhances our ability to support physicians with high quality, easily accessible education regarding HIPAA and HIT.”
4Medapproved training has also been accredited for nursing CEU’s and college contact hours through a partnership with Corexcel. Corexcel is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation and has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
The courses offered by 4Medapproved fill a critical need for quality healthcare technology education, and we have the unique opportunity to help distribute this important content to medical professionals in a convenient, online format through the InReach Sharing Network.” Says Sara Spivey, Chief Executive Officer at InReach. “We look forward to supporting 4Medapproved’s growth and extending their valuable thought leadership to an even larger audience.”
