An interview with Brian Johnson, Senior Director of Online Education at 4Med Approved.

Who is 4Med Approved?
4Med Approved is a leading content developer and educational resource on topics for health industry professionals. It was founded in early 2010 to address the increasing need in the medical community for clear, unbiased resources and online learning on topics relating to health information technology, compliance, government incentives, patient outcomes and more.

We provide unique online e-learning, certification and career gap training programs fully accredited by ACCME and ANCC for medical professionals, including providers, consultants, practice managers and their staff.

Our training is developed by leading Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) in the healthcare industry and updated regularly with the most current regulatory and compliance information.

How do your training courses work?
All of our training is presented entirely online through self-paced or instructor-led programs and is fully accredited for students, nurses, coders, physicians, H&S and others. Courses are available in modular learning blocks or as pre-bundled course titles. Online training allows for flexible scheduling, fast credentialing, and targeted learning. Your CEU/CME is included, and you won’t find a more convenient commute!

What kind of training do you offer?
Our training catalog includes fully accredited training and professional certificates in focused industry categories. We cover everything you need to stay current with government incentive programs, health IT, compliance, patient outcomes, and more. We offer three different levels of learning, based on what each student needs. Professional Certification courses are the most in depth, requiring approximately 9-15 Hours to complete. Specialty Certificates are a moderate length course option, most taking 4-9 Hours at a self paced rate.  Proficiency Certificate Courses are perfect to brush up on the basics or as an introduction to a new area of learning. They typically take 1-4 Hours. We add new titles monthly, so there is always new training available!
4Med training uses our unique 10/10/10 online training method. Students begin by covering a 10 minute reading module, followed by 10 minutes of audio narration and video review of the material. Finally, we assess and retain the knowledge with a 10 question quiz and interactive lessons. Each course includes 3-25 modules. This training method applies to both our Self-Paced training and our Instructor-Led LIVE webinar workshops which are offered on our most popular titles once or twice a month. We are also more than happy to bundle various training modules into one customized course for your organization!
