Catherine Short talks with David T. Womack, President and Chief Executive Officer of Practice Management Institute about “The Terrific Need for Continuing Education and Training in Healthcare at all Levels.” As we know, continuing education for administrative employees is an important aspect of running a successful medical office. Changing codes, compliance guidelines and federal regulations can become landmines if the practice is not up to speed on current standards. We discuss the need for staff education for the good of the practice in terms of compliance and profitability, how staff education leads to higher morale and confidence in their skills, and address some examples of types of regulations that impact a medical office.
