Sign in, click your profile image in the upper right corner, select My Development, and then click on the Certifications tab near the center of the page. You'll see your certifications along with their expiration date. 

HFMA requires that eligible CRCR certificants gain continuing competence in the revenue cycle arena by taking a short assessment every two years.  The program provides healthcare organizations with a means to ensure that their revenue cycle staff has the body of knowledge necessary to meet their demands.

Examining the path to recovery for hospital volumes and revenues

As states loosen and lift their "shelter in place" orders and restrictions on hospital elective procedures, hospital volumes will begin to return. The question is: What will the recovery look like? Ensemble Partners and SSI Group have joined forces to examine the available data; by combining hospital volume and revenue data with procedure rescheduling data from over 1,200 hospitals, we are gaining insights on what the recovery will look like. We will look at which states are showing early upward trends, which procedures are returning and how quickly, and how you can leverage these trends to accelerate recovery back to "normal."

New patient access, interoperability and information blocking rules

Health care professionals need to understand that the rules governing health information are changing.  Under current final rules, providers and health plans must share data directly with patients, and if a patient requests their data be shared with an app on their phone, you must comply.

These new rules change the nature of health information as we know it, and they bring new challenges-and new actors - into the more traditional health care market.

Learn about these new rules, where they came from, and what they could mean for you and your business from an expert that helped craft the federal statute creating these new rules.
