CHICAGO – As part of its expansion into international offerings, the fast-growing Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) announced today a new agreement with GCC-based Knwbility Healthcare Training Academy, to become a reseller of HFMA educational content in the Middle East.
Specifically, HFMA and Knwbility have collaborated to tailor HFMA’s popular Certified Revenue Cycle Representative (CRCR) certification for audiences in the Gulf Region, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The new certification is called Certified Revenue Cycle Representative (CRCR) – GCC.
Individuals who purchase access to the certification will receive a one-year HFMA international membership.
“We’re very excited to be working in collaboration with Knwbility to offer this new certification in the Middle East marketplace,” said HFMA Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy Mary Mirabelli. “Knwbility’s established relationships in the region will help HFMA provide education and our new international membership to professionals who have increasingly complex healthcare finance needs.”
For Knwbility, the collaboration expands its repository of content for revenue cycle management stakeholders in countries with emerging revenue cycles.
“Knwbility is investing in the future by partnering with the best,” said Managing Director of Knwbility Mr. Elie Daoud. “We want to offer access to localized course content designed as part of a full-fledged career development center that will enable our members’ careers and bridge the gap between healthcare providers and qualified trained professionals.”
HFMA began expanding its international presence in 2021 by joining the G20’s Health and Development Partnership to focus on the organization’s health-related agenda, including sustainable financing of health. In addition, HFMA joined the International Hospital Federation (IHF) in its mission to improve the overall management of health.
