Over 30,000 medical billing and coding students have been effectively trained on our Academic product
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
CollaborateMD (CMD), a leading provider of easy and affordable Cloud Medical Billing Software and Practice Management Software has been helping medical billing and coding students across the nation with training since 2006. Over the past 5 years, 30,000 medical coding students have been effectively trained on ClaimGear, the popular educational version of CMD’s medical billing software.
In 2005, Corinthian Colleges, Inc (CCi) ended their searching for a medical billing and coding product that would allow their students to be trained on updated, current and “real-life” software. CCi chose CMD knowing they could deliver the perfect fit for their curriculum; students would be utilizing the exact same software as their commercial customers and because it was cloud-based, the students’ software would always be up to date with the latest healthcare technology and information.
The use of ClaimGear started in 2006 at CCi campuses across the nation in the Medical Insurance Billing and Coding (MIBC) programs. CMD easily customized their commercial medical billing software to allow students to perform billing exercises mimicking real-world scenarios like their commercial counterparts. Students would enter patients, claims, appointments, insurance and patient payments, and run reports. A big plus for students was the fact they no longer had to backup or restore their work for each class. Since ClaimGear is cloud-based, each student has their own account and student can pick up right where they left off each class and use it at home.
To enhance training effectiveness, CMD created an Instructor and Student Web Portal. The Instructor Portal allows for full management of the curriculum, courses, assignments and best of all, instant scoring of the students work with the click of a button. In addition, the portal allows the instructor to monitor the work and progress of each student to ensure their success during and at the end of the course. The Student Portal allows students to manage and grade their own work. If students aren’t happy with their score, they can go back into ClaimGear, fix their errors, and re-score their work to improve their knowledge and understanding of medical billing and coding. Students who complete the course work with a score of 100% are acknowledging by receiving a certificate of achievement personally signed by the CollaborateMD CEO, Mr. Douglas Kegler. Instructors that successfully complete all of the required ClaimGear training are also properly recognized by receiving a signed certificate of achievement from Mr. Douglas Kegler. The certificate of achievement is important because it lets industry know the person owning the certificate is qualified in the use of CMD’s Cloud Medical Billing and Coding Software.
Douglas Kegler, CEO of CollaborateMD, stated, “We believe our educational ClaimGear medical billing software product and portals provides the instructors and students with the appropriate tools to improve the efficiency of training, provide on-time student feedback, and most importantly, helps prepare these students for a successful transition from academia to the real world of gainful employment.”
