The training program will include documentation and coding training for physicians and physician support staff as well as an implementation training schedule to prepare for a successful implementation on October 1, 2014.
CMS has a recommended timeline for preparation and benchmarking from 2013 to October 2014 for small to medium practices. HomeTown Health can help physician teams catch up and stay on track in order to meet the October 1, 2014 deadline.
