Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
4Medapproved, the leading provider of online education and certification resources on topics relating to Health Information Technology has launched a strategic partnership with leading HIT consulting company Wide River LLC. This partnership will offer accredited industry training on important regulatory and compliance topics to critical access and rural hospitals along with hundreds of medical providers currently serviced by the Wide River team nationwide through their new catalog at: http://www.4medapproved.com/education/wideriver/
This alliance will also introduce the expansive 4Medapproved medical community audience to Wide River’s quality consulting services for Meaningful Use, PQRS, EHR migrations and more.
Wide River understands that the fiscal, technological and regulatory pressures facing their clients have never been greater, while operating budgets have never been tighter. Being asked to do more with less is not new in healthcare, but with the rapid acceleration of healthcare reform, all providers, especially those serving in rural and medically underserved areas, find themselves struggling to keep pace.
“There is a real need throughout all settings of care for access to affordable, quality education on important topics like HIPAA, Meaningful Use and PQRS for both the front line staff who are being tasked with implementing change, as well as their department managers, whose job depends on successfully leading their staff’s efforts. With decreasing budgets for outside assistance, healthcare facilities across the country are asking their staff to do more with less, but this is only possible through advanced and continuing education of their personnel. It is my great pleasure to announce Wide River’s partnership with 4Medapproved, as they are able to not only deliver this education where and when our clients need it, but they do so with excellent customer service and industry experts who really understand the challenges facing the healthcare foundations of our communities,” said Todd Searls, Executive Director of Wide River.
4Med training is provided online in both self-paced and instructor-led formats to accommodate busy schedules and various learning styles. It incorporates reading with multimedia review and frequent assessment modules in the unique 10/10/10 learning method. Volume licensing and team leader controls are also available for larger group training.
Accreditation by The International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) for college contact hours and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for nursing CEUs are provided for 4Med courses through a partnership with Corexcel. Additional accreditation for ICD-10 training from AHIMA through a partnership with Libman Education and national CME for physicians through accreditation by the Florida Medical Association (FMA) is also applied to select titles.
“The team at 4Medapproved is pleased to establish this partnership with Wide River LLC. Their focus on rural and critical access facilities will help the 4MedPlus Corporation achieve its goal to reach underserved communities and providers nationwide and address their HIT learning needs,” says Wendy Whitmore, Chief Information and Learning Officer for 4MedPlus Corporation. "In addition, we feel that our audience will benefit from increased awareness of Wide River's professional consulting experience and high quality service portfolio."
