I was really worried about signing up for this class, but Kem has eased most of those worries. She is entertaining, engaging and the material is presented in a very user friendly fashion. My whole practice is going to be changed when I finish with this program!

Natasha Jankowski, CMOM

I can’t say enough about the professionalism from PMI during my path to excellence in becoming a CMOM. While I am happy that MultiCare Regional Cancer Center is part of a large healthcare organization, learning the components of the course has helped me to appreciate all that goes into managing a practice. I have used the education component of the program daily in my leadership role and am so appreciative to PMI for creating such an organized course. Although I will be the first in the state of Washington to obtain the CMOM-HEM/ONC certification, I am certainly talking it up to other leaders within my organization and I look to lead the way for many CMOMs to come.”

Alicia Duvall, RN, CMOM

From clear customer service technique and personal development to clinical terminology and medical ethics, this course has allowed me to expound upon several years of on-the-job training in two days. I am so grateful to Practice Management Institute for developing a timely certification that coincides with my busy schedule. I’m certain that there are many people – like me – who want to learn how to better serve their patients but may not have the ability to commit to the rigor of higher education."

“From an employer’s perspective, it was important to set a baseline of knowledge for our managers and supervisors, and I wanted to integrate a program that was recognized in the industry. I learned about PMI and the CMOM program from a nearby university medical center that required all their office managers to be certified. The concept having a standard baseline for competence and knowledge – something shared by peers – was an important step toward elevating manager effectiveness.”

Lindsay Usher, MA, PHR, SHRM-CP, PCC, Director of Human Resources - Northern California Medical Associates

"As healthcare professionals, it is essential we equip our management team with the best tools and education to do their jobs to the best of their ability.

PMI offers many educational classes that will equip your management team to be ready for the unexpected and maintain consistent support for their staff. As Zig Ziglar said, “If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.”

“I thought I knew everything I needed to perform my duties. This class was an eye opener! I have been in my job for 10+ years and I can only wish I had taken the course back then. Incredibly valuable information no matter how much experience you have. Highly recommend.”

Jacquelyn Arzooyan, CMOM
Ann Arbor, MI

“My experience in taking the CMOM course has not only provided me with the tools necessary to manage a practice, but also to do it more effectively and efficiently. Before taking the course, I had a background in sales and customer service, with some experience in management. Throughout the curriculum of the class I was continuously impressed with the material covered. I have never worked for a practice or in the medical field, so it was all new, but easily adaptable.

As we went through the program, I could not imagine managing a practice without the material that is cover in the course. I truly feel it is vital for any type of practice in the medical field. As a matter of fact, the information covered can be utilized in any management role. CMOM has given me the confidence to move ahead with my goal to be in the medical field and I'm proud to be a CMOM.”

“In 2015, it was imperative that Hendrick locate a well-established, EXPERT training partner to instruct our providers in ICD-10 E&M coding.  After an extensive search and interview process, PMI was the clear choice.  Through this partnership, Hendrick and PMI were able to deliver successful ICD-10 E&M training to 182 people consisting of 40 physicians across 20 facilities in a 118-mile radius.  This week-long, specialty-specific training helped ensure Hendrick Provider Network did not lose the estimated 50% in revenue related to the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding.

Due to the success of this initial partnership, Hendrick Provider Network has continued to partner with PMI through TWC grants.  The training and certification opportunities with PMI allowed Hendrick Provider Network to build and implement career ladders for numerous employees.   In turn, these educational and career ladder opportunities have driven greater employee confidence, increased employee and physician engagement and ultimately created superior patient confidence and satisfaction in their entire healthcare team.

As a result of our continued partnership with PMI, Hendrick has been able to provide 17 employees with CMC certification, 17 employees with CMOM certification, 8 employees with CMCA-EM certification, 35 employees with Medical Front Office Skills certification and 11 employees with CMCO certification and we look forward to our continued partnership with PMI.  Together, we can make significant strides in healthcare education which will ultimately help provide better patient care.”

“I just wanted to take a moment and share with you how thankful I am for you guys. We honestly have been so anxious about the impending ICD10 roll out and have had a lot of anxiety with our Practice Software upgrades and changes. We’ve been trying to get prepared and I honestly can say that Pam coming here to guide us and teach us as a team and practice has been so critically necessary. We feel as though Pam had an amazing insight, great resource, and a perfect teacher for us. Thank you both for your efforts on getting "operation ICD10” underway with our practice. Couldn’t have done it without you guys!! Thanks again!!”

Chaya Burson, Office Manager, Barker Bariatric Center, Dallas, TX

“My previous job was Practice Administrator in an OBGYN practice for 17 years. PMI was responsible for my landing a fantastic job as Director of Billing at a very large Neurosurgery practice. One of the requirements was being a certified coder. I am very grateful for PMI. I have learned skills that have made me marketable and a great success in the field!”

Naomi Ziemba, CMC

“I wanted to share my comments on why it is so important to be certified in the medical field these days. I am a certified medical coder & have received my CMC thru PMI in August of 2006 with the help and hard work of my instructor Rose Moore. I recently made the move from Danville VA to Rock Hill SC. My certification played a major role in why I was hired in May 2009 with my employer here in Rock Hill SC. Also, the economy was uncertain in early 2009. I was offered a great job at Digestive Diseases Associates at their newest state of the art Endoscopy Ambulatory surgery center in Rock Hill. The physicians here told me that being certified is very important because it shows that an employee is not only qualified for the job, but also cares about the job that they are hired to do.

So, when it comes to getting that certification in your field getting there is a commitment and you also will have a great time doing it! And all of the people you meet makes it all the more fun and interesting!”

Patty Tesch, CMC Rock Hill, SC

“I just wanted to let all of you know that you are indeed a wonderful group to work with. I hear this kind of comment very often when speaking to our certified professionals. They tell me how wonderful the faculty members are or how Donna, Marguerite & Paige spoil them, I mean help them with their needs. Everyone of you are special to many, many people throughout the country and yes, we do make a difference in their lives and professions."

Jean Hawley, Colorado Retina Associates

“On behalf of the CMOM attendees and Akron General, I want to acknowledge what a fantastic job Maxine Collins has done with this week's PMI program.

A hearty thanks to PMI (and especially Max) for a job well done!!! You guys are the best!”
