Gail Eminhizer CMM, CGCS, HITCM-PP of Digestive Health Associates has successfully passed the PAHCOM national certification examination for Health Information Technology Certified Managers for Physician Practice (HITCM-PP). Gail is one of the very first in our industry to achieve this certification.
The Professional Association of Health Care Office Management (PAHCOM), administers the examination to validate the knowledge and skills of office managers of small group and solo physician practices throughout the nation. The comprehensive three hour examination challenges the candidate’s knowledge of nine subject areas that include HIPAA, HITECH, EHR Implementation, Health Information Exchange, and a host of other topics that are necessary to run an effective and efficient physician office practice. Technology has become an integral component of medical practice management and the HITCM-PP examination motivates candidates to be creative in resolving conflicting demands in today’s increasingly complex physician practice environment.
PAHCOM is a national association with headquarters located in Florida.
