The new year is off to a good start, and for coders, it is the time to get re-energized about coding, education and CEU's. My Friends @ SPINELINE® offer FREE EDUCATION in regard to spine coding, reimbursement and practice management.
However... even if you are not currently working in an ortho or spine centered practice, this is a great opportunity to check out spine/ortho, refresh what you learned when you became a certified coder, or simply learn something NEW!
SPINELINE® has included education on a wide variety of topics for the office, hospital inpatient, management, and physicians... Below is a re-cap of what they're offering for winter/spring session.
Here's the address where you can sign up and it gives you the full description of each learning webinar, who is presenting and if CEU's are offered. http://www.medtronicsofamordanek.com/spineline/registration
Quick, Quick... Get Signed up, and take advantage of these GREAT classes.
Plus.. I want to send a big THANK YOU TO Leigh and Debbie for allowing me to share this with you!!!
