FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Health information technology continues to change rapidly, and healthcare practices are challenged to keep up with the latest available technologies and innovations while trying to provide medical care and manage their business. This is especially true for smaller healthcare practices.
The PAHCOM Scholarship Fund, operated by the Professional Association of Health Care Office Administrators, enables managers of medical offices and healthcare practices who would not be able to do so otherwise to obtain continuing education, specific training and professional certification at the annual PAHCOM Conference.
"JDL HealthTech is pleased to donate this year's grand prize, an Apple iPad Air 2, for the PAHCOM Scholarship Fund," said Scott Fluegge, president and general manager. "Our own staff maintain more than 135 industry certifications, and we recognize the importance of ongoing professional certification among healthcare providers as well."
PAHCOM was formed in Florida in 1988 and today comprises a network of thousands of managers of medical offices and healthcare practices throughout the United States.
PAHCOM currently offers training and certification for two credentials: Certified Medical Manager (CMM) and HIT Certified Manager (HITCM-PP).
The 2015 PAHCOM Annual Conference will take place October 20-22 at the Hilton in Clearwater Beach, Fla. JDL HealthTech will offer special conference discounts to PAHCOM members for HIPAA Security Risk Assessments and other HIPAA compliance services.
