SAN ANTONIO – JUNE 6 -PRACTICE MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE® AND THE WEST VIRGINIA STATE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCE STATEWIDE TRAINING INITIATIVE FOR MEDICAL PRACTICES
Practice Management Institute (PMI) today announced an expanded training partnership with the West Virginia State Medical Association (WVSMA), which will facilitate affordable medical practice-specific training and credentialing opportunities for its membership throughout the state.
Initially, WVSMA will host PMI programming at their offices in Charleston beginning in late July, with an expanded outreach program to follow, taking the courses to cities throughout the state. A primary objective is to make courses available in both urban and rural areas.

The initiative is designed to help providers and staff access training for all areas of the business side of healthcare which are necessary in running a successful practice. This includes coding, billing, management, and compliance. Nationally recognized PMI certification courses in these areas will also be offered.

Moore explains, "Our organizations share a common mission to help medical office personnel in all specialties stay on top of the latest industry changes, trends and solutions. In addition, we know the value and importance of the kind of networking opportunities encouraged by the WVSMA, and remain steadfast behind the WVSMA commitment to the success of those they serve."
Angie Brown, WVSMA Director of Communications added, "The WVSMA and PMI are excited about the expanded relationship between our organizations. Since 2010 the WVSMA has offered value-added educational opportunities to its membership and their staffs through our collaborative relationship."
