MedPartners University Training for Consultants
The demand for HIM consultants is greater than ever. But with the entire field of healthcare undergoing a period of evolution and disruption, it’s essential for today’s consultants to cultivate new areas of expertise in order to remain relevant. That’s why we created MedPartners University (MPU) – an online education portal specifically designed for HIM consultants. Discover all that MPU has to offer, and determine for yourself if it’s the resource you need to take the next step in your career.
MPU offers three distinct areas of study: Medical coding, clinical documentation improvement, and case management. This granulated approach ensures that participating consultants get the training that is most relevant to their current expertise, rather than a blanket introduction to basic HIM concepts.
MPU is an appealing option for busy professionals because all learning resources can be accessed remotely, and outside of a rigid schedule. Classes are administered through Blackboard Learn, an intuitive education portal that combines all the features of a classroom with the best of today’s digital resources and tools.
MPU courses are lead by experienced HIM professionals who have spent their entire careers refining techniques and best practices and defining the cutting edge. Our roster of instructors has over 80 years of combined professional experience. Expertise is not all they have to offer, though. Despite the online configuration, these instructors are available to answer questions, carefully review assignments, offer advice and encouragement, and generally serve as career mentors. MPU also offers support to help learners get the most out of the Blackboard Learn platform.
Not matter what aspect of HIM consultancy interests you, you can find courses that are relevant to both your career goals and your future employer’s needs. Here is a sampling:
- ICD-9-CM Continuing Education
- ICD-10-CM/PCS (Coding, CDI, and Trauma) Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Continuing Education
- Clinical Documentation Improvement
- Inpatient Coding Knowledge Assessments
- Outpatient Coding Knowledge Assessments
- Refresher Courses – Anatomy & Physiology, Pathophysiology, Medical Terminology, and Pharmacology.
In addition to the courses offered through MPU, we have also created an archive of reference materials that is accessible to all consultants after graduation. This has proved to be an invaluable resource, and one that is not available anywhere else to such a comprehensive degree. We routinely update this archive with newer and better materials so that it can continue to serve the changing needs of HIM consultants.
