Certified Professional Medical Auditor Training

Certified Professional Medical Auditor (CPMA)

Boost your career with the CPMA (Certified Professional Medical Auditor) certificate. Medical audits are an essential part of compliant and cost-effective medical practices. Whether it is RAC (Recovery Audit Contractor) audits, refusal of private salaries or simply security, more and more doctors are planning to have regular audits carried out. The risk of not conforming to documentation and coding is too great. As a CPMA, you can use your proven understanding of coding and documentation guidelines to improve the income cycle of almost any healthcare practice.
