Med-Line School of Medical TranscriptionEveryone sees the significant letters after a transcriptionist’s name. They are a goal for many MTs?  Are you ready for your credentials?

While an MT can study by themselves or in informal study groups, experience has shown that the most successful outcome can best be achieved through a well-designed program that is fully compliant with the current credentialing Blueprint. 

Med-Line School has become a leader in credentialing preparation. Our classes are designed by credentialed instructors who continually revise the program based on changes to the AHDI Blueprint as well as feedback from test takers. This has allowed us to continue to have a high rate of success for credentialing.

Med-Line School will be holding its next credentialing course in just a few weeks. The cost is a low $50. This continues to be the lowest cost in the industry. 

As a great way to increase your success, we are also offering some free add-ons valued at over $400. 

  • Nine speciality webinars to help you fine tune your knowledge of critical areas.
  • A grammar refresher course. Focus on areas of concern for most MTs.
  • A Book of Style refresher course. A must know for all.<

What is Your Place in the New EHR Era?

Med-Line’s Medical Coding Bridge Program continues to be a resounding hit. MTs are stepping up to add new skills to their professional tool kit in preparation for the exciting changes we are expecting in the upcoming EHR era. 

It is inspiring seeing the change in approach to the upcoming opportunities in healthcare documentation. In previous transitions, namely digital transcription, speech recognition, and offshoring, MTs have been reactive. They missed the opportunity to get ahead of the changes and many were left in a precarious position. The upcoming EHR and ICD-10 changes are opening up some exciting opportunities for those who are willing to retool and capitalize on this new era in documentation. 

For anyone needing another reason to begin Med-Line’s unique Medical Coding Bridge Program, here is one more. AHDI has approved our Medical Coding Bridge Program for CEC credit. Upon completion of the course you will receive a total of 10 CEC credits: 2 Medicolegal (ML), 6 Transcription in the Workplace (TW), and 2 Professional Development (PD). 

With all the exciting changes and tools available to not only prepare for these changes but to use them to better position the MT for future leadership roles, the time to act is now. So will you?
