"With the significant changes occurring with ICD-10, we felt that it was extremely important to inform and educate our medical staff regarding how ICD-10 impacts them and how best to prepare for its implementation. We looked to Practice Management Institute and MedChi for a CME program for our physicians because of PMI's leadership in practice management programs for medical professionals. Physicians and other medical personnel who attended this program were very pleased with both the quality and content of PMI's CME offering."
