Annual Training

    I am searching for on-line training for all of our employees.  45% of the employees work remotely.   I have used the same HIPAA training for 3 consecutive years,   I am looking for a new on-line training.  I am finding there are very limited choices.
    Does anyone have a suggestion?  I think most of my people skip to the end and answer the questions, especially the executives.
    I'd like one that does not allow that.
    Since we use the Medicare Learning network for Fraud, waste and abuse,  My budget is flexible.

    I'm fond of's privacy and security training game:

    It may not appeal to everyone, but I found it amusing and informative.  It also happens to be free, which never hurts.

    Can anyone point me to the rule/reg that provides CMS' protocol for coding trainings and claims audits for clinicians?

    Our internal auditor is quoting a "10 claims per year" and "1 hour coding training per year" but I cannot locate anything besides the MLN updated rule re:  1 hour on FWA.

    If someone point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful!

    Hi Mary,

    We offer a number of interactive training options through

    I am part owner of a compliance consulting firm where we function as Compliance Officers or support.  I also have a doctorate in education with a focus on adult learning, so I love to develop courses that are a bit more interesting than the typical offerings.  We are a small company, so others find us really reasonable!   Feel free to reach out -
