NHCAA continues to offer premier education and training through our webinar program. NHCAA’s webinars provide participants training opportunities on a wide range of topics from the latest in health care fraud trends and investigative best practices, to skill-building training sessions.
This year, we host both traditional webinar programs along with our expanded webinars, held on a quarterly basis.
The traditional webinar program is a ninety-minute session lead by an industry expert. Participants have the opportunity to:
- Ask questions via the chat function
- Follow a PowerPoint presentation with the NHCAA facilitator and speaker
- Each webinar programs offers CPE credits and when appropriate AAPC or other continuing education credits
The expanded webinar programs provide additional resources to participants to extend the learning and enable a more engaged discussion with the faculty after the event. Highlights of the expanded webinar programs include:
- Access to the webinar faculty and other webinar participants via CONNECT to discuss pertinent issues related to the webinar content.
- Continued learning for teams with thought provoking group discussion (or individual review) questions based on webinar material.
