QPro - Announces the Launch of an Innovative Testing Site!

Innovation is paving the way once again! Unlike other certification bodies, QPro does not certify the ability to pass a test but instead verifies members qualifications are proven. QPro offers a measurement of knowledge and skills testing. Tests are easy to access online using real-life coding resources and coding books commonly used in the office setting.

Who can Benefit from QPro?

Job Seekers: Use your professional coding and billing skills to acquire a QPro qualification to add to your resume. QPro credentials and proven qualifications will help you get the position you have always wanted. Keep learning with QPro CEUs, FREE with your membership!

Managers: Ensure the person you hire is a qualified professional in the area you are looking to fill. Rest assured QPro members are not just able to pass a coding test; once credentialed they are proven adept in their credential. In addition, to maintain a QPro certification, members are required to maintain current CEUs.

Staffing Agencies: We make it simple for you to hire qualified staff for outsourcing. Every staffing company should be able to hire with confidence and be able to verify proper qualifications. Rest assured when using our testing platform, you have the most up-to-date tests written by professionals with years of coding, billing, management, and auditing experience.  

Why is a Proven Qualification Important?

In the healthcare industry, it is essential to have a knowledge of the codes and regulations necessary for proper billing and documenting patient encounters. Ever-changing regulations and code requirements mean that those involved in this industry need to stay current with the new trends and challenges. Reimbursement by third-party payers is about more than just sending in a claim. Medical coding and billing certifications through QPro let employers and other organizations know that you understand these requirements.

How can we Help you?

QPro (Qualified Professionals) is a member support system dedicated to enhancing coding and management through certification for healthcare coders and managers. Through increased knowledge of coding principles, changes in coding policies, and the experiences of fellow coders and managers in resolving office challenges, QPro members confidently code for maximum and ethical reimbursement.
