New App Puts AAPC in the Palm of Your Hand

Access our content anywhere, anytime from the convenience of your electronic devices.

Our new AAPC Content app gives you carte blanche to the new electronic Healthcare Business Monthly and the Knowledge Center, where you’ll find a treasure-trove of informative articles, infographics, and timely news. In addition to other member initiatives, we responded to requests to make our information easier to access by developing this free app, which you can download on your electronic devices running Apple iOS and Google Android platforms. With the AAPC Content app, the information you need to do your job is in the palm of your hand.

Locate HBM Articles in a Single Click

Easy to download and a breeze to use, the AAPC Content app lets you read Healthcare Business Monthly anytime, anywhere. The advantages to this are many.

For example, imagine you’re in a meeting and a physician asks for evidence to support your coding, but a computer isn’t available. No problem! Just pull out your smart phone and navigate to that article you read last week, written by one of our many experts in the field. You can even bookmark specific pages, so you can refer to them quickly and easily.

Heavily linked, the electronic version of your member magazine makes it easier to track down content. You can go to an article by clicking on the title or a picture on the table of contents page. You can pull up source documents and websites mentioned in articles, and you can search for one term throughout the magazine. It’s easy and it’s fun.

Access Content
Faster than a Locomotive

Paired with Healthcare Business Monthly in the Content app is our Knowledge Center, which includes all the clinical articles we’ve published in our newsletters and magazines back to 2008, plus timely news and updates, helpful how-to articles, and much more. Need to know about coding colonoscopy? A search will find pages and pages of articles. Need to answer questions about modifier 25? There are 68 pages of content (at the time of this writing). You’ll also find advice pertaining to auditing, compliance, practice management, career growth, taking certification exams, and much more.
