The 4MedPlus Corporation based in Chicago, IL was founded in early 2010 to address the increasing need in the medical community for clear, unbiased online learning relating to health information technology, compliance, government incentives, legal issues, regulatory topics and more. 4Med has been successful in assembling an experienced staff, subject-matter-expert (SME) channel and advisory board to help support their mission. Their growing community of forward-thinking distribution partners help to create a comprehensive network of industry relationships to deliver unique educational content to the healthcare community internationally.
4MedPlus content is designed for clinical providers, directors, managers, consultants, students and staff level employees, challenged to stay abreast of dynamic government programs, technology shifts and compliance regulations. Working with subject matter experts (SMEs) who achieve these objectives in the field, the 4Med strategy team updates all courses in real-time, as changes occur. Courses are assembled into comprehensive certified titles, however all individual lesson modules are also available for convenient custom assembly. Every module and course is fully accredited nationally for Nurses, Physicians, PA’s and Management Professionals
