This revision incorporates the important changes both in the medisoft™ Version 11 program and in the medical office environment. Computers in the Medical Office offers training and applications using full-featured, state-of-the-art software and current, realistic medical office cases while building transferable computerized medical billing and scheduling skills. Although it is correlated to Medisoft software, students who complete CIMO learn the appropriate terminology and skills necessary to use any patient billing software program with minimal additional training.
