Executive Certification (CRCE)

Executive Certification is an extensive online proctored exam directed to all executive/senior leaders within the healthcare revenue cycle industry, to help equip them for strategic management of the business. This certification possesses the highest level of difficulty combining content knowledge of the business with critical thinking and communications skills. AAHAM offers two types of Executive certification; one focused on the revenue cycle within an institutional (hospital, health system) environment and the other focused on the revenue cycle in a professional (physician, clinic) environment. Dual certification is available for those interested in obtaining certification in both specialties.

The eight hour online, proctored CRCE exam requires extensive in-depth knowledge of the revenue cycle.
