CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 15, 2018 - The Resource Initiative and Society for Education (RISE) today announced the launch of the RISE Institute, the new educational entity established to meet the needs of its members, providing a variety of educational programs and certifications related to government healthcare (Medicare Advantage, ACA and healthcare reform).

At the forefront of RISE Institute's educational offerings are the new eLearning courses specializing in Risk Adjustment and Advanced HCC Auditing (Hierarchical Condition Category); accompanying certification programs are offered with available continuing education credits. In addition, the RISE Institute expands its educational programs by offering new in-house training, bringing the opportunity for groups, associations and companies to learn on-site with one of RISE Institute's SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) as the instructor.

"We're thrilled to launch the RISE Institute, an answer to member requests for more flexible educational opportunities," said Kevin Mowll, Executive Director, RISE. "The Institute's new e-learning courses, in Risk Adjustment and Advanced HCC Auditing, are based on practical context with interactive case studies available 24/7 for our members. Expanding on our popular in-person conferences, our workshops and other training offerings can now be brought directly to groups thereby cutting down on travel costs with an entire department or function receiving training without leaving their site."

The RISE Institute's expanded reach augments the RISE Events portfolio of over 40-live events including RISE Nashville and West. In addition, User Groups are being expanded to cover cogent topics with more frequent Webinars designed to meet member interests. "Anyone looking to improve their skills, stay up-to-date, and excel in risk adjustment, quality improvement and financial compliance will find the RISE Institute a valuable resource," continued Mowll. "And, this is just the beginning, we'll be bringing on additional programs and certifications in the future."
