Renae Moch, MBA, FACMPE, Director for Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health, has been designated as a Fellow in the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE), the certification and standard-setting division of MGMA-ACMPE. Fellowship in the ACMPE (FACMPE) is the highest distinction in the medical group practice management profession. This accomplishment will be formally recognized in October at the ACMPE Luncheon and Fellows Convocation, held in conjunction with the MGMA 2013 Annual Conference in San Diego.
To achieve Fellowship, Moch first earned the Certified Medical Practice Executive (CMPE) designation by passing rigorous essay and objective examinations that assess knowledge of the broad scope of medical practice management, as outlined in the Body of Knowledge for Medical Practice Management. This includes business operations, financial management, human resources management, information management, organizational governance, patient care systems, quality management and risk management. To earn Fellowship, Moch submitted a professional paper, entitled “Organizing a Patient Centered Medical Home Practice”, documenting the objectives and results of an investigation into this health-care management topic.
Today, 6,600 MGMA-ACMPE members are participating in ACMPE board certification and Fellowship; 600 have achieved the Fellow credential nationwide. Moch will be the third healthcare professional to achieve this designation in the state of North Dakota.
Moch started as the Director for Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health in May of 2013. Prior to this, she worked as a Practice Management Strategist for the American Academy of Family Physicians in Leawood, KS and managed the Bismarck Family Medicine clinics for Sanford (formerly Medcenter One.) Moch has an MBA in Healthcare and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Mary in Bismarck.
