Online Learning Management System adds Zuelke-based Financial Coordinator program

January 18, 2011 – Acworth, GA – Trapezio announces the official launch of the Academy of Financial Coordinators, a new online course designed specifically for the Orthodontic Financial Coordinator. The new Academy program, authored by Zuelke and Associates, Inc., offers orthodontic practices access to one of the industry’s most comprehensive and proven financial management systems. The expertise of Zuelke’s methodologies combined with the convenient online access of Trapezio’s Learning Management System (LMS) will give users the ability to immediately implement efficient processes related to risk identification, credit management, accounts receivable control, collections, practice metrics and much more.

The in-depth content of the Zuelke Financial Coordinator Certification course was developed as a “needed outlet [for access to the Zuelke systems and fundamentals] by practices all across the nation.” The informative and engaging 10-course program details the financial process from start to finish and is perfect not only for the experienced or novice financial coordinator but also for office managers and doctors. “Trapezio is honored to add the financial program to our online learning center,” said Chad Greer, President of Trapezio. “The principles in this course have been battle tested for over 30 years. There is little argument that Zuelke & Associates’ concepts can help lead to better financial health for practices of all sizes.”

Unlike most continuing education, the Trapezio LMS not only structures content as building blocks but also requires an examination at the end of each lesson. Successful completion of the course requires a passing average score on the ten exams. Scoring is securely stored in the system for administrative review and future assessments. This competency-based education model improves retention compared to generic web-based seminars or webinars. “While not intended to replace the one on one, multi-day, training offered by in-office consulting, this course has been designed to provide a solid level of basic training for the Financial Coordinator position in the orthodontic office,” said Paul Zuelke, President of Zuelke & Associates, Inc. “Upon successful completion of this course, the Financial Coordinator will have the tools to help the practice gain greater case acceptance, to eliminate patient delinquency, and to generate higher productivity and profitability and, most importantly, a greater quality of life within the practice.”

In today’s cloud computing environment, traveling is no longer a necessity to gain access to advanced and proven education on orthodontic fundamentals. Trapezio’s LMS provides easy access to not only the Financial Coordinator program but other orthodontic related training for everyone in the practice. With over 45,000 examinations already administered, the Trapezio LMS brings affordable continuing education to the doorstep of orthodontic practices worldwide.
