CDME in Spotlight at Medtrade

August 1, 2016

ATLANTA – A 6-hour workshop on day one of Medtrade 2016 aims to help providers gain a crucial competitive advantage. In An Introduction to the Certified Durable Medical Equipment Specialist (CDME), speakers Jeff Hedges, CDME, and Michelle Yoon (pictured, left), credentialing manager at the Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) will prepare providers to attain their CDME distinction.

“The Durable Medical Equipment Specialist (CDME) certification gives your DME businesses a competitive edge over businesses without a certified DME Specialist,” says Carrie Green (pictured, right), marketing manager at Owings Mills, Md-based BOC. “Having a CDME on staff provides your customers with a more personal and informed experience. A CDME can assist customers with product selection and proper use of the products selected.”

The BOC Workshop is scheduled for Monday, Oct 31, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., in Room C203 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Medtrade takes place Oct 31-Nov 3, 2016.

For those who wish to earn the CDME, Green says it is “very attainable.” The prerequisites for taking the CDME exam are a high school diploma and 500 hours (approximately 13 weeks of full-time work) of documented experience at a DME facility. “Anyone interested in learning more about the CDME certification can visit the CDME page on our website,, or attend one of the workshops we hold at Medtrade and Medtrade Spring,” adds Green.
