Availity conducts one-hour training using web and phone conferencing tools, allowing you to attend using the Internet and your phone. Availity refers to these training sessions as "webinars." Live webinars require registration and are offered on a scheduled basis.
In a live webinar, you can view the trainer's actions in the application and hear instructions as the trainer demonstrates how to submit transactions in the Availity Health Information Network. At the end of the webinar, the trainer offers a live question and answer period.
