130640| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Workplace Harassment Investigation|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: 
This webinar undertakes to explain the process of internal harassment and bullying investigation. Participants will learn how to handle harassment complaints and conduct the investigation to determine facts and minimize liability by analysing evidences, drawing conclusions, writing the formal report outlining the investigation and taking corrective actions where necessary.

Why should you Attend: The EEOC requires that employers receiving a complaint, or otherwise learning of alleged harassment in the workplace, to "investigate promptly and thoroughly take immediate and appropriate corrective action by doing whatever is necessary to end the harassment, make the victim whole by restoring lost employment benefits or opportunities, and prevent the misconduct from recurring". That's a tall order to ensure a just and fair handling of a harassment complaint - an essential order that all organizations are required, by law, to follow. The investigation process is, perhaps, the most critical element in dealing with harassment. 

This training program helps in identifying the critical components of harassment/bullying investigation in order to determine correct facts and reducing liabilities.

130639| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Time management tips and tricks to keep you on track and be more efficient and effective.|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 Overview: Everyone gets the same amount of hours in a day, week, month and year. So, why is it that some people get so much more done than others? Time can be one of the most elusive resources a business owner and/or manager have. You may have a system for running all the other aspects of your business. But, are you managing your time efficiently and effectively? 

What is Time Management? Time Management refers to managing time effectively so that the right time is allocated to the right activity. Time Management refers to making the best use of time as time is always limited. Time Management plays a very important role not only in organizations but also in our personal lives. 

With a good time management system in place you should be able to:

  • Know your priorities
  • Get all work done on time and at the level of quality needed
  • Know what tasks you really enjoy about your work and are good at
  • Know what tasks you really do not enjoy about your work but know you are the person that needs to do it
  • Know what tasks you should not be doing and someone else would be better at it
  • Have the time you need and want for your family
  • Have the time you need and want for your yourself and your friends
  • Not feel guilty when at work, feeling like you should be at home
  • Not feel guilty when at home feeling that you should be at work

How do you manage your time now? Are you spending the right amount of time, at the right time, on the right activity? Are you as efficient as you could be? Are you ready to make the changes necessary to make your work and personal time management better? 

This session will provide the framework you need to take better control of your time and enable you accomplish the things that are most important and better plan for how the rest will get done. It will help you to determine an appropriate balance between your business and personal life. 

Why should you Attend: We all have the same amount of hours in a day. Do you have a system in place to assure you use your time efficiently and effectively? 

Do you feel:

  • You do not have enough hours in the day to get "it" all done?
  • Too much of your work time is eating into family and personal time?
  • Guilty when at work, like you should be at home?
  • Guilty when at home, like you have work you really need to get done?
  • You have little time to yourself?
  • You have too many interruptions that are keeping you from getting things done?
  • You are not in control of your day, week, month or even year?

This session will help you take control of your business and personal time and be more efficient and effective with the 24 hours a day and seven days a week we all have at our disposal.

130638| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Virtual Leadership: Practical Tips to Build, Engage and Manage Remote Teams|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: 
Virtual team is the new reality of 21st century workplace. Owing to the increasing competition in the marketplace, decentralization and globalization of work processes and advances in information and communication technologies, companies, to remain competitive, require flexibility and agility in their delivery of products and services.

Virtual teams play a key role to meet these demands. Also, these companies are adopting the virtual team approach to reduce their operating costs, encourage knowledge sharing among their employees to promote organizational learning and expand their business hours to 24/7. 

Unfortunately, having solid business reasons for implementing a virtual strategy does not mean that strategy is always going to be executed well. The problem is that too many companies treat their virtual teams the same way they treat teams that share the same physical locations. 

In other words, virtual teams may be increasingly popular but they're not necessarily successful. Large number of HR practitioners as well as organizational leaders has come to realize that virtual teams are different from traditional teams. They now must shift their attention towards devising and utilizing new tools and techniques to manage the unique leadership challenges posed by virtual and dispersed teams. 

Why should you Attend: Many companies recycle the same guidelines and best practices they use for their co-located or in-person teams and hope for the best. That just doesn't work. Virtual teams and face-to-face teams are the proverbial 'apples and oranges' - and leaders who recognize this fact are the ones whose teams succeed. Virtual teams regularly fall victim to four pitfalls:

Lack of clear goals, direction, or priorities - Because it is tougher to communicate with team members who are geographically dispersed, it is often difficult to keep all team members focused on the same goals, especially over time.

Lack of clear roles among team members- In virtual teams, it is especially important for members to clearly understand their individual roles and how their work impacts other team members.

Lack of cooperation and trust - Because there's limited or no face-to-face contact the process of establishing trust and relationships that lead to group cooperation will be more difficult and can lead to a silo mentality. 

Lack of engagement - With virtual teams, people can easily become bored and "check out" because there is a lack of dynamic face-to-face interaction and because there are more distractions.

Also, research has shown that the leadership style of the team or project leader has greater effects on the productivity of virtual teams as compared to that on the traditional collocated teams. It's important for all the virtual team leaders or managers to revisit their leadership approach. 

Areas Covered in the Session: The focus of this webinar is to help companies maximize their investment in virtual teams as well as helps leaders enhance their effectiveness in leading virtual teams. These seven points will be covered.

  • Identify the Nine Critical success Factors for Virtual teams to get a higher ROI
  • Review the four-dimensional model of Virtual Teams: Purpose, People, Link, Time
  • Do a reality check: The five Advantages and Three Disadvantages of Virtual Teams
  • Understand and put into Practice the Three Leadership Styles Essential for Virtual Team success
  • Discover how to Manage the Social Isolation in Virtual team; Dealing with out of sight out of Mind Challenge
  • Learn to set up a Virtual Team- Answering two Critical questions: What do we want to Accomplish? How do we do it?
  • Identify Seven Critical competencies of Virtual Team members beyond Just good Technical and Communication Skills


Who Will Benefit:

  • CEO's
  • COO's
  • VP of Human Resources
  • Chief Learning Officer
  • Directors

They want to move up to the next level – ahead of their competition – into new areas – over and around obstacles – beyond business as usual – towards a sustainable future.

130637| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Mentoring Employees: How to Unlock Potential,Enhance Loyalty,and Boost Productivity|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: There are many challenges that organizations and people are facing today. The environments that we live and work in are constantly changing. Organizations are looking for ways to unlock the potential of their employees, create an environment that inspires loyalty and boost the productivity of employees. 

This webinar will look to address these challenges through "The Gift of Mentoring." Mentoring is quickly becoming a valued business solution to these challenges. Organizations are also facing a leadership talent shortage, an aging work force, talent shortages, mobile work force, lack of succession planning and succession development, disengaged work force to name but a few. 

This webinar will look at the business value of mentoring. Statistics clearly show the value that organizations and their people see when mentoring is embraced as part of the organizational culture. Creating a mentoring movement within an organization is a powerful tool. We will explore the aspect of personal and professional growth through the power of mentoring. You will see how important it is to understand and address the personal side in a mentoring arrangement. Failure to do so can result in professional growth blockages. 

This webinar will explore what a mentoring movement/culture looks like and how it can create a continuous learning environment. With a combination of formal and informal mentoring in place the foundation has been laid for continuous learning and growing. 

We will take a look at where we are today with engagement on a global perspective. Not much has changed regarding the ability of organizations to wrap their hands around the engagement factor in their organization. Mentoring is most definitely a way for us to be able to do that. Research has shown that a mentoring movement/program is a solution to the engagement problem. 

Creating those trusted relationships through the mentoring process provides leaders and managers with the tools to help unlock the potential of their employees. The tools that are part of their mentoring tool kit are tools that are transferable to their home, community and work place. 

This webinar will provide some insight into what some of these tools are. We will touch on relationship building and what that can do for us as well as effective communication. In the majority of the research that I have done in organizations those two things are predominantly the main cause of dissension within the organization. Sadly it is evident at all levels in the organization. 

This is a webinar that you cannot afford to miss. It will unlock the door to "The Gift of Mentoring" and provide you the insight needed to embrace mentoring as a business solution in your organization and to spearhead your personal growth. 

Why should you Attend: Organizations are continue to struggle with how to get the most from their employees and acknowledge the value that they bring to the organization. Organizations that can demonstrate to their employees that they are truly the most important part of the success of the organization are organizations that are successful. 

Mentoring is quickly becoming a valuable process that organizations are implementing. A winning combination is one where informal and formal mentoring are blended into the culture of the organization resulting in a positive work environment that engages, empowers and creates a sense of accountability for all who are part of the organization. 

This webinar will unlock the mentoring secret and will explore a number of different approaches to mentoring. If you have any doubt about whether or not mentoring can bring value to your organization then this is the webinar that you cannot afford to miss. 

With so much change taking place in the world today we struggle to find that life preserver that helps us make sense of the changes and provides us with the tools to remain afloat. Mentoring is that life preserver and it can help us navigate through the change process as our organization continues to grow. 

With a mentor program in your organization employees will be more productive, will be loyal to the organization and will prosper and grow in a work environment of continuous growth and learning. 

This is definitely a webinar that you must attend. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Business value of Mentoring
  • Personal and Professional Growth Mentoring
  • Creating a continuous Learning Environment through Mentoring
  • Creating Engaged Employees through Mentoring
  • Why Mentoring is on the increase in Organizations

130636| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Driving Employee Retention through Assimilation|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

 

Overview: 
Assimilation is the process of properly absorbing a new hire into the organization so that they not only stay with the organization but they are ramped up faster. This means improved productivity, quality, customer relations etc. The first step in the process starts even before an employee sets a foot in the door of the new organization. The period of time from when an employee accepts a job to the time they start if they show up is critical.Many organizations ignore this very important step.

The employee can't be left to sit out there in a very tight labor market.If they had been actively seeking work, they may continue to get calls for other interviews. The organization wants to mitigate this risk.

The idea is to "absorb" that person into the workplace, not just introduce them in an onboarding sense. The idea is to get them "bought in" so that they don't second guess their decision and have buyer's remorse and change their mind about their decision to join the organization. This can also be a very important step in the engagement process as well which can drive employee retention. How to use both formal and informal activities to get the person involved so they feel a part of the team will be explored. How to look at other organizations and similar processes that have similar elements to an organization assimilation process will be discussed as well.

Because 30% of employees make the decision to leave their job in the first 30 days we will explore steps to take to head off this type of decision and focus on activities in the first 30 days. The process needs to be intense in the first 30 days because of this phenomenon. It also needs to be very focused and conscious as to what will be done to assimilate in the first 180 days.We will look at the mindset of the new employee during the various time frames in the first 180 days to gain an insight into the type of assimilation activities that must take place.

There will be a focus on developing a formal plan and not just doing things "by the seat of your pants." Structure without being cumbersome is critical. A shotgun approach will fail."Do's" and "Don'ts will be explored as organizations often make unintended errors that hurt assimilation and plant the seed of doubt that drives employee turnover. This is enhanced with leaders not understanding the importance of a formal process.

The importance of the new employee knowing where to go for help, who to ask questions of and pluses of assigning a "buddy" that is a peer to the new employee. Because the social aspect of work is so critical, the person building a positive relationship with their co-workers is paramount. 

This can be critical to also offset other gaps that an organization has in the assimilation process. Lastly, it is important for the new employee to see that they are making progress, being successful and contributing to the success of the organization. A recap of all they have learned, accomplished and have yet to learn is critical. As the person gets toward the end of the initial assimilation, a discussion must be opened about the potential growth they have to look forward to and what their future could look like as a member of the organization is essential. 

Why should you Attend: Employee retention is a cost to your business. Depending on level of the employee, turnover can cost anywhere from 30-300% of an employee's annual salary. The cost to business is enormous and erodes profit margins and can make the difference between being profitable and losing money.

When a business has constant turnover, there is a need to train new employees. When that is taking place, employee productivity is reduced, and the organization is far less efficient.

Quality also suffers because employees do not know their jobs as they are being trained and more errors and defects occur. This can result in liability due to defective products and poor service. Depending on the business such as health care or elderly care it can also result in mistakes that injure or kill patients and clients. Customer service also suffers. 

New employees do not know the product or service the organization and will be a matter of survival for your business in the next decade. When this occurs, customers get angry and may take their business elsewhere. An organizations reputation in the community is hurt due to employee turnover. With the use of websites such as Glassdoor and Facebook, an organizations reputation can be devasted. This makes it fare more difficult to recruit new employees to the organization.

As the baby boomers retire, organization will face a crisis of not being able to find enough people to run their business as the economy grows. If an organization is unable to find enough people to replace those leaving it can hurt the ability to grow and even threaten the survival of the business when it can not provide products or services to customers. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • The critical 1st day on the job
  • Why the first 30 days is so important
  • How long the process should last and why
  • The need for a formal process and important time frames
  • Buddy systems
  • Do's and Don'ts
  • Role of the immediate supervisor and operations in the process


Who Will Benefit:

  • Human Resource Leaders
  • Operations Leaders (including First Line Supervisors and Department Managers)

130631| MentorHealth| HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management Explained Step-by-Step|

Overview:This webinar for HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates will explain:

What a complete HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management program is and how to do one.
How to automate, simplify, document and complete your HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management by an interactive, intuitive process:
To identify and analyze Risks to all Protected Health Information (PHI) - not just Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI)
Manage Identified Risks
Implement your specific, customized Risk Management Plan
Archive your Risk Analysis - Risk Management- Risk Management compliance for ready reference and inspection by OCR
Craft your next HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management from the data entered in the archive - modify and supplement with no need to start from scratch.

Why should you Attend: The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the HIPAA enforcement arm of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced alarming results of the Phase 2 Covered Entity HIPAA Compliance Audits. 94% failed the Risk Management Audit and 87% failed the Risk Analysis Audit! Every audited Covered Entity knew well in advance that it was on the short list to be audited, had completed pre-audit questionnaires and knew the exact questions it would be asked and documentation to be provided (audit protocols).

Attend this session to learn how the Acts of HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management, step-by-step, with the steps demonstrated and explained clearly in plain language. HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management is the basis of your HIPAA Compliance Program. OCR rightly considers the most serious, most widespread HIPAA deficiency for Covered Entities and Business Associates - surpassing all others - is an organization's failure to perform a HIPAA Risk Analysis and implement a Risk Management program to address its Risks.

The HIPAA Rules do not say how to do HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management. OCR's limited 9-page guidance document refers organizations to technical procedures in manuals created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Computer Security Division and geared to "the computer security community". Several Federal "Security Risk Assessment Tools" are available, incomplete, cumbersome and have an explicit disclaimer- use of the tool does not guarantee compliance with federal, state or local laws.

However, Federal Risk Analysis - Risk Management procedures are easy to follow, step by step, when you know the steps. This webinar explains and demonstrates those steps.

Areas Covered in the Session:
Potential Breach Investigation
Breach Risk Assessment
Determination and Documentation
Notifications
Other Breach Notification Rule compliance requirements, including state laws

Who Will Benefit:
Health Care Practice and Business Associate Owners
Compliance Official
Chief Executive Officer
Chief Operating Officer
Chief Compliance Officer
Chief Information Officer
Chief Information Security Officer
Risk Management Director
HIPAA Compliance Official
HIPAA Privacy Officer
HIPAA Security Officer

130630| MentorHealth| Hiring & Firing: A Risky Business|

Training Options Duration: 60 Minutes
Friday, November 16, 2018 | 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview: This lecture will help business owners, and specifically health care business and practice owners learn to look beyond the candidate resume. It is all well and good to select candidates that have the right credentials and experience for a position, but there is much more that must be considered when adding a new employee to your practice.

For example, if those candidates will not mesh well with other members of your practice or if they will not have enough work available to them to keep them happy in their new position - hiring the candidate may be a disaster from day one.

Employers must be careful to consider broader issues when hiring without considering any aspects of the candidate that an employer may be prohibited from considering under the law.

The presenter will go over important factors to consider when hiring a candidate that go beyond credentials and experience while still staying well within the bounds of permissible considerations under the law. For example, does the candidate have a similar practice philosophy as the employer? Are there enough offices, supplies and support staff to support another practitioner?

Attendees will receive an overview of how federal laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, affects every aspect of hiring and firing from job advertisement, to selecting a candidate, to work environment and to ultimate termination of the employment relationship, should that occur. Moreover, attendees will learn about how restrictive covenants can affect not only who they hire but who they fire.

The presenter will also discuss how HIPAA and OSHA affect employees in the medical practice as well as what special background checks can, and should, be done on potential clinical employees before they join the practice.

Finally, should the need to terminate an employee occur, a practice's best defense to any claim of wrongdoing is a good offense. The presenter will go over documentation skills for employee records and best practices for termination procedures.

Why should you Attend: Being a business owner of any type of business is a challeng. Owning and running a business with employees only increases that challenge. Owning and running a health care business with health care employees and non-clinical employees adds another layer to all of these basic business challenges.

Hiring in a health care business not only requires the employer to make sure he or she is abiding by employment laws but also taking into consideration state and local licensing laws and laws regarding permissible structure for medical and health care practices. There are significant federal and state laws and regulations that apply to all businesses and several that apply only to health care businesses.

The fear of starting a business often does not, but certainly should, include all considerations of employing individuals at that business. Both hiring and firing can be a very risky business if not approached with care and consideration. This presentation will delve into some of the lesser known considerations practices should consider when hiring a new employee and provide an overview of how planning for a new employee's separation of the practice before he or she even joins the practice can help prevent many problems should the position not work out.

Areas Covered in the Session:

How to select a candidate to Join a Practice
Prohibited considerations in Hiring and Firing
Compliance with federal Laws in all aspects of Employment
Special Considerations for Health Care Employers
ADA, HIPAA and OSHA
Practical Tips for Employment Termination

Who Will Benefit:

130628| MentorHealth| 3-Hour Virtual Seminar Pain Management Coding-Beginning to End|

Overview: Trigger point injections-use of ultrasound guidance-are payers covering this? Are there limitations on how many trigger points can be performed in a specified period of time?


Chemodenervation for chronic migraine headache and spasmodic torticollis-proper -documentation/billing of medication administered is essential
Genicular Nerve block and destruction-Why do you not code these differently?
Facet/MBB block and destruction-How do you correctly count the levels? What modifiers do you use? How do you code a "periarticular" injection?
Transforaminal Epidural Steroid/Selective nerve root block-bilateral versus multi-level coding
Stellate Ganglion and Lumbar Sympathetic blocks-don't forget to bill for fluoro
Intercostal nerve block versus paravertebral (TAP) block
Which viscosupplementation products are billed per dose versus per milligram
Appropriate reporting of JW modifier
Reporting single dose vials versus multi dose vials
How do you bill those pesky "caines"
Coding Contrast
Coding Steroids
What to look for in a procedure note
Medical Necessity for neuromodulation-Is the patient diagnosis medically necessary for this procedure?
Clear up confusion regarding the appropriate CPT codes to report for SCS revision and replacement-both for pulse generator and the leads themselves
Are the leads billable in a spinal cord stimulator trial?
Intrathecal pump refills, "pump trials", pump implantation, revision and removal
What is the difference between kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty? We will discuss medical necessity for each procedure as well as what is billable in an office setting
Billing Moderate sedation for each procedure

Why should you Attend: Pain management is a specialty focused on minimizing the pain our patients experience daily. Providers offer a host of different procedures that have the potential to alleviate this pain. Once these procedures are completed, it is up to the provider and billing staff to make sure that these procedures are translated into the correct CPT codes.

Correct coding is essential to maximize reimbursement. In this 180-minute session we will discuss multiple procedures and scenarios that are performed in the pain management office, ambulatory surgery center and outpatient hospital. We will discuss pain procedures from the less invasive to more complicated procedures. Proper counting multi-level procedures versus bilateral procedures as well as when to use modifiers will be presented as well.

Medication coding is as important as procedure coding. The calculations can be tricky! We will discuss drug dosages to billed unit calculations. MATH is involved! What should you look for in an office note or procedure not to make sure the medications are captured? Medicare and many other payers require the use of JW modifier effective January 1, 2017. We will discuss when you should and should not use this modifier. Documentation of medications in the record will be discussed as this is key to correct coding. You will be confident of where to look in the record and the HCPCS book for information related to billing units.

We will address common challenges with coding advanced pain management procedures including spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal pumps, kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty.

Areas Covered in the Session:
Coding Nerve Blocks
Coding Facet Injections and Radiofrequency
Coding Spinal Cord Stimulators
Medical Necessity for SCS
Coding Intrathecal Pumps
Intrathecal Medication Coding
Coding Mediations
Coding Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty
Coding Trigger point Injections

Overview: One errant email or text message can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in HIPAA fines and penalties and it doesn't matter who you're communicating with: patients, staff, providers or with insurance carriers. A violation is a violation. And if you think it couldn't happen to you, think again.

Text and email HIPAA violations are not always caused by what you might think. For example, you may think you are safe as long as you don't text patients - you're wrong. Many violations generally occur between providers messaging their staff. You can avoid getting hit with a HIPAA audit and violations with a few simple changes to your current processes.

Protect yourself from HIPAA Violations with one simple Item Added to your Emails
Identify when you can Send PHI via email - or if you ever Should

130625| MentorHealth| The 5 most Dangerous Risks Under New HIPAA Laws|

Overview: This lesson will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves any more.It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2016 and beyond.

There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days as it relates to patients ability to sue you and the Federal governments audit process.

I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices

Why should you Attend:

There are major changes to HIPAA set forth by the Federal government whereby patients can receive remedies for HIPAA violations!
Omnibus has changed the HIPAA landscape for good!
State laws are now more strict increasing liability for patient remedies!
This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on!
Protect your practice or business!
What factors might spurn a HIPAA audit?are you doing these things?

130624| MentorHealth| Incident to Billing Services|

Overview: Incident-to coding for your non-physician practitioners (NPPs) services in conjunction with a supervising physician continues to generate confusion- and 2018 will be no exception. So, it's no surprise that these claims generate higher than average denials, and lead to hefty penalties for physician practices ranging from $163K to $1.5 million - but they don't have to.

Obviously, being paid 100% vs. 85% for your NPPs services is the goal. However, correctly maneuvering through complex incident-to guidelines so you can avoid audits and fines is anything but easy. That's where expert coder, Rhonda Granja, B.S., CMC, CMOM, CMA, CPC, comes in. Rhonda has put together a 60-minute training session to help you cut through the confusion of these difficult coding situations.

Even if you don't see Medicare patients, you should still take note. Private carriers usually end up following suit with CMS at some point.

Why should you Attend: Here are just some of the practical, step-by-step NPP coding tactics you'll receive by completing this concise, plain-English session:

Master incident-to billing and boost your NPPs reimbursement by up to 15%
Pin down what "direct supervision" REALLY means
Get clarification on NPP E/M services (99211)
Boost your pay-up by using 2015 critical care management codes for your NPP services
Comply with your State's guidelines and reduce denials and repayments more accurately
Maximize your reimbursement with NPPs role in transitional care management
And so much more

By completing this NPP training session, you'll receive the practical tools you need to get paid as much as ethically possible for your NPP services (without crossing any lines), and know what changes are necessary to get your NPP documentation into compliance. It also doesn't matter what type of NPP your practice is utilizing either. (i.e. PA, NP, CRNA, CNM, CNS, etc.).

The only way you will receive accurate, compliant, optimal payments is to have a firm understanding of these complex rules & guidelines. If you expect to file even one NPP services claim in 2016 you should absolutely order this training session, don't wait, order today.

Areas Covered in the Session:
Who can bill under "incident to" and when?
Can one physician bill "incident to" on another's?
What about a new physician?
What does direct supervision mean?
Can a nurse bill under "incident to"? We will try to clarify this for you
What services are permissible when the doctor is not on the premise?
Explanation of the Medicare guideline
What about E/M code 99211
Is there a difference concerning private payers?
What services can my nurse bill for?
What can be done under general supervision
Can "Incident To" services be performed in the hospital setting?

130622| MentorHealth| How you are Violating HIPAA Every Day|

Training Options Duration: 90 Minutes
Monday, November 5, 2018 | 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST

Overview: Covered entities and business associates have very specific requirements under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule and Breach Notification Rule. Enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) HIPAA appears to be constantly changing, not based on new regulations, but guidance and newsletters from the OCR, Office of the Inspector General, Office of National Coordinator and CMS.

In addition, OCR adopts many of the publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Without a clear understanding of how to apply the standards in your office, you will most likely be in violation of some aspect of HIPAA every day. Small matters such as not posting your Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) in your waiting room or not listing electronic exchanges on your Notice.

Did you know that the acknowledgement of receipt of NPP must be resigned every 3 years? Authorization forms are another document your office encounters every day. Without the nine required elements the document is not valid and could result in a HIPAA breach (unauthorized disclosure) and open your office up to a law suit.

One of the benefits to knowing the HIPAA rules is that it will allow you to provide better patient care, at times office staff will not relay necessary information to friends and family out of the fear that HIPAA does not allow such disclosures.

HIPAA Security Rule violations can result in major breaches of your patient information. Not having the proper security in place opens your practice/business to massive HIPAA fines because you did not protect patient privacy. We will go over reasonable and appropriate security measures for the small, medium and large size practice and company.

Not performed your yearly risk analysis. The average fine to a practice is $1000.00 per day going back six years. Not only is your office required to have a yearly risk assessment, you must develop and implement a risk management plan based on the risk analysis.

During this webinar we will go over 100 different ways your practice/business is violating HIPAA every day. Make sure you don't miss a minute.

Why should you Attend: HIPAA is complex and misunderstood. We'll review the latest guidelines to ensure your practice or business is up to date on the requirements to avoid fines, breaches, and security incidents. The HIPAA Privacy and Security and Breach Notification rule contains thousands of pages of rules and regulations your office must comply with on a daily basis or face fines, lawsuits and loss of trust from your patients.

The legal regulations are only a small part of the guidance your office must follow, all Health and Human Services agencies are involved in HIPAA guidance In addition, the Office for Civil Rights adopts many of NIST publications which each can be hundreds of pages. Our webinar will simplify your requirements by showing you the most common HIPAA violations. This information is based on 8 years of working with small to large practices and business associates.

Areas Covered in the Session: Violations of:

Notice of Privacy Requirements
Communicating with Family and Friends
Can you Call Patients by Name
What Information can be Listed on your Sign in Sheet
Reasonable and Appropriate Security of your Network

Who Will Benefit:
Physicians
Owners of Medical Practices
Office Managers
Staff
Home Health Care Workers
Dentists
Business Associates

Protecting patient privacy is more important today than ever as cybercriminals want access to patient information. Michael will help your office implement the reasonable and appropriate security standards that are required by HIPAA and necessary to protect your patient records from being stolen or held for ransom.

130616| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Cheshire - September 2019|

AACP Foundation Acupuncture Course

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer participants a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow them to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting.

The course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture - grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific "placebo" effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:

  • have HCPC physiotherapy registration
  • have CSP membership
  • be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts
  • give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant).
  • be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration. (see AACP website for safety guidelines)
  • attend all 6 days of the course
