online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: Learn specific examples how to use modifiers to report services and procedures accurately and effectively. With the coming implementation of ICD-10, proper documentation will be more important than ever.This sixty-minute Webinar will provide a wealth of information concerning documentation for a wide variety of procedures and environments.

In addition to the code for the specific procedure or service provided to the patient, there might be times when you will have to apply a modifier. Modifiers are two-character codes that add clarification and additional details to the procedure code's original description, as listed in the main portion of the CPT book. At times, the modifier provides necessary explanation to the third-party payer that directly relates to the reimbursement that the facility or physician will receive.

Why should you attend: In this webinar you will learn how to code with modifiers and all modifier guidelines. Modifiers create clear, concise communications between the provider and payer, and are essential to the coding process. This webinar uses real-life modifier scenarios and medical records to guide correct CPT® and HCPCS modifier usage. This webinar will provide guidance on how and when to use modifiers in order to avoid costly payment delays and denials.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Distinguish between CPT modifiers and HCPCS modifiers

This Webinar will help you determine when and if a modifier is required

Apply the guidelines to determine the best, most appropriate modifier

HIPAA Enforcement and Portable Devices Today
5/13/2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: It seems everyone is moving to a new smart phone and wants to use it in all the incredible ways it can be used, including for health care purposes. New health care apps are being released all the time, and even good old e-mail is being used more and more to communicate, by providers and patients alike.

In order to integrate the use of mobile technology into patient communications, it is essential to perform the proper steps in an information security compliance process to evaluate and address the risks of using the technology. This session will describe the information security compliance process, how it works, and how it can help you decide how to integrate mobile technology into your organization in a compliant way. The process, including the use of information security risk analysis, will be explained, and the policies needed to support the process will be described.

But the process must also include consideration of various patient access requirements in the HIPAA Privacy Rule. There are new requirements to provide patients electronic access of electronically held PHI which raise new questions of how that access will be provided and how the information will be protected during and after access. And there has long been a HIPAA requirement for covered entities to do their best to meet the requests of their patients for particular modes of communication, and using a mobile device is no exception.

The stakes are high – any improper exposure of PHI may result in an official breach that must be reported to the individual and to the US Department of Health and Human Services, at great cost and with the potential to bring fines and other enforcement actions if a violation of rules is involved. Likewise, complaints by a patient if they are not afforded the access they desire can bring about HHS inquiries and enforcement actions, so it is essential to find the right balance of access and control.

HHS compliance audit activity and enforcement penalties are both increased, especially in instances of willful neglect of compliance, if, for instance, your organization hasn't adopted the complete suite of policies and procedures needed for compliance, or hasn’t adequately considered the impact of mobile devices on your compliance. Given that mobile devices are a leading source of breaches of PHI, it is essential to consider these devices and how their use affects the privacy and security of PHI; not doing so is inviting enforcement action by HHS.

The session will discuss the requirements, the risks, and the issues of the increasing use of mobile devices for patient communications and provide a road map for how to use them safely and effectively, to increase the quality of health care and patient satisfaction.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Find out the ways that patients want to use their mobile technology to communicate with providers, and the ways providers want to use their mobile technology to enable better patient care.

Learn what are the risks of using mobile technology, what can go wrong, and what can result when it does.

Find out about HIPAA requirements for access and patient preferences, as well as the requirements to protect PHI.

Learn how to use an information security management process to evaluate risks and make decisions about how best to protect PHI and meet patient needs and desires.

Find out what policies and procedures you should have in place for dealing with mobile devices and any new technology.

Learn about the training and education that must take place to ensure your staff uses mobile devices properly and does not risk exposure of PHI.

Find out the steps that must be followed in the event of a breach of PHI.

Learn about how the HIPAA audit and enforcement activities are now being increased and what you need to do to survive a HIPAA audit.

Overview: The webinar focuses on the patient safety issues in patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA undergoing surgery. We'll help you understand the risk factors for OSA and use appropriate screening tools can help identify undiagnosed cases.

Why should you attend:

Are you aware of which patients have or might have OSA?

Are your patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA at risk of dying?

Significant Changes Required by the Final Omnibus Rules
5/13/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: The focus of this presentation is to help covered entities and business associates understand what key changes they should have in place now, based upon the final omnibus rules. In this session, you will learn about significant changes to the HIPAA privacy and breach notification rules and some minor changes to the security rule.

Discussions will also include information from the comments to the rule which provided informative guidance to the changes, as well as clarifications for existing rules. Tips to comply with these changes will be reviewed.

Why should you Attend:Determining what changes organizations need to put in place to be in compliance with the final omnibus rules can be frustrating and take a lot of time. Many organizations are still struggling to figure out what they need to do to be in compliance with the original HIPAA rules. The compliance date of the final omnibus rules has come and gone (9/23/13; with a transition compliance date for previously compliant business associate agreements of 9/22/14). If your organization has not reviewed and updated its HIPAA compliance program, it is at risk of penalties, such as fines and corrective action plans. The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is increasingly penalizing organizations for they investigate incidents reported by patients and employees.

In addition, the OCR will likely resume its random audit program, which could also result in penalties. One common theme for OCR penalties provided is not having appropriately documented and implemented policies and procedures. Attend this webinar to learn what significant changes you should put in place to avoid being penalized. Important note for business associates: the final omnibus rules extended liability to you and requires you to comply with most of the HIPAA rules. Essentially, the OCR may audit, investigate, and provide you with penalties. In other words, your organizations are significantly impacted by the final omnibus rules.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Applicability

Breach notification rule

Privacy rule

Security rule

Penalties

Who Will Benefit:

Compliance Officers and their employees

Risk Managers and their employees
