Effective Portfolio Management Webinar By EITAGlobal http://entrepreneurship.org/en/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/April/Effective-Portfolio-Management--Webinar-By-EITAGlobal.aspx What is portfolio management?

Portfolio Management is the art and science of making decisions about investment mix and policy, matching investments to objectives, asset allocation for individuals and institutions, and balancing risk against performance. Portfolio management is all about strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in the choice and management of projects. The end objective is to maximize return on investment (qualitative and quantitative) at a given level of risk. An IT Project Portfolio is a collection of IT projects, both proposed and in progress which include some deployed systems (already in production) within your organization. Effective Portfolio Management addresses the decision process, in order to show how it is possible to minimize the risks and how to focus on the right project that addresses the right priorities of the organization Your IT portfolio should be a diversified mix of high risk/high reward and low risk/low reward elements. Just like a personal investment portfolio, you should look at it in terms of return on investment and addressing the right objectives.

ECM Integration with Microsoft PowerShell Webinar By EITAGlobal http://entrepreneurship.org/en/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/April/ECM-Integration-with-Microsoft-PowerShell--Webinar-By-EITAGlobal.aspx When native or reasonably inexpensive integrations between these solutions and the ECM repositories where the content should reside do not exist, then there are only a few options available:

Do nothing and leave the content unmanaged, unknown, and at risk.

Create bespoke integration solutions writing whatever modules, functions or code is required to accomplish the required integration. This option is almost always the most expensive, usually exceeding any existing 3rd party solution. It means long-term development, support, maintenance, and training. While this approach can lead to a superior solution, it is one that will almost always take longer than expected and be over budget.

Work locally and force the users to change the way they work, manually storing and retrieving the content from the ECM system using other tools like, for instance, WebDav or Windows Explorer. For some problems, this is the ideal solution when there are only a few users requiring the integration. However there is on-going training required to assure the integration over the long-term and there is a real risk that the ECM system may not get used 100% of the time.

Work locally and use scheduled tasks to synchronize content between local storage and ECM solutions. This loose integration approach requires almost zero training, limited development and long-term support and is easily maintained over time. The difficulty is in creating the synchronization solution; it too can often turn into a full-blown be-spoke application.

6Hour Virtual Seminar on Creating Hybrid Public Private Cloud Applications With NET and Windows http://entrepreneurship.org/en/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/April/6Hour-Virtual-Seminar-on-Creating-Hybrid-Public--Private-Cloud-Applications-With-NET-and-Windows.aspx Why should you attend: Public-cloud solutions have demonstrated an ability to cost effectively provide scalable solutions to users of an application without the need for extensive capital investment in hardware. Unfortunately it is often the case that code and data that is written for many business applications is not easily adaptable to moving to the cloud, and it may be that case that it is not possible due to compliance issues or actual laws preventing sensitive data from being stored outside of the corporate firewall. This unfortunately leaves existing service and data assets that would be beneficial to cloud applications left behind the corporate firewall where they are difficult, if not normally possible, to participate in cloud based services. This webinar will demonstrate how you can use the Windows Azure Service Bus, and specifically Service Bus Relay services, to easily and securely integrate data and services behind the corporate firewall to public cloud and mobile applications.

When and How to Build Private and Hybrid Clouds Webinar By EITAGlobal http://entrepreneurship.org/en/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/April/When-and-How-to-Build-Private-and-Hybrid-Clouds--Webinar-By-EITAGlobal.aspx Why Should you Attend: Private cloud is a big ticket item that is on the radar for most Fortune 2000 companies. Its premises are appealing - get the best of both worlds, the flexibility of a public cloud and the control over your own infrastructure. However, Forrester found that most enterprises haven’t matured their cloud management practices to the point where they could fully exploit the private cloud.

There are also significant risk factors: often the implementation costs are under estimated (we already have the hardware, right?) as well as the management complexity of a private cloud, and the in-house staff often does not have the skills to successfully operate the cloud.

Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not a requirement because engineers and other non-biologists also need this training if they are involved with any aspect of water systems. The instructor will provide the necessary background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, maintenance, troubleshooting, and excursion investigations of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system control consists of a set of rules that often don't work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls, and leaves the user without a clue as to what went wrong or how to effectively fix it so it doesn't recur.

HIPAA Issues in Mental and Behavioral Health Webinar By MentorHealth http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/HIPAA-Issues-in-Mental-and-Behavioral-Health---Webinar-By-MentorHealth.aspx Overview: Without the proper legal awareness needed to stay in compliance, you may face grave legal and financial consequences. This webinar will help alleviate confusion by providing an overview of HIPAA and the Security and Privacy Rules and the changes that the HITECH Act caused, especially regarding civil and criminal penalties for violating HIPAA. Learn how and when HIPAA preempts (does away with) state law and the exceptions to preemption, and what other laws preempt HIPAA, such as 42 Code of Federal Regulations Part II's added protection for substance abuse treatment information.

Gain insight on the Security Rule issues for mental and behavioral health practitioners in terms of the five categories of security requirements: general provisions, administrative safeguards, physical safeguards, technical safeguards, and documentation requirements. Understand the privacy rights of clients under HIPAA, specifically the individual's right of access to protected health information ("PHI"), the individual's right to an accounting of uses and disclosures of PHI, the individual's right to notice of information practices, the individual's right to request restriction of uses and disclosures of PHI, and the individual's right to request correction/amendment of PHI.

The information presented is valuable legal and practical information on how to comply with the laws and regulations that haunt your daily duties. Social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, addiction professionals, case managers, health care administrators, privacy officers, security officers, CFO's and risk managers will acquire useful knowledge and solutions to your compliance nightmares and fears of ethics violations, litigation, depositions, and court room testimony. This program will boost your confidence in all of these areas and help you continue to provide "top shelf" care, treatment and advice to your clients. Focus your energies where they count the most and gain the expertise you need to meet the requirements of HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and Omnibus Rule change. Become and remain confident that your Mental and Behavioral health care practice is on the right track.

Why should you attend: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") and its implementing Department of Health and Human Services ("DHHS") regulations, primarily the Security Rule and the Privacy Rule, however, greatly complicate many important issues, such as whether a clinician could release a second opinion by another clinician to the client under the client's HIPAA right of access or whether HIPAA's narrow exception to disclosure to the client if the disclosure would be reasonably likely to result in death or serious injury would prohibit the disclosure if it would impair the therapeutic relationship.

Much of this type of confusion comes from HIPAA's preemption standard. HIPAA preempts (does away with) other state or federal law that is inconsistent with HIPAA unless, among other grounds, the state or federal law provides more privacy protection. One of the problems, for example, is figuring out whether a state law saying that a psychologist may not release a third-party document to the patient provides more or less privacy protection.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Group therapy

Disclosure to law enforcement and others when the client presents a danger to him or herself or others including interaction with the Tarasoff duty to warn

Denying client chart access

What to do if your client's records contain information about other family members

Whether you can discuss a client's case with another clinician without a signed consent

When you must disclose psychotherapy notes

May you release copyright protected raw test data?

Key Factors to Write HIPAA Compliance Policies http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Key-Factors-to-Write-HIPAA-Compliance-Policies.aspx Overview: The webinar will explain the process for covered entities and business associates to use to draft, adopt, and implement HIPAA compliance policies. The webinar will begin with a discussion of how to decide, using a gap analysis and a risk analysis, what policies the organization needs, including required, addressable, and other policies. Then, the webinar will cover writing a policy. Writing a policy is easier than one may think. It is a three-step process: researching, drafting, and revising.

This webinar will teach you to ask questions, solicit help, collect samples, keep the principles of substance, organization, coherence, style, and correctness in mind while you are drafting, send your draft out for review, incorporate comments, implement the policy, and repeat as necessary. The prospect of developing and writing perhaps as many as 70 policies to attain HIPAA compliance may still seem daunting, but this webinar will teach you how to make a checklist, take it step by step, and enlist the help of others when you need it.

Why should you attend: The majority of the DHHS civil money penalties and settlements in lieu thereof involve, sometimes with other violations, failure to perform a written risk analysis, failure to develop required policies, and failure to conduct adequate HIPAA training. These penalties usually are in the seven-figure range.

Failure to conduct a written risk analysis, adopt required policies, or conduct required training qualifies as "willful neglect," which carries the highest civil money penalty ("CMP") and which penalty cannot be waived by DHHS as can violations due to a reasonable cause. DHHS entered into a settlement with Massachusetts General Hospital for $1 million for a breach involving leaving paper PHI records on a subway. The sanction was because Massachusetts General had not trained its workforce on proper security for PHI taken offsite and did not have a work-at-home policy. Significantly, HIPAA does not even mention working at home, much less specifically require such a policy.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Learn which policies are required and which are addressable

Learn about other policies that your organization may need that are not mentioned in the HIPAA regulations but that organizations have nonetheless been fined for not having

The CMS Hospital Discharge Planning Standards and Discharge Planning Worksheet Webinar By MentorHea http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/The-CMS-Hospital-Discharge-Planning-Standards-and-Discharge-Planning-Worksheet---Webinar-By-MentorHea.aspx Overview: This program will discuss the CMS worksheet on discharge planning. The discharge planning worksheet states that the necessary medical record information, such as a discharge summary, should be dictated and in the hands of the primary care physician or other physician before the first visit. Is your hospital familiar with the interpretive guidelines and the worksheet information? Come learn what other important things CMS has in their revised worksheet on preventing hospital readmissions!! CMS has recently issued their third revisions to the worksheets.

Every hospital that accepts Medicare and Medicaid must be in compliance with the CMS discharge planning guidelines. These standards must be followed for all patients and not just Medicare or Medicaid. CMS requires a number of discharge planning policies and procedures so come learn which ones are required and why. CMS is placing a high priority on improving patient safety and the quality of care. This is consistent with their initiative, the Partnership for Patients: Better Care, Lower Costs, which is aimed to keep patients from getting injured or harmed while in the hospital setting. The goal is to reduce hospitals acquired conditions by 20%. CMS feels that hospitals in full compliance with the hospital CoPs will be in a better position to reduce healthcare acquired conditions.

Ethical Issues in Human Subjects Research Webinar By MentorHealth http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Ethical-Issues-in-Human-Subjects-Research---Webinar-By-MentorHealth.aspx Overview: This webinar is a compilation of information in areas that generate the most questions for human subject's researchers when conducting research internationally. Discussed in this webinar will be: 45 CFR 46.111 (a)(2) which states, "In evaluating risks and benefits, the IRB should consider only those risks and benefits that may result from the research (as distinguished from risks and benefits of therapies subjects would receive even if not participating in the research)." So what is risk assessment and how does that affect you? The Criteria for Approval found in both the FDA and HHS regulations stipulates what will be looked at during the approval process yet many do not know how, under which conditions, their study is reviewed and therefore do not anticipate possible questions in their study design.

The Federalwide Assurance is required for NIH funded studies. It is a written assurance filed with the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) that outlines under which terms a study will be reviewed, approved, and conducted. Even if the study is not NIH funded the principles in the Federalwide Assurance apply. Because of this assurance, additional criteria get applied to studies. When does that happen? Why? Can it be avoided? These questions and more will be answered by learning the information presented in this webinar.

Why should you attend: All researchers want their studies be reviewed and approved quickly. Most investigators do not think about regulatory criteria when designing a study. Complicating matters is the current trend to conduct research in private physician offices and other community venues. Although this makes research more accessible to potential participants, it also invokes another set of regulations and requirements.

The consent document and process are always areas that generate questions. What can and cannot be used? Why? What is allowable? Risks, benefits and how those are viewed and accessed also confound and befuddle individuals working in this field. Knowing what to consider and what the possible stumbling blocks could be, make getting an approval to conduct human subject's research easier. Attendance at this webinar will do just that. It will not only give you a working knowledge of the areas that create the most confusion, it will also give you an understanding that will help you avoid or work through these areas faster and be of assistance to those around you.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Assurances: What are these? What do they stipulate? How they affect you as a researcher

Criteria for review. What to think about and consider when developing or conducting your study

Consent and assent. What is required? What choices do you have?

Community research. What is involved when you ask a private physician to conduct your study or to recruit from his/her clinic?

Risk/Benefit Assessment. What is it? Who makes the determination? What does that determination mean with regards to additional requirements? What is allowable?

Who Will Benefit:

Principal Investigators / Sub-investigators

Clinical Research Scientists (PKs, Biostatisticians,)

Safety Nurses

Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) and Coordinators (CRCs)

Recruiting Staff

QA / QC auditors and Staff

Clinical Research Data Managers

Human Research Protection Professionals

Risk Analysis to Meet HIPAA HITECH and Meaningful Use Webinar By MentorHealth http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Risk-Analysis-to-Meet-HIPAA-HITECH-and-Meaningful-Use---Webinar-By-MentorHealth.aspx Overview: This presentation will guide the user on the principles of Risk Analysis and Risk Management to prioritize risks. It will rely heavily on the NIST 800-30 as revised and finalized on 09/18/2012.

The process of risk analysis starts with the simple principle that you must know you have an asset in order to protect it. This presentation will provide information about how to determine where the risks to the organization exist and point organizations to where to look for this information. Once information asset locations have been identified, then the risk and safeguards to that information can be explored.

Risk assessments are a key part of effective risk management and facilitate decision making at all three tiers in the risk management hierarchy including the organization level, network level, and information system level.

Risk Management is a process that provides for the identification, prioritization and management of technical and non-technical risk to the confidentiality, integrity or availability of information. Risks cannot be eliminated; they must be managed appropriately. A key step in security management is risk analysis; that is, identifying threats and vulnerabilities against security controls and measures. A risk analysis allows an organization to estimate potential loss. It also can help determine the most appropriate and cost-effective security measures to implement. After the risk analysis is performed, organizations should implement the safeguards and controls needed to keep risks at an acceptable level as determined by executive management or owner.

Why should you attend: The HIPAA security rule requires every covered entity (CE) to conduct a risk analysis to determine security risks and implement measures "to sufficiently reduce those risks and vulnerabilities to a reasonable and appropriate level." In addition to attest for Meaningful Use and organization must complete a HIPAA Risk Analysis and implement a Risk Management Program. This would include conducting a risk analysis at the organizational, network and application levels.

HITECH EMR Meaningful Use Post-Pay Audits have included a request that organizations provide proof that a risk analysis was performed prior to the end of the reporting period. In addition, they will ask for a risk mitigation plan to address deficiencies and they may request completion dates. It is not the Vendors Responsibility to conduct an application risk analysis; it is the covered entities responsibility. The Meaningful Use guidance has also shown that your risk analysis cannot be limited to just the application.

This session will explore the processes and methods that can assist organizations prioritize IT security projects by addressing the highest risks to the organization. Covered entities must make security decisions on what is appropriate for their specific environment and risk analysis is the tool to ensure that risk mitigation activities are reasonable for a specific environment.

This presentation reviews the regulatory requirements for security risk analysis and management, provides an overview of the types of risk analysis that can be performed, and offers a practical approach on how to comply with these requirements.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Locate the data, and then conduct a risk analysis

Define Reasonable By Using NIST and CMS Guidance as a Guide

Risk Analysis Steps

Identify the scope of the specific analysis

Gather Data

Identify and document potential threats and vulnerabilities

Assess and document current security measures

The Politics And Ethics Of Health Care Reform Webinar By MentorHealth http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/The-Politics-And-Ethics-Of-Health-Care-Reform---Webinar-By-MentorHealth.aspx Overview: All major health policy initiatives that seek to redraw lines and reshape the system are going to be controversial; that is a given. However, recent efforts to address cost, coverage, and efficiency issues in the system have produced a firestorm of debate, political posturing, and questionable behavior. There have been threats, dire predictions of disaster, overblown expectations, dysfunctional web sites, quirky Supreme Court decisions, and other events that have turned the normally dry field of health policy into high drama.

Patients are turning to health care professionals to find out what is really going on, and many of those professionals are not always able to separate the wheat from the chaff. Among the key issues are:

Patient fears that Medicare will somehow be compromised or even eliminated

Massive variations among states regarding expansion of the Medicaid program

Insurer practices that appear to be seeking to continue the practice of discrimination against the sick - practices that in some cases have the support of state governors, who are refusing to enforce anti-discrimination provisions of the ACA

Concerns about the privacy of personal patient medical information, which has always been at risk, but is widely seen as being more vulnerable as system- and even community-wide health care data bases are developed and electronic medical records and e-prescribing become the order of the day

Issues of access to care, as fewer and fewer physicians accept Medicaid patients, physicians treating Medicare patients move to "concierge" practices, and physicians move from individual or small-group practices to large medical groups

The growing problem of overprescribing and misuse of opioids and other addictive drugs - will e-prescribing make it worse?

The battle for the "hearts and minds" of the public, which has involved both scare tactics and intentional misinformation

None of this is new; the battle 50 years ago over the creation of Medicare and Medicaid was one of the nastiest political fights in American history. When the war was finally over, the most powerful lobby in Washington, DC, had lost much of its clout, and a new era of government involvement in care of the aging had been ushered in. Could the current debate have similar far-reaching consequences?

This webinar will examine what has happened historically with tough health policy fights and their results, and will apply some of those lessons to the current situation. It will also provide objective information about some of the major contemporary battles, what the truths and falsehoods are, and what may happen with regard to them. It will also identify political and ethics issues that are part and parcel of the changing scene that have been largely overlooked - and that could play a major role in determining the success or failure of health care reform. These include ACA's failure to provide for the poorest of the poor, the gray area of coverage for undocumented immigrants, the coming fight over what constitutes optimal care for a given condition, changes in payment structure that will force providers to think in entirely new ways, and the failure of the ACA (or any other initiative, for that matter) to ensure that health care will be both accessible and affordable going forward.

Why should you attend: There has been enough inaccurate information spread about the major reform initiatives of the day - the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the HITECH Act, and state coverage innovations - to make the Brothers Grimm appear to have been telling the absolute truth. That has been one major dilemma in the debate over sweeping changes in the health care system that is being attempted by powers both public and private. But there have been other problems as well, and among them has been a passionate, but at the same time, dispiriting political fight over government's role in health care and the responsibility of the individual. Insurers have tried to get around the new rules; state governors have refused to participate in or enforce certain provisions of the Affordable Care Act; adoption of new approaches by providers, even when virtually mandated, has been spotty. The result is a landscape littered with uncertainty and inconsistency that has left the average health care professional confused and, in many cases, angry.

On top of those stresses have been thorny ethics problems that have dogged reform efforts from the beginning. A provision in the ACA that would have paid physicians $50 for discussing end-of-life issues with Medicare patients (which most physicians do, anyway) was condemned as an attempt to shorten the lives of those patients. A commission charged with finding ways to reduce inflation in the Medicare program was condemned as a "death panel." A $2 billion fund to improve public and preventive health activities was diverted by Congress to non-health care purposes.

Where does the truth lie? How can the politics of health get this ugly? What are the real political and ethical quandaries posed by health care reform, and how might they be addressed? Health care professionals need to know, not only in order to be in compliance with new laws and regulations, but also because they should be involved in addressing these thorny issues.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Previous major battles over health care system reform initiatives - what happened and why

The politics of reform - high stakes, key players

Coding and Documenting CPT and HCPC Modifiers Accurately and Compliantly http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Coding-and-Documenting-CPT-and-HCPC-Modifiers-Accurately-and-Compliantly.aspx 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

Append multiple modifiers in the proper sequence

Identify circumstances that require a supplemental report

Avoiding Duplicate Denials When Billing with Modifier 76

Proper Billing of the Same Surgical Procedure Code Multiple Times on the Same Day

Clarification on the Use of Modifier 22

Modifier 32 Mandated Services (Help Prevent a Redetermination Request)

HIPAA Enforcement and Portable Devices Today http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/HIPAA-Enforcement-and-Portable-Devices-Today.aspx 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.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and the Perioperative Period Webinar By MentorHealth http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Obstructive-Sleep-Apnea-and-the-Perioperative-Period---Webinar-By-MentorHealth.aspx 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.

Determining which patients and procedures can be safely managed in ambulatory settings vs. inpatient settings will be discussed. Anesthesia and intra-operative considerations will also be discussed. But most important will be the discussion on monitoring of OSA patients in the postoperative period. Monitoring OSA patients with pulse oximetry alone is insufficient and may give a false sense of security.

We use many case examples to illustrate the problems encountered in patients with OSA, including opioid-related events, hazards of supplemental oxygen, and others.

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?

Have you already had adverse events in patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA?

Are you monitoring your at-risk patients correctly?

Does your staff fully understand the risks involved in patients with OSA?

Areas Covered in the Session:

Prevalence of OSA

Risk factors for OSA

Screening for OSA

Risks of OSA in the Perioperative Period

Inpatient vs. Ambulatory Surgery

Pre-operative Considerations

Operative Considerations

Anesthesia

Post-operative Management

Significant Changes Required by the Final Omnibus Rules http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Significant-Changes-Required-by-the-Final-Omnibus-Rules.aspx 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

Business associates

Privacy rule

Security rule

Penalties

Negligent Credentialing Strategies to Protect Your Health Care Entity http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Negligent-Credentialing-Strategies-to-Protect-Your-Health-Care-Entity.aspx Overview: Hospitals, as corporate entities, have the ultimate responsibility for the quality of medical care provided in its facilities. This statement can be misleading, however, if one concludes that the hospital is liable for all acts of negligence or malpractice by a physician who practices at the hospital. In truth, the hospital must take reasonable steps:

To select a competent medical staff

To ensure that the individual physician on it staff performs only procedures for which he or she is qualified

To implement certain quality control measures to verify that only qualified practitioners remain on the staff and that quality care is provided in the institution

We will review the historical relationship between the physician and the hospital and, to see this relationship in the proper context, the roles each plays under the "corporate responsibility doctrine." We will also review the development of negligent credentialing and examine what actions should be taken to preclude liability for failure to properly credential practitioners.

Why should you attend: In a medical malpractice action, the plaintiff is looking for the defendant with deepest pocket for recovery. There is little question that hospitals have the deepest pocket. You should attend this program to learn how negligent credentialing develops and learn strategies to defend against it.

Areas Covered in the Session:

A brief history of peer review in hospitals

How the doctrine of corporate responsibility developed

Responsibility of the hospital for monitoring the care provided by physicians

What negligent credentialing is and how it developed

A brief review of state lawsuits involving negligent credentialing

Strategies that should be taken to preclude liability

Who Will Benefit:

Physicians who serve on peer review committees

What is a Serious Adverse Events and how do I handle these Webinar By MentorHealth http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/What-is-a-Serious-Adverse-Events-and-how-do-I-handle-these---Webinar-By-MentorHealth.aspx Overview: When conducting clinical trials it is important to understand and be able to identify serious adverse events (SAE). These are events that are serious, likely related to the study drug, device, treatment or procedure, and increase risks to participants or others.

Serious adverse events are defined by the FDA as "Any adverse experience that places the patient, in the view of the initial reporter, at immediate risk of death from the adverse experience as it occurred, i.e., it does not include an adverse drug experience that, had it occurred in a more severe form, might have caused death." Although this definition seems clear, there are words within the definition itself that have to be understood in order to ensure compliance. Who is the initial reporter? What is an adverse experience? Is an adverse experience different or the same as an adverse drug experience? How do you know if a more severe form as occurred? Is death the SAE or is the cause of death the SAE?

This webinar will help sort out all these issues and get you to a better understanding of what needs to be reported to who.

Why should you attend: Regulations and guidance can be overwhelming and seem conflicting when it comes to handling serious adverse events, it is important to know when and what needs to be submitted, reviewed, and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) and what can be handled by the investigator as non-reporting of events that are considered reportable can lead to issues related to non-compliance.

Business Associate Agreements Why the Pushback from Business Associates http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Business-Associate-Agreements-Why-the-Pushback-from-Business-Associates.aspx Overview: We will take a look at the recent Omnibus Final Rule outlining that all CE's are required to present their BA's with new BAA's, before September 23, 2014. You will also learn why some of the attitudes have recently surfaced from the BA's, why they are resisting some of these agreements, what the BAA's are now required to do according to the same Omnibus Final Rule, and more.

We will discuss responsibility, liability, indemnification, injunctive relief, and other topics that are causing, or may be causing, contention. In the past, so many BA's simply sign these agreements in an effort to continue to do business with each CE. And now, they want to negotiate terms? Why are they making this so complicated? After all, the CE's business that they provide to the BA is more important than an agreement, right? Find out more….

Why should you attend: The business associates (BA's) that a covered entity (CE) uses to perform a covered function for them must now assume responsibility and liability for their actions when it comes to the handling of protected health information (PHI). Learn what these responsibilities are, the reasons for some potential pushback from them regarding liability, providing proof of HIPAA training, etc. It used to be that a majority of BAA's would simply sign the agreements presented to them, but now they are requesting more and more changes to our agreements. In this webinar, you will learn some of the reasons for this new attitude.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Omnibus Final Rule requirements regarding BAA's

The BAA-what it was, what it is now, and what it might be in the future

The CE's Obligations

The BA's Obligations

Liability

Indemnification

Pushback

Who Will Benefit:

Compliance Director

Comparing AgileScrum and CMMI How They Can Work Together http://entrepreneurship.org/en/sitecore/content/Sites/Entrepreneurship_org/Home/Events/Listings/Entrepreneurship/2014/May/Comparing-AgileScrum-and-CMMI-How-They-Can-Work-Together.aspx Scrum is a pre-defined development lifecycle based on Agile principles. Agile methodologies promote a project-management process that encourages frequent inspection and adaptation, and a leadership philosophy using teamwork, self-organization and accountability. CMMI is a collection of practices that organizations (software, hardware and IT) can adopt to improve their performance. The CMMI comes with two main views (representations), Staged and Continuous. Staged shows all of the Process Areas (groups of related practices) in the form of a road map, allowing organizations to focus on basic improvements before attempting advanced topics. The Continuous representation has the same content but allows for any topic (Process Area) to be selected à la carte.
