In March, the Orlando PAHCOM Chapter’s lunch and learn meeting will focus on “ICD-10. Is Your Practice Ready? Are You? Part 1 – Six Months and Counting”. October 1st 2014 is the ICD-10 go live date and the Orlando Chapter Board members want to make sure that members and regular attendees are prepared for this industry changing event. If someone is not prepared, then we want to be a resource to help them prepare. We will discuss steps that should be taken from a management perspective to prepare managers, staff, AND physicians. In February the Orlando PAHCOM Chapter hosted two events. The first was an intimate presentation at the Orange County Bar Association on Legal and Regulatory Issues affecting Healthcare Providers and Medical Practices. Legal Monday was held on February 10th 2014. Our featured speakers were trial attorney, Chris Payer of the Payer Law Group and Prithi Daswani CPA PL. Mr. Payer shared his legal insight as well as many enthralling yet cautioning anecdotes with the group. Ms. Daswani, a vibrant speaker, presented and informative piece which delved into accounting issues for medical practices and innovative options which she coined “sexy accounting” for addressing those issues. The second event the Orlando PAHCOM Chapter hosted was the monthly lunch and learn meeting on February 20th 2014. The meeting was held at Maitland’s newest restaurant Black Fin. The meeting featured two educational presentations. The first presentation “Trust Then Verify: Preventing Employee Theft” was delivered by Karen Andersen, , RN, BSN, CRM, LHRM, CPHRM a Licensed Healthcare Risk Management and Insurance Specialist; Bob Adamson, AAI, CIC, CPIA, LUTCF. The managers in attendance were shocked at the employee theft statistics shared during the presentation but also relieved as they were provided with resources to mitigate this in their practices. The second presentation “Ten Ways to Reduce Overhead Costs” was delivered by Yesenia Mosher, Secretary of the Orlando Chapter. Ms. Mosher discussed ten pragmatic ways for practice managers to reduce overhead costs. She emphasized that reducing costs should be a priority for all managers on an ongoing basis. In January 16th 2014, the Orlando PAHCOM Chapter hosted an Expert Panel of local healthcare industry professionals to provide a lively Q&A session. “What Are Your Offices Resolutions for 2014? The educational presentation was delivered by Kathy Normandy, MBA and Vice-President of the Orlando Chapter. Ms. Normandy gave a dynamic presentation on resolutions for healthcare management professionals. The points emphasized by Ms. Normandy can and should be applied by managers in more than just their professional roles.
