02/24/2020 - Lehigh Valley Chapter News
The Lehigh Valley chapter officers have been hard at work bringing presenters to our chapter meetings that support the 9 domains of the CMM (Certified Medical Manager) credential. The CMM 9 domains are the guidelines or roadmap for medical managers in managing their practice. The chapter started off the year receiving updates on HR (Human Resources), George Hlavac, Esq. , presented HR changes that will drive process and staff policies for 2020. Our next chapter meeting our guest speaker, Jennifer Swinnich, PA Medical Society, brought us Medicare changes and regulations; these updates cross multiple domains, touching on Revenue Cycle Management, Clinical Management Reporting, and Technology Data Management. Jennifer also provided updates on commercial payer changes, members will find this information most beneficial when monitoring and auditing your patient revenue. Next on the agenda for our chapter is a review of Finance, Bill Bloss, CPA will be walking us through financial statements, practice accounting, and a financial overview which is important to all of us as we manage our practice and we track the flow of money into and out of the practice. The natural progression is to review Compliance, Jennifer Coluciello, Delco Chapter member, Compliance Officer of Kidney Care Specialists, will be presenting compliance challenges and solutions that we may face in our offices. Compliance crosses all 9 domains; this will be a meeting you don’t want to miss. We are looking forward to the 2nd Annual NE Regional PAHCOM Symposium, if you were not able to attend in 2019, look for upcoming details and dates for this exciting event coming in the fall of 2020. Respectfully, Suzette Benedick, MBA, CMM 2020 - Lehigh Valley PAHCOM Chapter Secretary

The chapter officer lineup includes: • President: Steph Hanzl, RN, CCRP, CMM • Vice President: Brenda Foose, CMM, HITCM-PP • Secretary: Suzette Benedick, MBA, CHC, CMM, HITCM-PP • Treasurer: Matt Rohrbach • Membership Director: Lisa Seed, MD We would like to thank our 2019 out-going officers, Wanda Cronrath and Vivian Davis for their time and commitment to the chapter. In keeping with tradition, the chapter started the new year inviting George Hlavac, Esq. who spoke on “Wage and Hour Issues: Are you Properly Compensating Your Employees”. George is a great resource and always provides great suggestions. The officers look forward to an educational and exciting year with PAHCOM as we work together to share knowledge. Upcoming speakers include Jennifer Swinnich from the PA Medical Society on March 18 and a CPA speaking on finance in May. If you have not yet developed a partnership with your local Medical Associations and Societies, these groups can provide you with a wealth of knowledge. These groups exist to help physicians and their staff in every aspect of their practices, from employee recruitment to physician education to MACRA/MIPS. They can also be extremely helpful in educating your physicians on the importance of hiring PAHCOM Certified Medical Managers. Respectfully, Steph Hanzl, RN, CCRP, CMM 2020 President Lehigh Valley PAHCOM Chapter
