Active Shooter in a Healthcare Facility-Planning for Responding to & Recovering from the Unthinkable

This presentation discusses how a healthcare facility is one of the easiest “soft targets” the active shooter can find…countless open doors on the perimeter make it an easy target. Staff must be prepared to recognize the event, respond properly, and recover afterwards. And, in the COVID-19 world, that risk may move to an even higher level.

Diagnosis Coding: The Cost of One and Done

The documentation of detailed clinical information should result in the assignment of accurate and hopefully reimbursable diagnosis codes. As practices look to streamline documentation and coding processes it is critical to practice continual quality improvement. The goal should always be to minimize additional work for providers while ensuring that the patients’ needs are being addressed clinically and financially. This session focuses on key areas of concern to balance compliance with operational efficiency. Understanding how diagnosis codes are utilized by insurance payers and other industry stakeholders is vital to ensuring that your organization receives appropriate recognition and credit for quality care.

Suicide Prevention: How YOU Can Save a Life

In the U.S., suicide is the 10th leading cause of death, claiming over 48,000 lives every year. Even more tragic, it’s the 2nd leading cause of death for young people ages 10 - 34 and the fourth leading cause of death among individuals ages 35 - 54. Suicide IS preventable, yet most are misinformed about suicide and its leading causes, signs, and symptoms. Most feel insecure talking about suicide. Unfortunately, the longer we continue to not talk about it, the more people die. This session will help attendees understand how to be a part of the solution. Individuals will learn about suicide prevalence, suicide myths, facts, warning signs, as well as effective ways for asking someone if they are suicidal and how to respond when the answer to that question is “yes.” This session is too important to miss as it can literally teach people how to save a life.

Why are Security & Governance for Health Data Analytics Vital?

This webinar is presented by Feisal Nanji, CEO and Executive Director at Techumen LLC. Data analytics can substantially help reduce costs by analyzing vast amounts of payor, patient, and provider data. In using data analytics, everyone in the health care supply chain must be ready to securely manage vast patient data sets that will move in high volume and at high velocity. If such activities are not governed correctly, a breach of a single data set will result in a very large breach and a serious dent to reputation and the possibility of severe sanctions. This webinar will cover the following objectives:

Hybrid Patient Care Models: How Medical Practices Thrive After COVID-19

Trevor Brown, Vice President of Business Development at Relatient, presents this informative webinar today. The COVID-19 pandemic complicated healthcare delivery as healthcare organizations limited procedures and in-office visits to essential care only and quickly spun up Telehealth services to treat patients remotely, protecting both patients and staff. Now, as medical practices, hospitals, and health systems have welcomed their patients back, they face new challenges, including increased gaps in care, staying prepared for future disruptions big and small, and meeting new patient expectations that shifted during the pandemic's crisis points. Hybrid care models are helping medical providers meet the need by combining in-office and Telehealth visits with digital workflows that streamline the patient journey, get patients engaged in their care again, and maintain best practices learned during COVID-19. In this presentation, we'll take a look at hybrid care models in action, strategies for powering them effectively, and steps for getting started or refining what's already in place.

Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX presents. “As part of the Department’s effort to fully protect patients’ health information and their rights under HIPAA, OCR has issued this important new fact sheet clearly explaining a business associate’s liability,” said OCR Director Roger Severino. In 2013, under the authority granted by the HITECH Act, OCR issued the Final Omnibus Rule that, among other things, identified provisions of the HIPAA Rules that apply directly to business associates and for which business associates are directly liable. One of the most notable items is the Business Associate Agreement.
