    Webinar On Healthcare Coding, Billing and Reimbursement: An Overview

    Overview: Many people work with various aspects of healthcare coding and billing but may not understand how providers generate their claim data, how they report the data to payors, and how payors use that information to reimburse providers. This webinar provides a high-level overview of all major aspects of healthcare coding, billing, and reimbursement. We discuss key data elements of the two major claim forms (CMS-1500 and UB04) and how that information tells the story of the patient’s encounter with the provider. We review the major coding systems including CPT, HCPCS, ICD-9, ICD-10, DRG, and APC, and examine how codes in each system are assigned and the purpose of each system. We review the typical process flow for how a provider submits a claim and gets reimbursed. We discuss the fundamentals of physician and hospital reimbursement, including a brief conversation of relative value units (RVUs) are and how they are used to reimburse providers.

    How to Best Manage the Emotional Rollercoaster of Asperger Syndrome-High Functioning Autism

    Many professionals are frequently frustrated when presented with a client who has social deficits associated with Asperger Syndrome/High Functioning Autism. These individuals often manifest a variety of deficits that are typically beyond the scope of many well-intentioned therapists. Techniques that have been successfully used for years with clients who struggle with similar issues but do not have the Asperger Syndrome/High Functioning Autism are often ineffective when dealing with this population and leave both the client and professional frustrated. Frequently these clients develop significant stress due to faulty social-pragmatic communication. It is this stress that creates the subsequent behavioral issues resulting in emotional outbursts that many professionals find extremely difficult to manage.

    The Neuropsychological Profile of ADHD: Treat the Symptoms Not the Disorder. How to Better Diagnose and Help those with ADHD

In this workshop we will discuss different underpinnings of ADHD through imaging studies and areas of the brain that are most impacted in those with ADHD. This understanding will help clinicians and parents better target interventions. We will discuss lower order causes found in the orbitofrontal and subcortical areas, as well as higher order weaknesses such as working memory and mental flexibility.

    How you are Violating HIPAA Every Day

    Covered entities and business associates have very specific requirements under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule and Breach Notification Rule. Enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) HIPAA appears to be constantly changing, not based on new regulations, but guidance and newsletters from the OCR, Office of the Inspector General, Office of National Coordinator and CMS. In addition, OCR adopts many of the publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Without a clear understanding of how to apply the standards in your office, you will most likely be in violation of some aspect of HIPAA every day. Small matters such as not posting your Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) in your waiting room or not listing electronic exchanges on your Notice.

    Powerful Pain Management Strategies: Communication Tools to Successfully Assess Pain and Dramatically Increase Patient Satisfaction

    Overview: This session will provide specific and easy to implement strategies to help ALL clinicians, not just pain management specialists. Pain management is more than "passing meds." This session is not about different types of pain medications. Rather, it is about building a relationship with the patient and together finding the best method of managing pain. At times, healthcare professionals cannot completely remove all pain. However, even patients experiencing some pain (that is tolerable) can still give high patient satisfaction scores. Pain management is much more than managing the pain; it is also about managing the perceptions. Choosing the right words is as important as choosing the right medications. Why should you Attend: The inability to clearly understand all facets of pain management could lead to disaster on many levels. Improper communication about pain could lead to patient mismanagement and devastating consequences, including serious medical issues and death.

    3-Hour Virtual Seminar - Reporting HIPAA Breaches: Protection and Prevention

    Overview: Everyone in the healthcare industry knows about HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), that has been in effect since 1996. The goal of the legislation was fairly simple - to safeguard our patient health information. The law dictated to entities how to protect health information (PHI), how it can be shared, when it can be shared, and with whom it can be shared. To date, even the best of healthcare organizations struggle with feeling confident that they have all the required areas covered to protect and prevent HIPAA violations from occurring in their organization. It is well documented that by initiating proper training and implementing effective monitoring tools, HIPAA violations can be reduced or more readily identified in the workplace. Often there is not clear communication to employees about "what constitutes a HIPAA breach" and how can this be reported in your organization without "fear of retaliation."

    How People with Depression Think - How to Help

    Overview: Humans are thinking machines and most people have similar thought processes. Most people have reasonable, measured, moderate thoughts. And while there are many variations on this theme, these thoughts occur on a bell curve with most people being in the meaty part of the curve. Those with major depressive disorder (major depression), however, often have very extreme thoughts and their thought processes often exist on the very far ends of the bell curve. This can make understanding how a person with major depression acts very challenging as these actions are driven by thought processes the average person doesn't experience. While these thoughts may seem “crazy” at first, it's important to realize that these thoughts are simply an extreme part of the human experience that do fall along a continuum that is experienced by everyone.
