Tracking and management of shadow IT activities

Reducing cloud and cloud service sprawl

Coordination of multiple cloud management tools

When and How to Build Private and Hybrid Clouds Webinar By EITAGlobal
4/30/2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Online Event(World wide) Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

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.

Business Associate Agreements Why the Pushback from Business Associates
5/27/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

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

Coding and Documenting CPT and HCPC Modifiers Accurately and Compliantly
5/13/2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

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)

Ethical Issues in Human Subjects Research Webinar By MentorHealth
5/7/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

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
