Construction Shortages Ahead Skilled Labor Skilled Manager
10/30/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Online seminar Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview

This webinar provides a detailed look at recent trends and outlook for construction spending, materials costs and employment, nationally and by state. Rather than treating construction as a single industry or a simple split between residential and nonresidential, the webinar delves into the sharply differing trends and future drivers for single- and multifamily residential construction, 10 categories of private nonresidential construction, and the leading public categories-highway & street and educational, both K-12 and higher.

The recent strong growth in construction employment and sharp drop in unemployment are examined, along with evidence of current and likely shortages of skilled labor in different occupations. National employment data are disaggregated to show which states are experiencing the strongest growth and which are lagging. Evidence is provided on how pricing of new construction projects compares with changes in labor and materials costs, along with an examination of costs for specific inputs.

The Value of Hourly Cost Maintenance Programs Webinar By Compliance4all
10/29/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Online seminar Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Why should you Attend:

A brand-new aircraft comes with a warranty that will cover the operator’s unscheduled maintenance costs. Warranty coverage intervals vary by aircraft sector (e.g., airframe, Engines, Avionics) and, over time, aircraft maintenance will account for as much as 35% of your aircraft’s annual operating budget. The cost to maintain an aircraft varies by make / model and age, and its maintenance program is based on three parameters: flight hours; landings (what is also referred to as cycles); and the passage of time (due to calendar-based maintenance events). Scheduled maintenance will include "cost spikes," such as major airframe maintenance, and engine or Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) overhaul. Additionally, scheduled maintenance costs become less predictable as an aircraft ages, and unscheduled maintenance events can occur at any time and be very expensive.

Who Will Benefit:

Aircraft Owners, Operators, Buyers, Sellers, Financiers, Appraisers, and Insurers.

Senior corporate executives involved in the aircraft acquisition, operation and/or disposition process.

Flight Department Managers, including Directors of Aviation and Chief Pilots.

Aircraft Maintenance Managers.

Personnel involved in aircraft financing, including Credit Officers, Risk Officers, and Asset Managers

Summary:

Overview: This course covers a wide range of CPT coding concepts with numerous interesting and information examples from the instructor's over 15 years of experience and training over 1,000 certified coders. In addition, the presenter has practical knowledge in coding and billing teaching hundreds of live seminars worldwide. It starts with the basics such manual symbols, place of service codes and the organization of the CPT manual. It then covers the highlights for every section of the CPT manual. Key areas include E & M, surgical guidelines, OB/GYN rules, modifiers and the CPT appendices.

The goal here is to impart to billers, management and Providers the complexity and scope of the CPT manual using actual examples from each section. In addition, this course is a great introduction and review for medical coders. It does not require any prior knowledge of coding or billing. The take-away here is a solid foundation of CPT coding concepts with specific examples and how they relate to the bigger picture of compliance, accuracy and reimbursement.

How to Develop an Effective Compliance Program
10/30/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online training Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: Fraud, waste and abuse are spiraling out of control in the United States. The federal government is the biggest target for fraudsters because it spends hundreds of billions of dollars subsidizing federal programs. Medicare, the federal health insurance program for millions of Americans who are over age 65, disabled or have end stage renal disease, is the largest federal health care program. Because of rising health care costs and the proliferation of fraud, waste and abuse in the health care industry, the government continues to pass legislation and enforcement activities directed at the health care industry.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) believe that an effective compliance program can significantly reduce fraud, waste and abuse. In addition, prosecutors may not pursue a criminal action against organizations that have an effective compliance program. Consequently, implementing an effective compliance program could minimize the consequences resulting from a violation of the law. In fact, the U.S. Sentencing Commission Guidelines specifically mandate lesser criminal sanctions for companies that have effective compliance. Generally, the OIG will look to the effectiveness of the compliance program as a factor when determining the level of sanctions, penalties, and/or exclusions to be imposed on the provider.

In addition to reducing the risk of criminal and civil liabilities and sanctions, compliance programs offer many other benefits. Primarily, a compliance program fulfills the provider's legal duty to ensure that it is not submitting false or inaccurate claims to government and private payors. Equally important, a compliance program helps a provider fulfill its care-giving mission to residents and patients and the community. It improves quality of care and operations because it assists the provider to identify weaknesses and to improve upon internal systems and business office management. Furthermore, an effective compliance plan and program concretely demonstrates to employees and the community at large the provider's strong commitment that it is honest and ethical in its corporate conduct. In addition, it helps provide a more accurate view of employee and contractor behavior relating to fraud and abuse.

A compliance program reduces the likelihood of wrongdoing, aids in the early detection of issues, and establishes a structure for internal reporting and investigation. In addition, it helps prevent criminal activity and illustrates a lack of intent to perform unlawful acts; thus, in cases where the government uncovers fraud, it shows that reasonable efforts have been made by management to prevent and detect any misconduct that occurs within the entity. By initiating immediate and appropriate corrective action; and through early detection and reporting, you can minimize the loss to the government from false claims, and thereby reduce your exposure to civil damages and penalties, criminal sanctions, and administrative remedies, such as program exclusion.

Why should you attend: SNFs face complex challenges that require new and coordinated approaches by the quality, compliance and risk management teams. A survey finding of immediate jeopardy could be followed by a wrongful death lawsuit, attorney general investigation, professional licensure actions, 'qui tam' civil lawsuit or criminal enforcement action. SNF leadership won't want to miss this insightful presentation that will review the key strategies and tactics necessary to evaluate and update current program efforts to maximize outcomes, while minimizing the typical program 'gaps' that leave SNFs vulnerable to the 'perfect storm' that churns up complex issues tied to quality, compliance and risk management.
