Operations Track: Grow your own Experts!!!
Presented by Stacy Calvaruso
Description: 
Growing your own experts may be the only way to go!! How could you?  Why would you? During this session Stacy will go over strategies that she has developed to help organizations grow their own experts.  She will discuss the reasons why an organization would want to consider a 'grow your own' approach.  She will review three key strategies that an organization can take to optimize their team.  

Step 1 will focus on how to develop a matrix that can be used to determine what is a compensable factor.  When deciding on which positions warrant a higher rate of pay, it is important to know what tasks/skill set is ranked higher than others so that you can determine your organization rate of pay accordingly.  This leads to a reduced turnover expense in the long term.  

Step 2 will be a review associated with developing an effective mentoring program that is not dependent 100% on the organizational owner.  We will look at a structured model that not only focuses on the mentee but on the mentor.  

Step 3 will be a review on how to perform staffing calibrations to ensure that organizations are able to identify those top performers, middle of the road performers and the dead weight.

Learning Objectives
Course participants will be able to:

  1. Walk away with a full understanding of how to create a modernized pay scale that team members can finally understand and embrace. 
  2. Develop and implement a mentoring program in their organization. 
  3. Create, complete, and deliver effective employee calibrations.

General Track: Legal Lessons from the Change Healthcare Data Breach
Presented by Mark Cunningham
Description: 
In early 2024, the United States healthcare system was significantly disrupted because of cyberattack on one of the country's largest clearinghouses, Change Healthcare. The cyberattack resulted in the cessation of Change's clearinghouse operations and disrupted services throughout the United States' healthcare infrastructure, including the revenue cycle industry. 
 
This presentation will focus on the fundamental problems caused by the Change event, including an overview of the operational disruptions and the legal consequences, with a specific focus on its impact to the revenue cycle management (RCM) industry.  Due to the cyberattack, parties throughout the healthcare industry have grappled with privacy issues, client disputes, allegations of default and struggles to perform services at historical levels. 
 
We will analyze the primary legal issues implicated in the event, address steps that need to be taken by RCM to the billing companies to manage future potential risks, and review specific contractual provisions that need to be considered both within client and third-party vendor contracts.

We will also address exposed weaknesses within the clearinghouse framework and discuss whether the healthcare industry can modify existing claim processes or require more interoperability to avoid similar catastrophic situations in the future.
 
The hope is that an attendee will be able to mitigate its existing risk profile and gain tactics to better protect itself from either future cyberattacks and/or allegations of non-performance that are outside of their control.

Learning Objectives
Course participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the legal consequences associated with and potential fallout from the cyberattack on Change Healthcare

Operations Track: Finally, No More Surprises in the No Surprises Act
Presented by Thomas LaGreca
Description:
The federal regulators responsible for implementing the NSA had interpreted the law in ways that were extremely challenging to the medical community. Those interpretations have included: 1. Affording the median in-network rate, the factor most favorable to the insurance industry, preferential treatment. 2. Requiring arbitrations to be on a per-CPT-code basis, rather than a per-claim basis. 3. The filing costs and arbitrator fees dramatically increased from 2022 to 2023, making many arbitrations cost prohibitive. 4. The delays alone in resolving payment disputes have caused hundreds of billions of dollars in damage to the medical community. There is cause for genuine optimism, however. A federal district court in Texas on 4 occasions has ruled in favor of the medical community, and this same court is addressing the issues of the per-code requirement and the filing cost increase. As a result, the medical community's success rate has greatly improved, the awards are for greater amounts, the cos structure is less prohibitive, and the timeline for resolutions has become much shorter.  The delays and frustrations of the past two years are largely behind us, and, for this reason, it is critical that the medical community be involved in the NSA arbitration process and stays updated on the newest interpretations of the law and how it is being implemented. It is fast becoming the forum for all things out-of-network.

Learning Objectives
Course participants will be able to:

  1. To convey the most up-to-date information regarding the NSA, so that revenue cycle managers can adjust their behavior accordingly.   
  2. To ask whether your revenue cycle process is staying abreast of the latest developments? 
  3. To enable practices to predict what the revenue cycle landscape might look like in the near- and long-term.
