Roundtable Discussion: Navigating LGBTQ+ Issues in the Workplace

October 25, 2018 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

Employers face a shifting patchwork of state laws and significant conflict between federal court interpretations of existing protections against employment discrimination and harassment that at least potentially shield LGBTQ+ applicants and employees. Moreover, our understanding about the ways in which these applicants and employees may be negatively impacted by workplace biases, both obvious and subtle, continues to evolve. As a result, many employers are uncertain about how to navigate LGBTQ+ issues that may arise in their own workplaces.

This one-hour webinar, moderated by Pamela Wolf, Senior Employment Law Analyst with Wolters Kluwer Legal and Regulatory U.S., will feature an all-star panel of attorneys who will walk through various LGBTQ+ discrimination and harassment issues and offer their insights on “real life” scenarios that employers may be facing.

Disclosing Protected Health Information from the Business Office: Workflows for Efficiency and Compliance

October 25, 2018 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Business office personnel release millions of medical records annually to commercial health plans and government payers to expedite payment of claims, appeal denials, or fulfill auditor requests. Time spent by billers and collectors aggregating and sending this Protected Health Information represents a significant distraction and efficiency challenge for business office directors and revenue cycle leadership. The interference in workflow also reduces revenue-producing claims-processing time for uniquely skilled business office staff. Furthermore, a non-standardized process may increase the chance of patient privacy concerns. This presentation will detail current process gaps resulting in inefficiencies and privacy concerns, then review alternative workflow options for healthcare leaders looking to improve their billing processes, decrease denials, minimize access to protected health information and enhance overall compliance.

November 8, 2018 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Telehealth continues to be an innovative tool to manage quality of care and patient access in the ever-changing world of healthcare. As part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, Congress loosened several regulations allowing more flexibility and coverage for Medicare and Veteran beneficiaries. Individual states are also revising laws governing the use of telemedicine to promote access to residents. No surprise, the OIG has also added telehealth to their agenda to monitor billing practices. This webinar touches on relevant policy changes for 2018 and how billable services are impacted by documentation in this setting.
