HCCA’s Clinical Practice Compliance Conference just wrapped up. This was their first-ever virtual Clinical Practice Compliance Conference, where a ton of great speakers are aligned for two days of insights, government updates, and best practices that help compliance professionals better manage their compliance programs. Everyone in attendance surely left with ideas on how to better identify and mitigate their risks, while improving the care of patients within their organizations. Their agenda included sessions on a number of pertinent topics, including:
- Clinician and Physician Compliance Best Practices
- Stark Law
- Billing Standards & Incident to Billing
- Mitigating Risk
- Risk-based Audit Methods
- Opioid Prescribing: A Legal and Medical Risk Perspective
- HIPAA Security
- Medical Director Contracts
And what a whirlwind those two days were! Over the course of the conference I attended a ton of virtual courses and delivered my own presentation, Billing and Coding Cases Gone Wrong, with my colleague Jay McVean, who serves as a Director at UT Health.
There was so much information that in order to capture it all, I had to take notes like my life depended on it. But it was worth the hand cramps because I learned so much and had a wonderful time.
Because I know not everyone can attend each year, and even if you were able to attend, no one can attend every session, I’d like to share my notes from some of my favorite sessions. Download my new eBrief, “Clinical Practice Compliance Conference: The Greatest Hits,” for an insider’s look at several sessions, including:
- Why You Can Never Over Communicate with Employees
- How to Use Publicly-available Billing Data to Identify Audit Targets
- What Social Media Mistakes You Need to Avoid
