Compliance Problems and Pitfalls with Physician Practice EHR Systems — Deficiencies You Must Address Now! 

Robert W. LilesTom CollinsonAs the use of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems has expanded, so has the number of documentation, coding and billing problems associated with the use of these record keeping systems.  Unfortunately, it seems like many of the EHR systems being used by physician practices were developed primarily by programmers, with only minimal input from the clinicians, coders and billers responsible for actually ensuring that the services recorded are factually accurate and comply, fully, with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.  In recent years, we have seen administrative, civil and criminal cases brought against agencies based on false or fraudulent information entered into a practice’s EHR.  In this session, we will examine the primary problems typically identified by government auditors and discuss how these problems could have been avoided.  Join Liles Parker Attorney Robert W. Liles and Chief Legal Officer for RXNT, Tom Collinson, one of the leading medical practice EHR systems currently in the market, as they discuss the benefits and risks of using an HER system. This webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes with a Q & A session to follow. Registration is free for all AMBA members and clients of Liles Parker, Attorneys & Counselors at Law. Please register here.

TPEs, ADRs, Pre-Payment Reviews, Post-Payment Audits and Suspensions – What’s the Big Deal?

Healthcare Attorney

Over the past year, more and more physician practices and clinics have been subjected to Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) audits, Additional Documentation Requests (ADRs), Pre-Payment Reviews and / or Post-Payment Audits by both UPICs and ZPICs. While the government has placed some restrictions on their use, contractors continue to exercise great latitude in their scope and the length that they are imposed. Similarly, contractors remain in control of post-payments conducted and suspension actions recommended to CMS. In this webinar, Attorneys Heidi Kocher and Michael Cook will discuss these enforcement actions and outline the adverse impact each action can have on your practice (and on your third-party billing company). This webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes with a Q & A session to follow. Registration is free for all AMBA members and Liles Parker clients. Please register here.

Ethical Marketing for Third-Party Billing Companies  and Physician Practices on a Budget

Outside billers and medical practices haven’t really marketed very aggressively using the internet. With the exception of select specialty areas (such as dentists) and a limited number of large outside billing companies, most billing companies haven’t engaged in active online marketing.  That means that the competition isn’t going to be as aggressive as it is in other industries.  To a lesser extent, this is also true for small physician practices.  Customers today are not constrained by geography. There has been a generational shift when it comes to identifying a vendor or health care provider. Now, more than any prior time in history, health care providers will be more willing to use third-party billing companies outside of their community (and even out-of-state). In this session, Salma Mokbel and Attorney Ish Laher will present several digital marketing steps you can take that that are free or very inexpensive. This webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes with a Q & A session to follow. Registration is free for all AMBA members and Liles Parker clients. Please register here.

OIG Work Plan Update – Areas of Focus Now and in the Future

We will also discuss steps you can take to keep your practice and / or third-party billing company within the four corners of the law.
