ICD-10 Survival Kit: 10 Part DVD Education Set
Speaker: Judy Adams,RN, BSN, HCS-D, HCS-O

Topic: ICD-10 SURVIVAL KIT:10 Part DVD Education Series

The material is not limited to Medicare since all other payers will also be using the ICD-10 code set. Agencies that provide only aide or non-skilled services typically use less of the range of codes than those organizations that provide skilled services, however, payers such as state Medicaid and other private payers often have rules about what ICD codes they will and will not accept on claims.

Topic: Mergers & Acquisitions:Be Smart, Be Proactive, Be Ready

1:00pm - 4:00pm
Is ‘going it alone’ still a viable option or would strategic affiliations with other providers be the answer to sustainability? This seminar will provide an overview of the business and legal issues involved in pursuing various strategies such as: remaining independent, consolidating with other agencies (through joint ventures, mergers, or outright acquisitions), consolidating with other health care systems (including ACOs) or partnering with third party payers and organized delivery systems (ODS). A variety of business strategies and legal structures will be explored so agencies can understand their options in pursuing strategic plans.
