EXCELLENCE IN A CHANGING WORLD OF HEALTHCARE

The foundation of medical reimbursement is changing at a pace far too fast for many of us to process let alone make formative changes in our practices to compete.  Private equity, consolidation, healthcare reform, technology and compliance with federal,   state, and commercial programs are all putting pressures on the independent practice that are creating an environment of instability.  Learn fundamental principles that can insulate your practice and insure its success in the new and emerging world of health care.

EXCELLENCE IN COMPLIANCE

Practicing optometrists are faced with significant responsibilities to comply with state and federal laws related to patient privacy, patient protection, fraud and abuse and quality reporting. Government enforcement of HIPAA, OSHA, HR and fraud and abuse laws is at an all-time high. Providers are also being asked to go above and beyond normal medical record documentation to substantiate provision of quality care (MIPS).

EXCELLENCE IN PRIMARY EYE CARE DELIVERY

Knowledge and management of primary eye disease is rapidly changing. It is also full of some fact, some fiction and a good deal of opinion. This presentation attempts to provide current, evidence based, ethical concepts in the diagnosis and management of five common ophthalmic encounters - dry eyes, cataracts, care of the diabetic patient, glaucoma and retinal disorders. Current diagnosis and treatment modalities are discussed often with clinical examples to demonstrate care. Each segment includes a short discussion of ethical decisions in reimbursement of these conditions based on current technology.

Schedules are subject to change.
