Our August Webinar featured a website overview and training on compliance program management. This is an excellent webinar for anyone managing an HCP compliance program that could use a refresher on all of the tools and features available! 

We covered how to:

  • Keep your employee roster updated - we don't want you to pay for individuals that aren't currently employed!
  • Manage your reminders hub - make sure your staff is being notified when their annual training is due and keep your management team on top of required compliance tasks!
  •  Update your policies and procedures - changes in your administration means edits may be needed for your policies!

There have been many enhancements to our website recently, so if you have questions on managing your compliance program - whether you are a new HCP client, or you've been using our services for years - this is a great webinar to watch.

Whether providers were considered eligible to participate in the transition year (2017) or considered excluded from participation, the majority of providers we talked to wondered what would happen in year 2 of MIPS. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued the proposed rule for 2018. According to CMS the proposed rule would make changes in the second year of the Quality Payment Program as required by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Learn how these changes will affect your practice.
