July 18 - Home Sleep Testing and the CPAP Supplier:  What is Proper and What is Improper- with Jeff Baird

2-3:30 pm

This webinar is approved for 1 CEU credit for RTs from AARC. This webinar is also approved for 1 CEU for nursing credits from Grand View Hospital.

“Grand View Hospital is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by PA State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation”.

Awareness about obstructive sleep apnea today is similar to awareness of diabetes 20 years ago. Most physicians (not just pulmonologists) are aware that OSA leads to many health problems. The opportunity for the DME supplier is to be able to sell the CPAP to the patient as well as the supplies (mask, tubing and filter) on a regular basis thereafter. In the past, testing for OSA occurred primarily in “brick and mortar” sleep labs where the patient would spend the night. Over the last several years, testing for OSA has increasingly shifted to home sleep testing. This is more cost-effective and patient friendly. Recognizing that abuse can occur if the DME supplier has any connection with the HST, CMS has essentially said that a CPAP supplier can have nothing to do with a HST. As to whether commercial insurers impose similar restrictions is on an insurer-by-insurer basis. This program will discuss the restrictions that CMS has placed on DME suppliers, the consequences if the supplier does not adhere to the restrictions, and the type of relationship that the DME supplier can have with the HST entity. Lastly, this program will discuss whether the restrictions apply to a CPAP supplier that is owned by a hospital that also conducts the HSTs.

August 16 - Cybersecurity: Don’t Risk it All When it Comes to Patient Data – with Carol Albaugh

2-3:30 pm

This webinar will give attendees a realistic perspective of the criminal lurking from half a world away—trying to steal your private business and patient information. The FBI reports that the stealing of health care records is the Holy Grail for hackers, offering them a huge payday. There is valuable data within the patient information business store, including Social Security numbers, credit cards, dates of birth, insurance account numbers, and up-to-date contact information. This session will give attendees guidance on how they can learn from others’ mistakes and protect their business from hackers.

October 24 - How to Handle the Non-Compliant Patient – with Jeff Baird

2-3:30 pm

This webinar is approved for 1 CEU credit for RTs from AARC. This webinar is also approved for 1 CEU for nursing credits from Grand View Hospital.

“Grand View Hospital is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by PA State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation”

A “noncompliant patient” can take many forms. For example, a CPAP patient may negligently, recklessly or intentionally damage his concentrator. As yet another example, the oxygen patient may fail to have a face-to-face visit with his physician in order for the DME supplier to obtain a recertification CMN. And what about the oxygen patient who refuses to return his concentrator when the RUL has expired? Or what about the oxygen patient who insists on smoking when using the concentrator? This program will discuss the legal rights the supplier has in response to a noncompliant patient. Recognizing, however, that it may be unrealistic…and perhaps even risky…for the supplier to exercise its legal rights, the program will discuss practical steps that the supplier can take to deal with a noncompliant patient. Examples of practical steps include sending out reminder letters, sending out lapse notifications, offering gift card incentives to persuade a patient to return an item, and contacting the patient’s physician and/or caregiver.
