Foley Partner Janice Anderson is speaking on an audio conference for Audio Educator.com on New Reporting, Payment & Enforcement Regs That Could Cost Your Healthcare Organization. Ms. Anderson is speaking on October 8, 2008 from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Central Time.

Don't let a rising tide of healthcare reforms swamp your healthcare organization. A revolution is underway in healthcare -- and it's picking up force as the federal government rolls out a comprehensive program to ensure Medicare gets what it pays for across the continuum of care. As a result, providers face new federally mandated quality reporting, payment and enforcement requirements. And healthcare organizations that don't respond proactively to the changes will find themselves on the short end of the stick payment-wise -- and on the long end of the stick in the enforcement realm.

And to make things worse, time is NOT on your side. Act today to ensure your healthcare organization meets its fiduciary responsibility to oversee the quality of care and patient safety. In this 1-hour audio conference, Janice Anderson, JD, will highlight milestones in the federal government's transformation from passive payer to active healthcare purchaser -- and what each means for you in practical terms. You'll learn what your governing board must do first to keep up with the brave new world of patient care and safety.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Key points in the OIG's guidance for healthcare organization's boards -- fail to consider these at your ownperil.
  • The feds' new proposed changes to payment policy -- see what's controversial and why.
  • Data mining: What it is, and how it raises the risks for healthcare organizations.
  • Innovative ways your board can work with medical staff to frame and implement a new quality agenda.
  • The biggest pitfalls in the changing payment and regulatory landscape.

Have additional questions? You have the floor with Ms. Anderson during an interactive Q&A!

Who should attend? Boards of trustees, senior management, chief medical officers, in-house counsel, chief compliance officers, compliance directors, risk managers, quality managers, and anyone interested in safeguarding the future profitability of their health care organizations.
