“MACRA, What You Need to Know”
Seema Rathor, Practice Facilitator, HealthInsight

As part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), the Quality Payment Program (QPP) changes the Medicare payment system to reward physicians and other health care providers for delivering high-value care. The shift from a fee-for-service model to a value-based one will require changes throughout the health care system, including better information sharing and collaboration between providers and among health care payers.

The presentation will include overview of Merit-based Incentive Program system (MIPS), scoring method and how to improve quality scores.

Seema Rathor has a clinical science background and over seven years of experience in the healthcare information technology industry.  She is trained to support small and large clinics with electronic medical record needs and quality reporting.  She has supported and implemented workflows to meet quality measures and meaningful use requirements.  Seema has been educating clinics about the merit based incentive program (MIPS) since last October.  Her passion is to train healthcare professionals to optimize EMR efficiency and develop lean workflows so that providers can spend more time with their family!

“Breach of Unsecured Protected Health Information”
David J. Madigan, Attorney at Law , Cooney, Cooney and Madigan, LLC

This presentation will discuss determination and reporting of a breach. 

The term “breach” means the acquisition, access, use or disclosure of protected health information in a manner not otherwise permitted under the HIPAA Privacy Rule which compromises the security or privacy of the protected health information. The term “protected health information” means any patient information, including very basic information such as their name or address, that (1) relates to the past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition of an individual, the provision of health care to an individual, or the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to an individual, and (2) either identifies the individual or could reasonably be used to identify the individual.

DAVID MADIGAN is a healthcare attorney who has been in practice for 16 years.  Mr. Madigan is a member of Cooney Cooney & Madigan, LLC, where he represents a wide variety of healthcare professionals in all aspects of their practice.  As a healthcare attorney, his practice focuses on defending Board complaints, advising healthcare practices on state and federal regulations, including Medicare, HIPAA privacy and security compliance, and data breach investigations and defense, antitrust, EMTALA and Stark regulations as well as setting up group practices.  He is licensed to practice in both Oregon and Washington.  He is a frequent speaker to healthcare providers on issues pertaining to Board discipline, HIPAA privacy and security compliance, insurance audits, and law and ethics relating to medical and mental health providers and risk management.

2017 MTO Sponsor/Speaker Opportunities still Available.

As an OMGMA Partner and/or Exhibitor, there is an opportunity for you to participate in these events in multiple ways. First, we need financial support for the event which includes the speaker, venue, lunch, and the networking time at the end of each outreach event. OMGMA only allows up to 3 sponsors per MTO meeting. Each sponsor slot is available for $1,000. You may choose 1, 2 or all 3 slots.

Additionally, we need high quality speakers to come to these events and present valuable information to medical managers. Many of you have connections to great speakers in the community, and I would like to collaborate with you to bring them to these events. The topics need to be enticing enough for a manager to leave their busy office on a Friday afternoon.

Format: The format for these events includes a complimentary lunch starting at 1:00 pm. OMGMA Announcements and Sponsor introductions will be at 1:45 pm. The first speaker will be from 2:00 - 3:00 pm. We will then have a short break at 3:00 pm. The second speaker will be from 3:10 - 4:10 pm.
