Webinar for CFOs and Compliance: Minimize OIG Risk and Penalties

REGISTER HERE

Hospitals not in compliance with CMS requirements for medical device warranty credits risk substantial fines from the OIG. While the average fine is $400k, many audit reports reveal penalties in the millions.

Join Champion Healthcare and Chief Compliance Officers and CFOs from across the country for an interactive webinar on Thursday, November 21 at 10am CT to discuss:

  • The complexities of medical device warranty claims management
  • The significant costs of non-compliance for hospitals
  • Best practices leveraged by leading health systems to reduce OIG audit risk, minimize financial penalties, and increase warranty credits retained

The Scanning Imperative-- Machine Learning and AI to Advance UDI Benefits

October 16 | 12pm-1pm CT

Sign up here and use "ahrmmscanning" at checkout to waive registration fees.

Please join us for a webinar hosted by AHRMM and in collaboration with Zebra Technologies and AIS. This is part 3 in a series of 3 webinars.

Webinar Overview

The rapid advancement of barcode scanning and RFID technologies coupled with improved interoperability will enable a new level of data analytics that will impact the entire health care field.

In the final webinar of the AHRMM scanning series, Scanning 301 will focus on how automated capture of the UDI at the point of care serves as the basis to improve current operations and ultimately predict which devices will be the most effective for specific patient populations. Learn more about Scanning 101 and Scanning 201.

This session’s speakers will explain how the UDI coupled with machine learning and/or Artificial intelligence (AI) will help track devices and implants to understand their impact in ways we never thought possible.

The speakers will provide examples of how current data collected in your health care organization can be used to improve operational efficiencies, and steps you can take to enhance its future potential.

 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the relationships between UDI, good data (fully populated, accurate, unburdened by human error) and big data.
  • Describe new technologies that will make it possible to capture all devices including surgical tray implants and bill only devices.
  • Identify ways UDI solution capabilities can be expanded to improve operations.
  • Consider how machine learning and AI will augment and enhance data analytics.

Presenters: 

  • Mike Nolan, President, Automatic Identification Systems (AIS)
  • Chris Sullivan, Zebra Technologies
  • Peter Casady, former CEO, Champion Healthcare Technologies

The Scanning Imperative - Analytics, RFID, and Integration

August 7 | 12pm-1pm CT

Sign up here and use "ahrmmscanning" at checkout to waive registration fees.

Please join us for a webinar hosted by AHRMM and in collaboration with Zebra Technologies and AIS. This is part 2 in a series of 3 webinars.

Webinar Overview

Management of inventory turns, reducing waste due to product expiration, and reducing inventory reconciliation adjustments are all possible thanks to the UDI barcode. Although scanning is a common practice throughout hospitals today with pharmaceuticals and patient identification, it’s relatively new for medical devices and supplies. Many health systems are still typing the UDI-DI into their EHR systems for medical devices. This practice is prone to human key entry error.

In the second installment of our scanning series, leading experts will discuss best practices for data capture and which approaches achieve the best outcomes based on potential use case scenarios. Our presenters will go in-depth to demonstrate the accuracy of data output, leading to increased confidence in clinical variation analysis and standardization discussions. In addition, we will explore software and hardware integration, visualize data modeling and identify areas where functionality can be maximized.

 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Determine the appropriate scanning approach for your organization based on leading practices use case scenarios and appropriate tools for each job (precursor to 301 with advanced technologies, situation requirements, etc.)
  • Describe to your team and c-Suite how scanning is used to drive accurate data analytics and standardization
  • Discuss data integration and how to maximize the functionality of various hospital software systems including EDI, Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC), ERP and EHR systems and ultimate data standardization outcomes

Presenters: 

  • Mike Nolan, President, Automatic Identification Systems (AIS)
  • Rikki Jennings, Chief Nursing Informatics Officer, Zebra Technologies
  • Peter Casady, CEO, Champion Healthcare Technologies

The Scanning Imperative – Improving Patient Safety and Reducing Costs

June 13 | 1pm-2pm CT

Sign up here and use "ahrmmscanning" at checkout to waive registration fees.

Please join us for a webinar hosted by AHRMM and in collaboration with Zebra Technologies and AIDC. This is part 1 in a series of 3 webinars.

Webinar Overview

Learning Objectives

  • Define the terminology associated with UDI
  • List the characteristics of barcode scanning including speed, accuracy, timeliness of data and subsequent uses
  • Discuss the benefits and associated efficiencies with scanning the UDI

Management of inventory turns, reducing waste due to product expiration and reducing annual audit shortfalls are all possible thanks to the UDI barcode. Although scanning is a common practice throughout hospitals today with pharmaceuticals/patient identification, it’s brand new for implants and other devices. Many health systems are still typing device identifiers into their EHR systems for implants.This is a dangerous practice due to the known potential for human error.

In the first of three webinars, leading field experts will focus on the immense benefits of using scanning technology to document medical device usage. UDI scans can improve patient safety through recall and expiration date management, reduce clinical time spent documenting product use and ultimately help hospitals reduce costs each year.

Peter Casady, Champion's CEO and Cofounder will also be co-leading a Learning Lab with James Phillips from FMOL on Monday, July 29 at 10am:

The Benefits and Practice of Tracking Implants Leveraging UDI 

We would like fellow providers to understand the benefits that effective implant tracking can have on cost, quality and outcomes. Specifically, these benefits include opportunities to reduce cost through reductions in waste, optimization of inventory levels, and minimization of clinical variability. Tracking also allow hospitals to improve quality by preventing usage of expired and recalled implants. Finally, effective tracking lays the groundwork for improving outcomes by linking specific implants to patient outcomes and allowing hospitals to recognize which implants are more effective than others. While tracking implants provides clear and impactful benefits, we recognize there exist significant challenges to tracking implants in practice due to significant variability in implant labeling. We will summarize these challenges, and present best practices to overcoming them, with a focus on a leading health system’s journey to better manage their implants.
