Introducing: TMA's Calendar of Doom.
A panel seminar of TMA's Guide to Regulatory Compliance and Economic Survival, presented Oct. 22, 2011. The panel of physician and staff experts moderated by TMA President C. Bruce Malone, MD, discussed new compliance standards affecting physicians and their patients. They include HIPAA 5010 Compliance; ICD-10 Compliance (the complex new medical classification system of 14,400 new billing codes); E-Prescribing and Meaningful Use Incentives/Penalties; Fraud and Abuse/Audits; the Medicare Meltdown and need for SGR formula fix; and some political prognostications.
Between keeping pace with caring for patients, insurance company demands, government regulations, and the latest medical technology, there are never enough hours in a day. That's why TMA developed the Calendar of Doom, a web-based regulatory compliance tool giving you and your staff a big-picture view of upcoming state and federal compliance timelines and key health policy issues that impact Texas physicians.
