Consumer-driven services in business and the need for efficiency are accelerating changes in the way organizations operate and compete. Many consumers today are taking greater control of their purchasing power and healthcare decisions and are demanding excellence in service. The challenge is how to give them the best service in a meaningful and economic way.

Organizational survival relies on healthcare leaders with the vision, determination and courage to test various methods of enhancing the patient experience.

11:30am – 1:00pm Lunch and ACHE/HFMA Update: What’s NEW!

1:00pm – 2:00pm Worksheet S-10 is Here to Stay: A Look at MAC S-10 Audits

With the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approving a new, five-year Medicaid 1115 Transformation Waiver, Texas hospitals’ Uncompensated Care funding will be based on a new methodology using uninsured charity care costs reported on Worksheet S-10 of the Medicare cost report. Additionally, Worksheet S-10 is also being used to determine and distribute Medicare DSH uncompensated care pool payments and could potentially determine 340B Program qualification as proposed in multiple pieces of legislation. The accuracy of Worksheet S-10 reporting has never been more essential to hospitals because this data source is now driving billions in provider reimbursement and for the first time, has undergone extensive MAC audits. With all of this in mind, hospitals must not only take a renewed look at how Uncompensated Care costs are calculated and documented to qualify for their share of Medicaid supplemental payments and/or Medicare DSH UC payments, but also verify their S-10 reporting is accurate and can withstand all MAC audit requirements.

Speaker: Jeff Norman

Speaker: Kyle Pennington

2:00pm – 2:15pm Break

2:15pm – 3:45pm Panel Discussion: Leading Information Safety: Planning for Data Privacy and Security

Information technology is increasingly a part of every aspect of the healthcare industry. While more organizations are implementing electronic health records (EHR), health information exchanges (HIE), or computerized physician order entry systems (CPOE), patients remain concerned about the privacy and security of their information.

Most healthcare organizations have at least implemented electronic financial records, and these need to be protected just as much. In addition, legal requirements, such as HIPAA, impact what information organizations must keep secure and how it should be done. Healthcare executives are asked to lead the way in security initiatives without knowing where technology will lead us in the coming years, while obtaining the buy-in and trust of staff, patients and the community.

Moderator: Julie Rennecker, PhD, Healthcare Industry Advisor, Cybersecurity
