The University of Rochester Medical Center Compliance Office welcomes the involvement of key governmental leaders and health care experts at its 15th Annual Health Care Compliance Conference. All of our speakers will explore aspects of the growing impact of government measures designed to monitor institutions for accurate billing, effective use of information technology and successful transition toward coordinated patient care.
Informational updates will be presented by governmental decision makers from the Department of Justice, Western District of New York – William Hochul, U.S. Attorney, and Gretchen Wylegala, Assistant U.S. Attorney; the New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General – James Cox, Medicaid Inspector General; and the New York State Medicaid Fraud Control Unit – Gary Baldauf, Buffalo Regional Director. These speakers plan to offer their perspective on current and upcoming initiatives as well as key investigative areas.
Steven Goldstein, President and CEO of Strong Memorial Hospital and Highland Hospital will return to focus on the current and future challenges institutions face as health care reform continues to be phased in.
Additional conference sessions will concentrate on current compliance and risk assessment hot topics including:
- Meaningful Use risks, audits, and compliance
- Focuses and findings of Medicare and Medicaid contractors
- Patient Status and levels of care
- Documentation in support of inpatient billing
This conference is planned so at its conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Assess the impact Federal, State and regional government agency initiatives and programs could have on existing programs that guide overall risk management, compliance activities and/or day-to-day operations.
