WOA Holds Successful "2014 Update on Healthcare Delivery Compliance Course"
Seeing the need for education focused on implementing several significant regulatory changes in optometry in 2014, WOA held a “2014 Update on Healthcare Delivery Compliance Course” on Saturday, February 15 at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI. The number of attendees exceeded expectations, as nearly 200 doctors and their staff participated in this one-day course which featured education on HIPAA compliance, ICD-10 coding, Meaningful Use, and Medical Records compliance, making for five hours full of crucial information that all doctors and their staff need to know in 2014.
Is the Sky Really Falling?
As President–Elect Dr. Eric Paulsen stated in his Jan. 23, 2014 letter to the WOA membership, 2014 is a time for change in optometry. As President of the WOA, I urge you to allow the WOA to keep you and your practice on the straight and narrow. If you would prefer not to read the rest of this article, then the ‘cut to the chase’ is to start protecting yourself and your practice now. One of the best ways, I believe, to start this process is through attendance at the WOA’s 2014 “Update on Healthcare Delivery Compliance” meeting on February 15, 2014 at the Chula Vista resort in Wisconsin Dells.
