Last week, I had the pleasure of hosting a webinar with two esteemed experts, Rob Nahoopii and Dr. David Shulkin. Our webinar, “Four Compliance Pitfalls that can Devastate your Hospital’s Margin in 2023,” was a huge success, with many attendees joining us to gain valuable insights on critical compliance areas that could negatively impact their hospital’s margin.
The Honorable Dr. David Shulkin, Ninth Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and former CEO of Atlantic Health System and Beth Israel Medical Center moderated the event, along with Rob Nahoopii, former Director of Pharmacy at Intermountain Healthcare, and myself, a former Chief Nursing Officer at Corewell Health. Over the 60-minute webinar, we discussed several crucial topics that are relevant to the healthcare industry in 2023.
By all accounts, our attendees gained valuable insights on the 2023 healthcare landscape and learned about four compliance pitfalls that could strain margins if not addressed. They also learned about how court decisions in 2022 will impact 340B and IT security in 2023, and what to expect from CMS and the OIG with regards to explanted medical device credits. Additionally, we discussed how defending revenue will be just as critical as growing revenue in 2023, and the rise in Medicare related billing and coding audits.
We were pleased to receive very positive feedback from attendees, who found the webinar to be informative, engaging, and highly useful for their professional development. Many attendees were impressed by the insights shared by our speakers and the actionable steps they provided to mitigate the risks of non-compliance.
In particular, several attendees commented on how helpful it was to learn about the rise in Medicare-related billing and coding audits, and how to proactively address potential issues in this area. Others mentioned how they appreciated the speakers’ clear explanations of complex compliance topics and how it helped them better understand what they need to do to protect their hospital’s margins.
The most impactful portion of the webinar seemed to be Dr. Shulkin’s commentary on the headwinds facing the healthcare industry in the coming year, and how hospitals and healthcare systems can better prepare themselves to face these challenges. We would like to offer our sincere thanks to the highly esteemed doctor for taking the time to moderate the event.
Overall, the webinar was a great success, and we were thrilled to provide valuable insights to our attendees to help them stay ahead of the curve in hospital compliance. If you missed the webinar, we would be happy to provide you with access to a recording of the event, just let us know!
