                Winter Webinar with Sammy

                Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 7PM EST

                Hosted by Ken Katz and Barbara Buffolino

                  Topics:

                  As we all get ready to enter the Holiday Season, let’s not forget some important things we need to do in prep for 2020. Join Ken on this Winter Webinar to learn more about the following topics:

                  • Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 no longer HIPAA compliant after mid-January. What do we do?
                    Don’t know what to do? Ken will give you step by step instructions including picking out the computer(s) to order.
                  • The MOVE to the Cloud. We listen to our clients. Many of you don’t want to go there. Ken will discuss the ins and outs and maybe some of you have good reasons for thinking as you do. There’s always a way if you look for it. Find out why and how.
                  • MIPS 2019 – Let’s Finish The Year. Many of you do not have to report MIPS at all because of the amount of Medicare claims or if you are in an ACO/APM. Some can if you want to. However, the rest of you need to report MIPS or you are looking at a 7% penalty for ignoring it. If you need to report, you need to get the Promoting Interoperability Hardship Exception. If you do not get the exception you could end up with a PENALTY. If you don’t know, you need to attend this webinar.
                  • Best Way To Cook Your Turkey. At the end of the webinar, Ken will give you his famous Turkey recipe. (Yes, he’ll do anything to get your attention regarding the above)

                      Join our webinar to learn about the changes in MIPS and participation for 2019.

                      Click here to check your participation status! You’ll need your individual NPI to check.

                      Please note: The criteria to receive a positive payment adjustment for MIPS has changed (for the better!) When you check your participation status, it will display if you are eligible to report MIPS. It will also display if you can “opt in” and receive a positive payment adjustment if you are not deemed eligible.

                      If you are eligible to report or choose to “opt-in”, sign up for the registry if you haven’t already by clicking on Utilities –> Account Management –> Registry Account.

                      The webinar will be followed by live Q&A
