Possible HHS-Driven Changes After Failed Repeal of ACA

April 11th, 2017 by Kareo

Come join us at the next #KareoChat on Thursday, April 13 at 9 AM PT, hosted by @drtom_kareo to guide us through a conversation about what changes Health and Human Services (HHS) could still have in store for healthcare policies, even after the failed repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Participants will discuss what patients and providers can expect as the ACA changes under HHS rule and the Trump administration, and how these changes will shape the future and direction of healthcare.

Here are the chat questions to help you prepare your thoughts and join the conversation.

  1. What power does HHS have to adjust ACA rules and drive changes?
  2. What are the stated areas of change by HSS?
  3. What will be the impact of these changes to exchanges?
  4. What will be the impact of these changes to the consumer?
  5. What will be the impact of these changes to the provider?

Bring your questions, post them to #KareoChat ahead of time, or tweet them to the host @drtom_kareo and @GoKareo. Hope to see you there!

Join #KareoChat on ICD-10 and the Solo MD

September 15th, 2015 by Kareo


Join @GoKareo and @HealthITAdvice for a #KareoChat on ICD-10 and the Solo MD this Thursday, September 17 at 9:00 AM PT.

As a resource for research and review on EHR software, Software Advice speaks with medical practices every day about their needs and concerns. We’ve been noticing solo-physician practices in particular routinely tell us they worry about the ICD-10 transition and whether they’ll be equipped to handle it without major interruptions to their workflow or operating   expenses.

For this reason, we decided to gear our ICD-10 guide to the solo physician. We’re hoping to help solo practitioners by giving them actionable guidance for a smooth transition, reaching practices across the country who may not be able to make it to in-person training sessions or search for webinars online, but would greatly benefit from the information shared by the experts and physicians we interviewed.

Curious to know what we will be chatting about, check out this weeks questions below:

Q1: Why is it important to focus an eBook on the solo MD’s ICD-10 experience?

Q2: 71% of solo MDs surveyed haven’t prepared for potential $ loss from ICD-10. What steps should they take?

Q3: Only ½ of those surveyed have developed an ICD-10 staff training plan. How might their workflow be impacted?

Q4: What HealthIT tools and resources should solo MDs utilize to ease their ICD-10 transition?

Q5: Whether a solo practice uses 3rd party or in-house, what questions should they be asking billing partners?

Q6: On a lighter note, what will be the greatest benefits of ICD-10?

Looking to find more tips and tools to help your single-doctor practice achieve a stress-free code set conversion to ICD-10, well we’ve gotcha covered with this  downloadable ebook: http://www.softwareadvice.com/medical/icd-10-guide-for-solo-mds/

Hope to see you this week on #KareoChat!
