Alyssa Thomas 0 1125

ONC is holding a 1-day workshop focused on the use of clinical documentation—as captured by EHRs—in legal, payment, and oversight contexts. The workshop will bring together panels of experts to discuss the current landscape around how EHRs have been used as a record in the legal environment and for purposes such as medical documentation, claims support, audit trail records, and fraud identification.

2016 PCA and HCCN Conference


Alyssa Thomas 0 553

In 2016, while the Afford­able Care Act is nearly fully imple­mented, the Pri­mary Care Asso­ci­a­tions (PCAs) and Health Cen­ter Con­trolled Net­works (HCCNs) are fully engaged in imple­ment­ing a myr­iad of changes to the health care deliv­ery sys­tem.  More­over, PCAs and HCCNs are the energy in their respec­tive states for dri­ving the strate­gic response for Health Cen­ters.  Account­able care oppor­tu­ni­ties and value based care are quickly becom­ing the rule with PCAs and HCCNs lead­ing the way for Health Cen­ters.  This con­fer­ence will focus on the con­cepts, skills and best prac­tice mod­els in the field to assure the pro­gram con­tin­ues to be on the cut­ting edge of the health care deliv­ery sys­tem.

State Pri­mary Care Asso­ci­a­tions (PCAs) are state level trade asso­ci­a­tions that rep­re­sent and pro­vide train­ing and tech­ni­cal assis­tance to health cen­ters in each state.  Cur­rently there are 52 PCAs.  Health Cen­ter Con­trolled Net­works (HCCNs) are groups of health cen­ters that come together to focus on issues rel­a­tive to the back office func­tions they all have – such as imple­ment­ing and main­tain­ing elec­tronic med­ical records or billing.  Some HCCNs are part of a PCA, but most are inde­pen­dent.  Cur­rently there are about 80 HCCNs across the coun­try.

NACHC’s PCA and HCCN con­fer­ence is the only con­fer­ence of its kind specif­i­cally tar­get­ing both state PCAs and HCCNs, with an audi­ence of 200–225 atten­dees from across the coun­try where nearly every state is rep­re­sented.

This con­fer­ence pro­vides those com­pa­nies want­ing to con­nect with the PCA and HCCN audi­ence the oppor­tu­nity to do so through spon­sor­ship.  There is no for­mal EXPO at this con­fer­ence, how­ever, spon­sors are pro­vided a table­top dis­play and are invited to par­tic­i­pate and fully engage in one-on-one inter­ac­tion with this tar­geted audi­ence.  This is a closed con­fer­ence. The ONLY way for a non PCA and HCCN par­tic­i­pants to attend is through one of the lim­ited spon­sor­ship oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able.

For more infor­ma­tion about the con­fer­ence, con­tact Jen­nifer Nolty at 301–347-0400 or jnolty@nachc.com
