Product Description

Protect your emergency department from the EMTALA police.

If you work in an emergency department, you are probably well aware of what "EMTALA" is -- but does your compliance plan measure up to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act's standards? You may think so, but requirements for EMTALA keep evolving. So you must stay on top of what officials target -- and how payers reimburse -- to keep your organization out of hot water.

Join Duane C. Abbey, PhD, CFB, for a fresh look at EMTALA and the nuts and bolts you need for a stellar ED compliance plan. He'll walk you through the law's current definitions and conditions and even discuss what's around the corner as far as your requirements. Plus, by the end of the audioconference, you'll understand special coding and billing requirements related to EMTALA.

Bonus: Anyone from ED physicians and nurses to compliance personnel and coders can benefit from this can't-miss session -- for the price of one.

Here's a sampling of what you'll learn:

  • An EMTALA compliance review: Everyone can use a refresher.
  • Know what counts as an "emergency medical condition" -- and how to translate other legal definitions into plain English.
  • Inside view: Get the skinny on EMTALA's ongoing rule changes.
  • Never been surveyed? Duane will walk you through the EMTALA survey process so you know what to expect and when.
  • 5 Key problem areas you can prevent in your ED ... and how to turn them into strengths.
  • Are your billing practices up-to-snuff? Find out how to bill for NPPs in an ED setting and learn other critical coding tips.
  • Provider-based clinics: What sets you apart for the others and what you need to know about EMTALA.
