AAOE – Developing Effective Elements of a Compliance Program Webinar


Angela Miller, CHC and President of Medical Auditing Solutions LCC will be discussing the reason you must have a compliance program, the deadline, and the elements of an effective compliance program.  We will discuss how to make these elements effective.  After the Supreme Court Ruling on Thursday, we know PPACA is here to stay so let’s get started with the compliance program development and it can improve your overall business.

This program was offered at the national AAOE meeting in New Orleans in May 2012; however, due to a funeral I had to cut the program short.  It has take a little bit of time to get this setup, but we are ready to make this available by webinar and will still have 1 hr AAPC credit.  Also keep in mind, you can ask other credentialing organizations if they will consider CEUs for the certification you have.  You will need proof of registration & attendence, this printed out with the learning objectives, and possibly the course material (which may be the materials since they will not be posted on AAOE’s website).  They can only say No.  If you registered for the New Orleans conference, please mention that as there will be no charge to my understanding.  For those of you interested that are not AAOE members or did not attend the Annual Conference, you may still purchase the attendance below.

Please contact AAOE direct about registration at Register Now

This program will be about 1.5 hours in length.

Star 10R Training: Identify Dementia Signs Early & Even Prevent Dementia


Star 10R Training Seminar for Caregivers

We know the sacrifice that Caregivers make for their loved ones. Our organization looks for resources to help providers and caregivers  care for your loved ones. We have met with AFFECTS a Texas based entity that is well known for Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship, and definitely not a traditional company by any means.

We hope you are excited!  Mr. Ray Ashton who is the Founder of this highly progressive company out of Houston is very passionate about his innovative training.  This life long mission was sparked because his grandmother passed away after years of suffering from Dementia.  Read more about Mr. Ashton.  He actually coined the term,  “Preventive Wellness” about 22 years ago.  His healthcare company, STAR Preventive Wellness (AFFECTS LLC), is training the Healthcare professional across the country with main focus on Geriatric and Early Stage Dementia, in particular.  His idea is to train the Communities’ own staff (or individuals) including RN’s, LVN’s and just about anyone who works with Seniors including Case Managers, Administrators or Social Workers. His 8-Hour CEU training is really a must for anyone who works at Memory Care, Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing communities.

They have 2 meetings planned this summer:
Hosuton Class Information
Dementia Education Houston, Texas

One is being planned for the Dallas metroplex for July, with details TBA soon.  A convenient location for those attending is being sought since this is a large metroplex, price and program length will remain the same.  Please contact Star10R  at star-10r-dallas@affects.biz or star@affects.biz  for interest in the Dallas or Houston areas.

 His main goal is to get this knowledge out there. On that note, he has made his programs’ cost close to nothing. He only charges $350 per individual or only $3000 a community to train 10 Cargivers ($300 per community caregiver). Please let me know if you can make this training and feel free to pass this along. This training is also a great marketing tool for communities to differentiate themselves, while reducing cost with no overhead or risks for that matter.  Remember, this does provide 8 CEUs for this class if you attend the entire day.
