In the first Homecare Roundtable episode, Eric Scharber of Exact Recruiting and Nick Seabrook of BlackTree Healthcare Consulting join Tripp for a 'friendly' conversation.  The Homecare Roundtable will be a monthly episode featuring a rotating cast of characters that are friends as well as colleagues. 

This conversation is about the happenings at the recent NHPCO and VNAA conferences, a discussion about how Homecare agencies are preparing for some of Medicare's new Alternate Payment Models; how agencies are trying to figure out the staffing models for these new APM's, a brief discussion about Chronic Care Management, and also about some of Curaport's Vendor Corner vendors and upcoming webinars.

Episode 5: Exclusion Screening

  •   Tripp Matthews, Ashley Hudson, Erin Archer

In this very educational episode, Erin Archer of Exclusion Screening, LLC and Ashley Hudson of Liles Parker PLLC educate me on Exclusion Screening - both the company and the Requirement. We discuss the difference between Exclusion Screening and a background check; what constitutes an exclusion; the perils of employing an excluded individual; and which individuals should be screened.

This conversation is a great primer for the webinar scheduled for late June, which will be led by these two attorneys.

This engagement was so informative that we are going to add this as a monthly podcast episode entitled "Legally Blonde" which will cover all aspects of Legal matters throughout the healthcare industry.
