Chronic Disease Education: The Key to Healthcare Organization Success

  •   Webinar
  •   3/24/2017
  •   Ginny Kenyon, RN, MN

Over the last 30 years CMS [Center for Medicaid Medicare] has warned the health care community that Medicare as it was constructed could not survive.  Because of this, there has been increased focus on service delivery options and an increasing emphasis on quality care of the chronic diseases that account for 80% of the expenses for health care insurers. 

One missing link seems to be adequate aide education or lack thereof.  To address this issue, Ginny Kenyon of Kenyon HomeCare Consulting presented this webinar on WHY healthcare organizations need to have Chronic Disease education at the heart of their strategic initiatives, and how they can access and implement this education to their staff and clinicians.

Episode 22: Angelo Spinola - Healthcare Legal Expert

  •   Podcast
  •   2/2/2017
  •   Tripp Matthews, Angelo Spinola

In the first podcast of 2017, Tripp is joined by healthcare legal expert Angelo Spinola of Littler Mendelson, P.C.  Angelo really gets to the heart of some of the recent legal and legislative happenings in the Home Care space – specifically the Overtime Exemption and FLSA regulations.  Very interesting insight into this relatively unknown and often misunderstood law.

The conversation turns more “macro” with an in depth discussion into the new world order of healthcare laws and regulations with a new Presidential administration.  What does he think will be most impacted by Trump’s repeal and replace mantra? 

This podcast will help explain why Spinola is an expert in such high demand – and we are very pleased to partner with him to deliver more education on these and other topics in the near future.
