8/28 - 8am-Noon - Professional Boundaries and Ethical Business Behavior
The most honorable chiropractor sometimes makes errors in business judgment because they didn’t know what they didn’t know. And they can find themselves in a pot of pretty hot water because of it. Did you know that haphazard documentation techniques, for example, can result in an “unprofessional conduct” sanction by a board or payer?
Being a doctor and operating a chiropractic business or being a chiropractic team member in that business holds you to a higher set of standards than many other businesses. Our world is different because healthcare is regulated so differently from other business types, the lines in the sand are drawn with a more stringent stick. There are myriad issues that can come up when professional boundaries are crossed. This can be either an interpersonal boundary or a business ethics one. With the topic being central in most news stories of the day, the subject couldn’t be timelier.
Kathy will outline how business ethics can be compromised with errors in billing, documentation, collections, fees, coding, bartering and unethical financial gain. Leave this session with real-time tools to evaluate your personal situation and to chart a course toward easily managed systems and processes to keep you safe and keep the boundaries clear.
