LEARNING TOGETHER

OPIE Choice Education was created to give you a place to learn and grow that is unlike anything available in the O&P world. The Fundamentals of Excellence Conference is focused on the processes surrounding your insurance verification, prior authorization, and denial management.  FOE is just the beginning of a yearlong journey of continuing education, where we’ll teach you how to put the concepts you learn into perspective, and make them actionable in your practice.

Fundamentals of Excellence Dashboards

Included in your registration to the Fundamental of Excellence conference, you company will get access to two OPIE Business Intelligence Dashboards!

Denial Management Dashboard

This tool generates Coordination of Benefits data that is currently unavailable through OPIE. The workflow it highlights is the period between payment application and the entry of a ‘reason code’. The scope of this dashboard includes the provision of data drill down and export features. This tool allows the user to easily determine which codes are being denied or adjusted (and by how much) and which payers are denying or adjusting which codes.

Verification/Authorization Dashboard

This tool allows you to see your WIP during the beginning of the Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) process. From the initial prescription/demographic data entry through device delivery, you can track the initial insurance verification, detailed code verification, authorization status, financial responsibility and pre-delivery verification statuses.  The tool allows for data drill down and export features for quick actionable item lists and discussions.  It is intended to provide the user with a clear view of how efficiently the workflow moves, where bottlenecks are, and if there are devices at risk of being delivered after insurance termination or after an expired authorization. The Verification/Authorization tool generates insurance data that is currently unavailable through OPIE reports. Your administrative staff and your office manage can utilize this tool daily as a current and prospective workflow management tool.

PRELIMINARY AGENDA

Frequently Asked Questions

How many CEUs will be offered at Fundamentals of Excellence?

Credits will be available at Fundamentals of Excellence and we estimate approximately 6 – 8 business credits, pending ABC approval.

What is the required equipment?

Part of the commitment to this event is that you will use your webcam to participate. OPIE Con is about building in community and we believe that the experience will be reliant on everyone being able to communicate virtually.  

Can multiple participants share a screen?

We recommend one participant per screen. If you have purchased the maximum of 5 registrations per company, additional attendees may shadow the official participant if they share the same role at your practice. Many of the sessions will be specific to the registered participant’s role, therefore it would not be appropriate to have, for example, an owner and a practitioner shadowing the admin for their OPIE Con experience. However, there is no way for us to prevent you from sharing a screen other than discouraging the practice, so we ask the minimum of being courteous to other attendees by having one speaking participant only. 

How do I know if my computer will support Fundamentals of Excellence?

Will OPIE hold in-person events in the future?

Yes.  We believe in the value of community and the relationships that are created when we spend time together.  However, we will continue to evaluate and seek feedback on creating dynamic, engaging educational experiences for our users. 

What is the “Fundamentals of Excellence” Conference?

The O&P profession has a unique set of challenges that our education can help you overcome. This conference is designed specifically to help everyone within an organization understand team dynamics and individual roles to build a high performing, sustainable business. You’ve heard it said that “you don’t know what you don’t know!” Here, we want to help you explore the unknown!

At the Fundamentals of Excellence, we are going to shine a light on some things you didn’t know. It’s an educational event that covers everything from organizational effectiveness audits and effective change process to the full list of key questions to ask to make more effective business decisions.

We give you the knowledge you need, the peer connections to lean on as your implement these ideas and a road-map that leads you through the process and takes out the guesswork.

Who do I contact with questions?

Please contact Aja Dorsey at 800-876-7740 with any questions or concerns.

What should I wear?

Business casual attire. All of our OPIE events are designed to be casual so that you can relax, learn, and collaborate with other O&P professionals.
