DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education

leader ProEdTech, will host a 180-minute live webinar titled "EMTALA Regulations & Compliance Virtual Boot Camp" by Joseph P. McMenamin on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

A CMS investigation on EMTALA (Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act) compliance can have ED (Emergency Department) personnel of hospitals break out in a cold sweat, and understandably so. EMTALA violations can have severe consequences, including civil monetary penalties and, in severe cases, exclusion from Medicare. Also known as "Patient Anti-Dumping" law, the federal statute is clear in its intent: prevent Medicare-participating hospitals with dedicated emergency departments from refusing to treat people based on their insurance status or ability to pay. But EMTALA regulations are ambiguous in their application, and their interpretations have led to some surprising ramifications. In order to avoid investigations and costly fines, it is important to follow the federal law on EMTALA.

Join EMTALA compliance expert Joseph P. McMenamin in this information-packed webinar as he equips attendees with a working knowledge of EMTALA regulations to help bolster compliance efforts. McMenamin will walk the attendees through what they need to know about emergency medical conditions, screening, stabilization, transfer, enforcement, defenses, penalties, regulatory taking, and anti-retaliation principles. He will analyze the case law that interprets and/or bolsters EMTALA, and provide insight into how the legislation has been applied in the real world. He will also explore how the federal legislation arose; when it applies; what it requires; what it does not require; how it has been interpreted; what it permits; how to comply, and what happens if someone doesn't comply.

After attending this webinar, attendees will be able to assess how EMTALA applies to healthcare facility, identify current noncompliant practices, and bring them into conformity with the law. This webinar will get the attendees current with how the EMTALA law is evolving, as well as the compliance pitfalls that must be avoided.
