2017 AAO Annual Session - Measuring Practice Excellence Through Accounting Expertise


Credits: None available.

Accounting is defined as a “process of identifying, measuring, and communicating financial information to permit informed judgments and decisions”. Using an extensive knowledge of accounting principles and consummate experience in the orthodontic industry, we will inform attendees how to apply this definition to accurately measure their practice’s financial fitness. While each orthodontic practice is unique, the benchmarks for orthodontic accounting are definitive. You will leave this presentation with a greater understanding of these financial standards and will gain the knowledge to make more informed financial decisions in your practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the components of production, collections, and adjustments.
  • Identify the possible distortions in these definitions through an understanding of practice management system nuances.
  • Determine ways to enhance your financial fitness based on the performance of your practice.

2017 AAO Annual Session - HIPAA = Hype Induced Panic and Apathy


Credits: None available.

For many years now HIPAA has been this looming threat on the Practice, so vague and seemingly complicated most Practices, let alone staff, really don’t know where to start – so they don’t. I’d like to share some simple & bite sized practical approaches with you so you can feel confident heading back to the Practice and making headway with them. We’ll be discussing 1) Understanding that HIPAA is a series of steps down a long road, 2) A handful of small, manageable steps along that journey, steps that you'll be comfortable with, 3) If getting Ransomware on one of the practice computers be a HIPAA violation and 4) Common mistakes made with computers that are at odds with HIPAA. I promise to limit the Geek speak and talk about issues in terms we can all understand. I encourage you to bring your own questions to share.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess that HIPAA is what you make of it – and is best to break it into a manageable progression of steps.
  • Deduce that Ransomware presents a risk to the Practice and steps that you can take to manage this.
  • Recognize common mistakes people make with computers that could lead to HIPAA issues and how to avoid them.
