I challenged my staff yesterday with 'Operation Anitbacterial Wipes' and asked them all to buy them at their grocery store if they could find them over the weekend and bring in their receipt for reimbursement! :)
Deb Bartel
20:38
only in some instances - telehealth is NOT going to work in all instances but patients may not agree
Warren Johnson - Scribe-X / Med-X
22:18
Deb.. can you expand on your thoughts?
shelleybrown
22:36
Which grocery store have anitibacterial wipes or soaps? I cannot find any.
Sunny Lucich
23:05
amazon has bleach and cavicloths(?) charging an arm and a leg
Deb Bartel
23:21
telehealth is great for some, maybe many things but you can't treat a patient over time without actually seeing them, taking a BP, weight, height etc. Also need labs - can't send a phlebotomist to their house though they'd probably like it....
Deb Bartel
25:07
some personal wearables could help with some of this but most providers still want to physically see their patients at least occasionally
Deb Bartel
32:43
we must get patients and employers involved in making insurance companies change - we are a COST, patients and employers are REVENUE
Jonathan Shorter
34:15
Was the announcement by BCBS Tennessee making telemed coverage permanent already mentioned?
Jonathan Shorter
34:31
Sorry, I was late.
Jonathan Shorter
35:03
The question relates to reimbursement.
Jonathan Shorter
35:10
at this point.
Deb Bartel
35:25

Is there a specific new job skill of managing remote employees?
Deb Bartel
41:01
mark Fraser absolutely
Deb Bartel
41:57
Warren I agree but some of the things needing to be changed are controlled by NON healthcare people.....makes it harder but not impossible
Deb Bartel
43:07
I'll scare you all - Soilent Green happened in 2022!!!
Jeff Baird
44:05
It is too bad that the leaders of this country do not believe the upper right quadrant...
Jonathan Shorter
53:39

Sorry what is NPS?
Jonathan Shorter
58:00
Interesting. I thought that the whole open floorplan was considered a failure!
Deb Bartel
58:47
the open floor plan cannot work in healthcare. HIPAA!!!
Deb Bartel
58:53
will we repeal hipaa?
Jonathan Shorter
59:13
Facemask = private?!
Deb Bartel

I am an employee of Jill...Who is the most amazing and considerate boss I have ever worked for...I appreciate being able to work from home...
Jonathan Shorter
01:04:05
She's pretty great!
aheiber
01:04:08
it cant go to full open office concept. it can be done on a smaller scale and square footage will probably be less but you rethink the reception and what and how the treatment rooms can and should do.
Jill Arena
01:04:17
Thanks, Robyn! Glad you’re here….and a stellar part of our team.
rcooper
01:08:06

LISA WHITLOCK

Jeff..what is that site?
Deb Bartel
01:19:06

Warren Johnson - Scribe-X / Med-X
01:20:43

Our GI docs said it was definitely an issue.
Stephanie Confer

Precision Images also does signage and barriers. They are quick and seem to be less expensive
Deb Bartel
01:32:21

Jonathan Shorter
01:37:07

Nita Bogardus

What about entities that applied for and received PPP funds but never had a down turn in revenue or staffing?
Jonathan Shorter
01:45:29
All two of them? :)
Deb Bartel
01:46:00
I thought the PPP money that is actually forgiven doesn't get taxed, either....only the dollars you don't have forgiven....is this correct?
Deb Bartel
01:47:56
PPP FFCRA question - if a 100k+ person ends up making less than 100k because they took time off using FFCRA hours is there a true up at the end of the year to have a bit more forgiven?
Jeff Baird
01:55:44
Are employee bonus forgivable? Thinking about paying bonuses to those remaining and working through the mess.
Jonathan Shorter
01:55:56
Great question Jeff.
Sarah Edson
01:56:11
As long as they don't make more than $100,000
Deb Bartel
01:56:46
exactly just watch for the 100k
Lauren Harris

47. Question: An SBA interim final rule posted on May 8, 2020 provided that any borrower who applied for a PPP loan and repays the loan in full by May 14, 2020 will be deemed by SBA to have made the required certification concerning the necessity of the loan request in good faith. Is it possible for a borrower to obtain an extension of the May 14, 2020 repayment date?For purposes of this safe harbor, a borrower must include its affiliates to the extent required under the interim final rule on affiliates, 85 FR 20817 (April 15, 2020).As of May 13, 2020Answer: Yes, SBA is extending the repayment date for this safe harbor to May 18, 2020, to give borrowers an opportunity to review and consider FAQ #46. Borrowers do not need to apply for this extension. This extension will be promptly implemented through a revision to the SBA’s interim final rule providing the safe harbor.21
Deb Bartel

Staff engagement and keeping morale up is top on our list. Hearing about what others are doing would be great. Remote work is very different for ALL of us at our office and feeling disconnected is hard.
