NCDs, LCDs, and Coverage Analysis Webinar Hosted by Bio-Optronics

“All other Medicare rules apply”—that’s the information you’ll find in the fine print of Medicare’s Clinical Trial Policy (also known as NCD 310.1). National and Local Coverage Determinations (NCDs and LCDs) are important Medicare coverage policies that fall into this category, and items frequently required by protocols—such as EKGs, lipid panels, and imaging tests—have such determinations. This webinar will provide tips on how to interpret and comply with these policies, and will provide examples of common challenges in this area of coverage analysis.

Webinar: Best Practices for Effective PI Compensation

As research funds are becoming increasingly competitive, a frequent question asked is, “How much should we pay investigators for their work on a clinical trial and what methodology should be used?”. While the question may seem straightforward, it is far more complex and potentially volatile under the surface. The amount and the method by which you use to pay investigators can play a big role in the success, or lack thereof, of your site.

Join PFS Clinical’s Director of Site Strategy, David B. Russell, for a free, educational webinar on PI Compensation. During this webinar, David will discuss the regulation considerations when setting compensation amounts, the pros and cons of different PI compensation models, and investigator agreement considerations.

Specific areas that will be covered include:

  • Pros and cons of different PI payment models
  • Investigator agreement considerations
  • Considerations for compliant documentation

Webinar: "Simplifying Investigator Initiated Trials: Administrative and Technological Tips for Successful Submission and Compliance"

Within the past 2 years, interest in investigator-initiated clinical trials has increased greatly. The additional proof of practice and clinical application data that these types of trials provide have allowed for the transition of many newly approved therapies to standard practice.

While research offices are doing their best to support these endeavors, the additional administrative responsibilities involved are often unfamiliar, as they are normally taken on by industry sponsors and outside governmental agencies, including the new “final rule” requirements.

Join Velos and PFS Clinical for an informative, no-cost webinar on investigator-initiated trials and the "final rule" requirements on Thursday, September 14 at 12:00 PM CST. Besides getting tips and models for meeting requirements, learn how technology can help you develop protocols, observe compliance, and simplify submissions to clinicaltrials.gov.

Webinar: The Fundamentals of Compliant Research Billing

Billing compliance is a crucial aspect of any organization that conducts clinical trials. Nonetheless, understanding and applying reimbursement guidelines is one of the most challenging aspects of research.

These tasks are not only time consuming, but can lead to errors that are costly and could impact your organization’s Medicare standing. Join Senior Clinical Research Analysts Liz Christianson and Nicole Bruecker for a complimentary webinar during which you will learn:

  • The basics of billing compliance and why it is necessary
  • How to create a coverage analysis to achieve and document billing compliance

While research offices are doing their best to support these endeavors, the additional administrative responsibilities involved are often unfamiliar, as they are normally taken on by industry sponsors and outside governmental agencies. Consequently, mistakes made during the initial development and start-up stages of these trials are causing institutions significant financial and compliance-related ramifications.
