    Behavioral Health Compliance: Making It Easy for Providers and Agencies

    in Psychology

    HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus,  PCI regulations - these are words that can strike fear into the heart of any Behavioral Health organization.  They don't need to as we found after speaking with our guest today on Mental Health News Radio.  We sat down with Marc Haskelson, the President and CEO of Compliancy Group, to find out how easy compliance can be.


    Read the full article HERE.


    What is the difference between HIPAA and Meaningful  Use (MU) ?


    Do I have to attest for Meaningful Use?  What If I don’t attest?


    Who is considered a Vendor or a Business Associate?


    I am now accepting Medicare, does that put me at a higher risk for an audit just like everyone else?


    If I completed a Risk Assessment last year, do I have to do it again this year?


    Is there an insurance policy available that helps an entity with HIPAA  fines?


    What triggers an audit?  How do they know that they should audit you?


    Has your software solution ever been involved where an actual audit was being done by either CMS or OCR?


    If an EHR vendor or billing agency, as an example, are not following HIPAA compliance where can one go to report these actions?

    Is Talking About Race & Racism Preventing Healing In America?

    in Current Events

    Are we living in a post racial America? Some Americans believe that, yes, we are and that some individuals who seek attention continue to use race and racism as a means for getting it. While others believe that harmful systemic racism and subconscious bias persists and the only way to eliminate them for good is to shine a bright light on them. 


    In this Episode of Race Haven Scott Speed is joined by guests Denny Faircloth and Dr. Osvaldo Gaytan. Scott (African American from Philadelphia, PA) and Denny (European American from Augusta, Georgia) will dialogue about this topic from two very different perspectives. Dr. Osvaldo (Psychiatrist) will join them to provide the social behavioral context to this dialogue.

    The Holy Spirit’s Curriculum: A Course in Miracles with Robert Rosenthal, M.D.

    in Spirituality

    Join Dr. Bob and Char as we explore Chapter 12, The Holy Spirit’s Curriculum, with an emphasis on Section VIII: The Attraction of Love for Love. In our last segment we discussed how we all have a degree of understanding that the world is an illusion, and today we’ll explore some deeper concepts about what love is for, what’s visible and invisible in the real world, and how our beliefs allow us to see and perceive what is not real, rendering the Truth invisible and seemingly beyond our perceptual grasp.


    Preparation: Chapter 12


    These segments are presented in Virtual Class format. Dr. Bob will give a brief discourse and after some discussion, listeners are invited to call in with their questions. To participate, dial (347) 934-0751 and Press 1.


    A student of the Course since before it was published, Dr. Bob was a close personal friend of Bill Thetford, Ph.D. (Co-Scribe of ACIM) and has served on the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Inner Peace, publisher of the Course, since 1992. He is a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice near Princeton, New Jersey and authored From Plagues to Miracles: The Transformational Journey of Exodus, From the Slavery of Ego to the Promised Land of Spirit. The book interprets the Biblical story of Exodus as it pertains to the workings of the ego.

    Black Geek Movie Talk: Regression

    in Movies

    This week we review "Regression" starring Ethan Hawke, Emma Watson, and David Thewlis.  Within the context of 80's hysteria over satanic cults, a detective (Hawke) and psychiatrist (Thewlis) investigate the rape of a young woman (Watson) in the Midwest.   "Regression" was directed by Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar whose 2001 flick "The Others" was probably underrated by most critics and movie-goers.  Amenábar is also responsible for "Abre Los Ojos", the trippy, existential screenplay Cameron Crowe adapted into "Vanilla Sky".  Tune in today at 1:30 PM PST to find out if this is a must-see or must-skip.

    Living with MST Brain Lewis

    in Military

    Brian enlisted in the Navy in 1997, attended initial training schools, and advanced to the rank of Fire Control Technician Third Class. During his tour on the USS Frank Cable (AS-40), a superior non-commissioned officer sexually assaulted him in August 2000. He was ordered by his command not to pursue a report of this crime with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. After this crime, Brian was misdiagnosed with a Personality Disorder by a Naval psychiatrist and discharged by his command in August 2001. He received a disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs in June 2002 for his post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from the military sexual trauma. Brian’s petition to change his discharge from a general discharge for a personality disorder to a medical retirement for post-traumatic stress disorder was denied by the Board for Correction of Naval Records in August 2004.


    Brian holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Anne Arundel Community College, a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Stevenson University, and a Master of Science in Forensic Studies from Stevenson University in December 2013. His master’s thesis was written on military sexual trauma and nominated for publication in the Stevenson Forensics Journal.


    Brian is currently a second year student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota where he is pursuing a joint JD/MPA program and serves as Treasurer of the Mitchell Hamline Veterans Association.


    He hopes to continue serving by litigating and continuing to advocate for veterans and military sexual trauma survivors.
