Are You Covered for “Moonlighting”?

— Kathleen Finnerty-Schroth, CIC

Physicians employed by large healthcare delivery systems are typically not covered for professional services provided outside of the hospital or employer’s network.

PIAM Sponsors “Stop the Bleed” CME Program

PIAM recently provided funds for the purchase of tourniquets used in the “Bleeding Control for the Injured /Stop the Bleed” program presented at the Massachusetts Medical Society Annual Meeting. This 45-minute session for clinicians taught hemorrhage control in the field to increase victim survival. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, and it is important to act quickly in these situations. Though all attendees were physicians, not everyone was up to date with the current steps needed to stop the bleeding via tourniquet, and this valuable information can also be shared with others.
