Genius Solutions hosting ICD-10 Conference Calls 10/6/2015 and 10/9/2015

Posted: Wednesday September 30 2015 @ 9:13am

Category: Main

Genius Solutions is planning special conference calls after the October 1st ICD-10 deadline to address up-to-the minute news, tips, and resolutions to any ICD-10 issues that our clients are experiencing after the October 1st deadline.

There are two dates scheduled, Tuesday 10/6/2015 and Friday 10/9/2015. Both calls will be at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time.

Both calls are expected to be mostly the same, but emphasis on Tuesday is identifying what problems people are having and how to fix them, while emphasis on Friday is identifying if any updates were made to eTHOMAS because of October 1st issues and when we expect them to be available or how to get them.

*********************************************************************

A few minutes before 10:00 on Tuesday 10/6/2015 or Thursday 10/9/2015 you may call the FreeConference main number at 1-712-432-3100 and use Conference Code: 478288. Please note, it sometimes takes up to a minute to ring through and get prompted for the conference number.

If at the time of the Conference Call you can't possibly get in on the main number, then you should check this page to see if we have an alternate number.

*********************************************************************

We plan to also host a "Webinar" at the same time, so if you have high speed Internet you may also be able to watch Genius' computer screen while you listen to the phone call.

To join the webinar you will need to register at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1168448077852695553 as soon as possible for the Tuesday 10/6/2015 session, and https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6266948367036077825 for the Friday session on 10/9/2015

After you register, a link will be emailed to you. This link is used to join the webinar at 10:00 a.m. We recommend trying to join the webinar about 10 minutes before the webinar is scheduled.

The webinar does not play the audio, you still need to dial into the conference call phone number from your phone.

Even if you do not have high speed internet, or can't get the webinar to work on your computer, you can still hear the audio portion with the Dial-In Conference Number, just as all the previous conference calls have worked.

*********************************************************************

As usual, we will try to record the conference for those who can not attend in person and make it available on this News Page a couple of days later.
