About the Event

POHMS and NJSOM are excited to invite you to our Virtual Fall Conference.

We have joined forces to deliver an educational agenda with renowned oncology speakers to help our members and corporate sponsors continue to succeed during these uncertain times. This year we have encountered so many challenges. It is through educational programs and the support of our pharmaceutical partners that has enabled us to continue to provide the best quality care to our patients during these unprecedented times.

Join us as we bring you the most current information needed to help you manage your Oncology practice. This year we will focus on what is affecting oncology practices today; the evolving Medicare oncology model, legislative changes, coding and billing, E/M changes for 2021, the update of HIPAA basics, how information blocking rules have changed HIPAA, Harassment in the Workplace and Pandemic Law.
