The Association for Utah Community Health’s (AUCH) annual Primary Care Conference provides Health Center staff and board members an opportunity to discover innovative strategies and promising practices to improve healthcare delivery.

The Annual Primary Conference is two days of breakout sessions tailored to meet the training needs of all Health Center staff; from front desk staff to board members. Professionals at the top of their fields share best practices in clinical, operations, administration, behavioral health, and staff wellness with over 200 Health Center staff from around the state.

While the event is a great occasion for you to network and learn, it is also a time to celebrate health center staff achievements. The AUCHIE Awards celebrate Health Center and Board of Directors who go “above and beyond” to ensure the success of their Health Center.

Billing Boot Camp

Billing Boot Camp will offer a comprehensive walk-through of the essential Federally Qualified Health Center billing concepts. The course serves as a concise learning opportunity for newer Health Center staff, and an effective checkup for tenured billers needing to stay abreast of changes in requirements essential to their practice’s claims. We will shine a light on areas of particular interest including Chronic Care Management and Preventative Services, as well as the need for high-quality documentation in support of your claims. Pre-session will include time for learning labs, coding example encounters, and your questions. Certificate awarded upon completion of training.

Behavioral Health Consultant Training Boot Camp

Cherokee Health Systems' Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) Training Academy is designed specifically for licensed behavioral health providers who work or plan to work in an integrated care setting. This training will provide didactic trainings, observational experiences, and skill rehearsal opportunities to develop and refine clinical skills and competencies for practice in the primary care setting.

HIPAA Privacy and Security Officer Boot Camp

Every healthcare organization is required to have someone officially designated to serve as the organization's HIPAA Security Officer and HIPAA Privacy Officer. These roles cannot be successfully executed without training and HealthInsight's HIPAA Privacy and Security Officer Boot Camp is the best solution.
