PHYSICIAN OF THE MONTH
Simon Grinshteyn, M.D.
Inpatient Specialists of Southwest Florida
Congratulations to Simon Grinshteyn, MD, for being
chosen LMHS Physician of the Month for March. Dr. Grinshteyn has been on staff
at LMHS since October, 2014 and has so impressed the CPCU Unit at HPMC since
that time that they nominated him for this award, saying “...he is compassionate
and has a great sense of humor,” “...is one of the best doctors I’ve worked
with—kind, gentle, and yet firm when needed. He is quick to return calls and his
patients rave about him.” “..takes extra time with patients and families to meet
all of their needs. Always professional in dress and manner (great bow ties)…”
“Always speaks with the nurses on the unit regarding the patients which promotes
employee and patient satisfaction.” Lee Memorial Health System recognizes Dr.
Grinshteyn for his positive qualities of excellence.
ICD-10 Required Provider Training 2015
The MEC's have
approved the ICD-10 mandatory education requirement for all
credentialed providers actively providing care in a LMHS
facility. ICD-10 is a significant hurdle for the healthcare
industry with different implications for the Ambulatory and
Inpatient settings. To prepare for the change, LMHS is
providing free ICD-10 education for all active credentialed
providers. On-line training can be accessed from any
computer, laptop or tablet with an Internet connection from
the following website:
www.healthstream.com/hlc/leealthstream.com/hlc/lee . You will use your 5 digit
Provider # i.e. - 01234 for both your ID and Password for
All training completed last year will be honored but we
encourage you to repeat the training as a refresher.
For instructions on how to access ICD-10 training, please

New approach to license renewal
The Department of Health, Division of Medical Quality Assurance,
will now review your continuing education (CE) records in an electronic tracking
system at the time of renewal. It will happen automatically when you renew your
license, but it is important that you understand how this simple change will
affect the way you renew your license in the future.
If the practitioner's continuing education records are complete, they will be
able to renew their license without interruption.
If the practitioner's continuing education records are not complete, they will
be prompted to enter their remaining continuing education hours before
proceeding with their license renewal.
