Product Description

See what MS-DRGs really mean for your hospital’s bottom line.

Still stunned by the onset of MS-DRGs last October? Considering this was the biggest change to Medicare’s Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) since DRGs surfaced 20 years ago, being confident with the new system is going to take time and effort. For instance, even if the physicians and other providers did all the right things, if your documentation and coding doesn’t communicate that, you’re just back at square one. But you don’t have to follow the IPPS in survival mode playing guessing games.
Join expert speaker Thomas Sadauskas, FHFMA, FACHE, CPA, as he discusses what you really need to know about MS-DRGs and how they affect your facility’s bottom line. You’ll walk away knowing what you need to change in your coding, documentation and even operations to make sure there’s no adverse effect on your reimbursement.
