Product Description

Develop your strategy to survive in an era of post acute care accountability.

With increasing frequency, legislature is looking to post acute care as means of cutting costs for care.  The reason is simple: Post acute care now represents $45 billion annually for Medicare. Now legislation and regulations are being considered that will make post acute provider "accountable" for the care delivered. Plans are underway to deny payment to acute care for the avoidable readmits from acute care.  This will have a significant impact on you as a post acute provider. PLUS: Physician, acute care providers and post acute care services may be linked through a one payment system. This “bundling” is the most dramatic change in payment systems to occur in the past 30 years and the ramifications for post acute care providers are enormous.
Join expert Frances J. Fowler, FAAHC for this 1-hour audio conference where you can learn to leverage these changes to your advantage, examine the time lines that you're up against and build the confidence that you need to drive forward to become a preferred provider of post acute care.
