Product Description

Make your hospital chargemasters work for you!

The coding interface to a hospital’s chargemaster can become quite complex. While the overall goal is to generate a good, clean, complete and accurate claim, the process that places codes and modifiers on the claim form can vary significantly.

If you already have a general understanding of the chargemaster and coding processes, take the next step, and learn how to establish the best coding interfaces for your chargemasters with expert speaker Duane C. Abbey, PhD, CFP.  As examples, he'll pinpoint emergency department, injections/infusions/chemotherapy, interventional radiology, physical /occupational therapy and provider-based clinic chargemasters. You'll walk away with new ideas for optimizing each coding interface -- and the tools to recoup better reimbursement.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Chargemaster nuts & bolts, plus, an overview of CPT and HCPCS coding.
  • The coding interface to the chargemaster: The difference between dynamic coding, static coding and combination or hybrid flows.
  • Systematic approaches you can use to code for outpatient services -- that pay off.
  • Alternative coding interfaces: Which ones are the best for your facility?
  • How to audit the coding interface to the chargemaster, from product to process.
  • Action steps for your hospital that'll beef up your chargemasters.
