Product Description

Strategies for Managing Your Cost per Case

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) continue to add elements to the value based purchasing measures.  One that applies very closely to the work of case management is the efficiency measure. This measure penalizes hospitals that do not fall within national ranges for length of stay and cost of care for Medicare patients. Your hospital will be compared to all other hospitals in the United States in terms of your spending per Medicare beneficiary.  Never has cost containment and length of stay been more critical than with this new measure. This 60-minute power-packed live audio conference by Toni G. Cesta, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, will update you about the new CMS efficiency measure, how to implement it to your practice and make the most of it.
