If the new "S-DRGs" weren't enough for your inpatient facility to master last year, CMS launched an additional diagnostic related group methodology on Oct. 1 called "MS-DRGs." That means the gap between the different DRGs is narrowing even more -- and optimum reimbursement will be trickier to come by.
But if you join expert speaker Duane Abbey, PhD, CFP, in this teleconference, you will learn valuable operational steps to reduce the financial impact of the new MS-DRGs. In just one hour, Duane will explain everything from why CMS has implemented MS-DRGs to how you should adjust your charging structures and cost reporting for the change.
Who should attend: all personnel involved with coding, billing and reimbursement activities relative to MS-DRGs. Financial analysts, strategic planners, managed care contracting personnel, and compliance personnel, in addition to physicians and medical staff should also attend.
Here's a sampling of what you’ll learn:
