A Comprehensive Review Of The Provider-Based Rule (PBR) By Duane Abbey

Hospitals are making efforts to establish provider-based clinics of all types. The provider-based rule (PBR) is quite complex and confusing, and there are definite ambiguities that make it a challenging task.  

Join this informative 90-minute session with Duane Abbey, Ph.D.  to know about the advantages of provider-based clinics to hospitals, the role of the hospitals to establish provider-based clinics, various ambiguities in the provider-based rule (PBR), the art of selecting criteria and meeting the demand to establish a provider-based clinic; and to brace up for the upcoming challenges..
