Product Description

Make sense of the 2013 MS-DRG updates and how they will affect you. 

MS-DRGs have been updated, and it’s up to you to learn what’s different for 2013. Don’t forget to overlook what’s new for ICD-9 codes in conjunction with MS-DRGs. Plus, you’ll review the implementation status of ICD-10. That means a lot of new coding and documentation issues, many of which can affect your bottom line. 

Join expert speaker, Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D., CFP, for this vital audio conference that will discuss the readmission reduction and quality reporting. The 3-Day Payment window and hospital acquired conditions continue to be tricky. Adopt these valuable operational steps to reduce the financial impact of the new MS-DRGs.

This session will help you:

  • Define DRGs, MS-DRGs, CCs, MCCs, DRG categories, and DRG groupings.
  • Underline these compliance issues and reports.
  • Answer your questions about the ICD-10 implementation status. 
  • Update your payments, from the standardized amounts to the changes in MS-DRG weights. 
  • Highlight the new MS-DRGs and the associated coding and documentation adjustments. 
  • Go in-depth with quality of care aspects, such as readmission reductions, hospital value-based purchasing, inpatient quality reporting, and hospital acquired conditions.
  • Formulate policy issues, including the 3-Day payment window, ESRD, hospital discharges, and GME cap. 

Ask a question at the Q&A session following the live event and get advice unique to your situation, directly from our expert speaker.
