Product Description

Think PQRI is too much trouble for your neurology practice? Here’s how you’re hurting your bottom line.

Medicare’s Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) is becoming the hot topic among physician offices, as Medicare moves toward a “pay-for-performance” model. Thanks to the Tax Relief and Healthcare Act of 2006, a lump-sum bonus payment is now available to physicians for tracking and reporting quality care measures on their Medicare patients. And neurologists are eligible for that bonus.

Learn how easy it is to earn a 1.5% bonus for the services your neurology practice is already providing. In this 1-hour teleconference, expert speaker, Alice Reybitz, RN, BA, CPC, CPC-H, will give you all the background information you need to know and provide you with the tools to track and report these items.

Who should attend: Practice administrators, coders, billers, and neurology clinicians.

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

  • Beyond the bonus: Learn what PQRI means for you and why participation is so important.
  • 9 Diagnosis codes that qualify neurologists for this initiative.
  • Why the NPI is such a critical part of PQRI ... and how to obtain it if you haven’t already.
  • Does your office follow-up track to your actions at the hospital? Find out how to monitor each necessary step.
  • Learn documentation requirements you can’t miss ... and easy ways to remember them.
  • Coding tactics revealed: Here's what you need from CPT and ICD-9.
