Maria Todd  to present at the Opal Events conference,  "Hospital Revenue Cycle Management in the Era of "Affordable Care in San Diego | Physician Reimbursement Improvement | Scoop.it

Maria Todd has accepted an invitation  to present at the Opal Events conference,

"Hospital Revenue Cycle Management in the Era of "Affordable Care: Practical Strategies for Embracing ACOs, ICD-10, EHRs & More...Plus a Bulletproof Audit Prep Plan."  She will present two sessions.

 

Her first panel presentation,   "Healthcare Reform and Its Coming Effects on Healthcare Revenue Cycle"  covers the coming changes in healthcare and how panelists predict it will effect the hospital revenue cycle.  Todd's session, titled, "Mind Your Dollars: Innovative Revenue Strategies for Success Under Reform" will send attendees home with a list of options to maximize opportunities under PPACA, CDHC programs, and group health benefit redesign to create innovative alternate revenue strategies and reduce dependence on government reimbursement sources.

 

Her second panel presentation will cover  "Practitioner / Executive Panel Discussion on Partnering: How to Deal with the Next Generation of Healthcare; ACOs" .

 

The objective of the panel group is to cover practical strategies for value-based purchasing, using accountable care principals for long-term clinical re-engineering, and refocusing on performance and incentive-based reimbursement.   Todd's session, titled "Physician Alignment and Integration Challenges for Healthcare Provider Networks" will cover quality assurance, case management, customer expectations and continuity of care coordination to help attendees understand needed infrastructure when designing networks and building innovative contracting and reimbursement strategies. She'll also address what's needed for deals that include bundled payments and/or capitation.

 

Todd will feature tips included in her upcoming book, Physician Alignment & Integration: IPAs, PHOs, MSOs, ACOs ... and Beyond, which will release later in 2012 through Productivity Press.  She is the renowned author of 11 other titles in healthcare administration, and an award willing international speaker and key opinion leader on healthcare administration, revenue cycle and medical tourism program development.

17 Ways to Integrate Facebook and Email Marketing | Physician Reimbursement Improvement | Scoop.it

The blog post summarizes how to align email and facebook integration, plus offers some thoughts on how to think about metrics:

 

There are several areas of overlap here, but perhaps the most illustrative is the fact that the metrics used to measure both tactics are mathematically quite similar, even if we call them different names:
Email subscribes = Facebook “Likes”
Email unsubscribes = Facebook “UnLikes”
Email opens = Facebook impressions
Email clicks = Facebook feedback
Email forwards = Facebook shares

SNOMED-CT | ICD9 to ICD-10 Mapping Answers

SNOMED-CT | ICD9 to ICD-10 Mapping Answers | Physician Reimbursement Improvement | Scoop.it

What is SNOMED-CT?

 

SNOMED-CT stands for Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine–Clinical Terms. It is a comprehensive clinical terminology that provides clinical content and expressivity for clinical documentation and reporting. It can be used to code, retrieve, and analyze clinical data. Software applications utilize SNOMED concepts, hierarchies, and relationships as a common reference point for data analysis.

 

How does SNOMED work?

SNOMED codes are currently mapped to electronic ICD-9 data.

The mappings between ICD-10 and SNOMED -CT are currently underway and are set for initial release in early 2011. The new mappings will need to be integrated into Electronic Health Records where applicable.

 

AskMariaTodd for assistance today. We'll help you with physician training and documentation techniques necessary to meet the increased specificity necessary under ICD-10.  800-209-7263.  Both web-based and onsite training are available.
