At the recent PAUR Boot Camp in Chicago, I once again sat and listened to Dr. Stein and Dr. Salvatore go over one of the most important things they do on a daily basis, in their role as Physician Advisors: rounding at their hospital. I am convinced that this is a key “missing link” to changing the way physicians document, to produce a medical record that can survive audit and review.

So here’s what we covered on the show:

  • How this process/practice came about
  • How it was accepted, what challenges did they both face to enable the process
  • How have their processes changed over time
  • Recommendations for others who want to adopt a rounding process

Also, again joining us this week was Dr. Deepak Pahuja, CEO & CMO at Aerolib Healthcare Solutions, who provided a scenario and quiz about SNF qualifying stays, which was a perfect example to show how a physician advisor and rounding program could prevent real, not-uncommon problems for both hospitals and patients.

Included in this week’s handouts were:

Slides for Dr. Stein & Dr. Salvatore Interview on Rounding
Slides for Dr. Pahuja’s SNF Test & Scenario
Medicare Benefits Policy Manual, Chapter 8
Medicare Booklet on Coverage of SNF Care
