Finally Friday! Broadcasts are Sponsored by
The Health Law Partners, Sound Physicians
The Sixth National Physician Advisor & UR Team Boot Camp
THIS WEEK, we just HAD to wade into all the discussion going on all over about what to do with TKAs. Well, at least the talk about how to decide the patient status assignment for these patients, PRE-OP…
There have been several articles published and we’ve chosen to review three of them that we think are RIGHT ON.
Plus, we’ve asked Ralph Wuebker of Optum 360 to come discuss his top points for your consideration about how to handle this new (sorta) and confusing (a little)(maybe) situation. We’ll be going over Ralph’s points at the top of the show, and get to the three articles we’ve chosen in the 2nd half of the show…
PLUS WE PROMISE A NEW FORMAT THAT ALLOWS FOR EVEN MORE DISCUSSION AND TEACHING! DON’T MISS THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW!
SO… we will be discussing these questions:
- WHY should TKA no longer be on the IP Only List
- WHAT is now ON the list that you may have missed
- WHAT kind of Patient Selection Protocols do you need
- WHAT does CMS expect from all this now
- WHAT happens with QIO and RAC audits now
- WHAT are the KEYS for documenting an IP TKA
- WHAT should your workflow and process be NOW
So join us, share your own insights and bring your questions for us!
