San Francisco, CA - April 9
Healthcare payment systems are evolving from simple pay-for-performance demonstration projects and never-event exclusions to Medicare value-based purchasing, readmission restrictions, and bundled payments. This seminar discusses the plans, pitfalls, and successes in designing a best-practice cost accounting system that is consistent with today's complex reimbursement environment.
After this seminar, you'll be able to:
- Document existing situations and rationalize cost allocation strategies, methodologies, and rules.
- Distinguish cost-allocation sort keys and their uses in determining profit and loss including patient days, admits and discharges, square footage, FTEs, total direct/indirect costs, physicians, departments and service lines, and depreciation expenses.
- Examine the implications of issues such as revenue offsets and grant allocation.
