This session outlines anesthesia's impact on a hospital's revenue, cost, and market perception given Medicare reimbursement policies, quality reporting requirements, and incentive programs authorized through the Patient Protection and Accountable Care Act. Additionally, this webinar will address those metrics your anesthesia group should monitor to improve results and demonstrate value, including the surgical/anesthesia-related metrics in Medicare's Value-Based Purchasing program, and anesthesia's role as it relates to outcome metrics, which affect hospital reimbursement, and how the metrics apply to an accountable care organization. Specific examples and results will be provided.
After This Webinar You'll Be Able To:
- Engage in a discussion with your anesthesia group to align expectations around certain indicators.
- Develop a scorecard in collaboration with the anesthesia group.
- Understand the broader implications an anesthesia practice can have on your hospital's quantitative and qualitative results.
- Identify anesthesia's contribution to a commercial or Medicare accountable care organization in the context of global budgeting.
