Sorting Out Rules and Regulations in Healthcare

Expert Speaker: Dr. Ronald Hirsch, MD, FACP, CHCQM-PHYADV, CHRI, FABQAURP

Change is the only constant that we have today. Everything hospitals, managed care organizations, ACOs and providers were doing last year at this time has been changed as we work to survive COVID-19.  As you know the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has changed so many rules so over the past few months it is hard to know where we are and what we are required to do. 

Join me on November 4 as I have a conversation with our medical expert Dr. Ronald Hirsch to address your issues and answer your questions. Dr. Hirsch is a recognized expert in health care quality and management with particular focus on Inpatient and Outpatient care and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations. He is Board certified by the American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians with Physician Advisor sub-specialty designation. He is also a member of the Advisory Boards of the American College of Physician Advisors (ACPA) and the National Association of Healthcare Revenue Integrity (NAHRI) and a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians. He is also a course director for Athena Forum.

In this interactive workshop we will

  1. Discuss some of the changes that impact case managers in hospitals and other setting as a result of COVID-19.
  2. We will look at what is in store for 2021 as far as some of the top regulations case managers and utilization review teams need to know.
  3. Discuss trusted resources you can use to keep up to date during these changing times.

 So we address your questions, we invite you to send your questions, challenges and innovative strategies to us ahead of time so we can address them as part of the webinar. Please add your thoughts in the comment section when you register.
