Physician Practice Management Principles for Hospices

Physician Practice Management Principles for Hospices is proudly presented to you by National Association for Home Care & Hospice. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

Hospice providers face challenges in their quest to deliver high quality, compliant and cost effective physician and nurse practitioner visits to hospice and palliative care patients. Without many of the efficiencies of large physician practices, how can hospices best utilize this valuable resource for the benefit of our patients? This session will help hospice leaders discover the secrets of effective physician practice management, from tools for physicians to productivity expectations to compliant documentation for accurate reimbursement and appropriate revenue cycle management.

Learning Outcomes:

• Identify effective physician/nurse practitioner practice management principles which maximize hospice and palliative provider resources and patient access to care, including consideration of documentation methods, productivity expectations, and compensation structures
• Identify the Evaluation and Management Coding system, related physician documentation considerations, and monitoring and audit processes for compliant coding and accurate reimbursement
• Explain the reimbursement and revenue cycle challenges and potential solutions for hospice and palliative care physician/nurse practitioner visits
• Review changes in the federal physician quality payment programs such as PQRS, MACRA, and Meaningful Use and related considerations for Hospice /Palliative Medicine practitioners
