    Financial Management

    About the Webinar

    Diagnostic codes are an important and sometimes misunderstood aspect of correct coding. They are a key element in all claims that support medical necessity and by documenting the severity of the condition. Improper ICD-10 diagnostic coding can lead to claim denials and other missed revenue opportunities. It can also make the practice a target for audits and expose it to risk. Attend this session to increase your level of understanding of the importance of diagnosis coding for all specialties and all services.

    Learning Objectives
    •    Explain the correlation of medical decision making and diagnosis coding
    •    Identity coding rules for professional fee coding vs facility coding vs risk adjustment
    •    Describe how to find the guidelines for use of ICD-10 codes and understand key regulations

    Financial Management

    Led by the New York MGMA in collaboration with the CT MGMA, DE MGMA, and PA MGMA and VA MGMA.

    About the Webinar

    Medical professionals are tasked with running a leaner and more efficient practice while experiencing lower reimbursements and higher costs. Revenue reporting and analysis are more critical than ever to drive higher performance and maintain a successful medical practice. A benchmarking analysis is a good first step to protecting and securing a practice’s overall performance and profitability.

    A thorough benchmarking review will include both data analysis and observations and recommendations. Data analysis allows for meaningful measurement against industry indices and trends. Observations and recommendations provide the interpretation of the data analysis to equip the practice for better performance in the future. 
    This webinar will identify the critical components of the revenue cycle that every practice should understand and review.  By understanding these metrics, you can be on your way to improving the financial health of your practice and increasing the valuation of what  may be your most valuable asset.

    The Impact of Rules, Regulations & Legislation

    There is a direct impact on the delivery and business of healthcare whether Washington, D.C. or Harrisburg enacts legislation, or whether a federal or state agency issues regulations and reforms. We, as healthcare leaders, must understand and deal with how our patients and practice are affected.
