healthcare information and
Utilization review (UR) allows hospitals to monitor and protect themselves and their patients against unnecessary readmissions. It is important to be compliant with UR standards to avoid penalties from the recovery audit contractors and the Office of the Inspector General. During this program, attendees will learn about what information hospitals must have implemented from the CMS CoPs for UR. Preventing unnecessary readmissions is essential. Hospitals that have a higher rate of readmission now receive less money from CMS.
So, what's in your UR plan? Does your hospital have a contract with your state QIO? Is there concise documenting in the chart regarding medical necessity and compliance with the Two-Midnight rule? Our expert will discuss the new MOON forms and provide plans for hospitals to have all necessary documents in their medical records.
