2017 Revenue Integrity Symposium Pre-Conference and Post-Conference Boot Camps



Register for the 2017 Revenue Integrity Symposium and save 15% off our special Pre-Con and Post-Con Boot Camps.
Click the "Pricing" tab for more details!


Pre-Conference: Medicare Boot Camp®—Utilization Review Version (October 21-22)

Medicare Boot Camp—Utilization Review Version is an intensive two-day course focusing on the Medicare regulatory requirements for patient status and the role of the utilization review (UR) committee. 

Managing patient status plays a critical role in proper compliance, correct reimbursement, and stabilizing inpatient payments for the hospital. Don’t leave money on the table—ensure the UR committee is ready to implement and leverage the regulatory requirements. Medicare Boot Camp—Utilization Review Version also answers all your questions about navigating the CMS website and finding Medicare requirements. You will be able to find answers to your questions long after the boot camp is over.


Post-Conference Option 1: Case Management Boot Camp: Strategies for Enhancing the Continuum of Care (October 25-27)

The Case Management Boot Camp focuses on arming case managers with knowledge of best practices on topics such as discharge planning, collaborative practice, and utilization management so they can go back to their hospitals, set goals to meet best practices as closely as possible, and raise the bar. It includes strategies for defining the role of case managers and selecting the models that may work best at your facility, in addition to offering practical advice on measuring outcomes related to patient care.

Post-Conference Option 2: Medicare Boot Camp—Provider-Based Departments Version (October 25-26)

A new congressional mandate combined with other significant encounter-based packaging initiatives by CMS mean big changes in the reimbursement for provider-based departments (PBD), both on- and off-campus. Hospitals have to understand both the outpatient prospective payment system as well as the new PBD site-specific physician fee schedule payment to effectively operate these departments and assess the impact of these initiatives on PBDs and patients. With more hospitals moving services off-campus due to the value of hospital space or for patient convenience, reimbursement and compliance now become even more complex. 

The Medicare Boot Camp—Provider-Based Departments Version provides education on attestations, on- and off-campus determinations, enrollment, billing, and reimbursement. This Boot Camp will provide brand new insight for understanding hospital outpatient department billing and reimbursement in an ever-changing regulatory landscape. 

This boot camp will break down billing, coding, compliance, coverage, qualification, and other issues. It will help attendees gauge the financial impact of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (Section 603) on off-campus PBDs, understand the effects of the recent increased packaging of services, and know how to handle other recent changes, such as now-mandatory use of modifiers -PO and -PN.
