    AAHIM | 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting – Hospitals in the 21st Century

    As hospitals across the country continue to expand their outpatient services, the gap between overall inpatient and outpatient revenue continues to shrink. This shift in the health care industry means that hospitals must take a broader approach when it comes to the most effective care path for incoming patients. While inpatient care remains a primary focus, the trends are revealing that the best course of action is to also embrace newer, more holistic models of care in which outpatient services are given justified emphasis as well.

    AAHIM | 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting – Inside the Hack: How Hackers are Breaking into Networks and Why a Ransomware Attack has been the Lynch Pin in Hospital & Clinic Closures

    In 2019, hundreds of clinics and hospitals nation-wide have gone offline (often for weeks at a time) from ransomware attacks. In 2020, cyber criminals have honed their targets on healthcare—specifically rural. These attacks have led to decreased quality of care and (in some instances) bankruptcies and closures. What have we learned this year? We have to change our approach in rural health to cybersecurity, data management and disaster preparedness. We’ve been too reactive for far too long. We need to rethink how we’re managing and protecting our networks by changing how we approach our big cybersecurity problem. My message to you—to beat a hacker you’ve got to start thinking like one. By looking at your systems through the eyes of a hacker, you will be better equipped at protecting your facility from growing cyberattacks and data breaches. In this talk we will walk through facilities like yours through the lens of hacker trying to get in.

    AAHIM | 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting – Integrating Clinical and Financial Process and Data to Drive Revenue Integrity

    The integration of clinical and financials processes and data is critical to a sustainable provider organization. This new era of revenue integrity requires close monitoring of clinicians’ ordering, documentation practices, and clinical significance, in order to ensure appropriate reimbursement, avoid denials and improve public quality reporting. Clinical documentation has never been more vital since performance-based payments are not directly linked to quality measures that required data and information.

    This session is intended to discuss data driven CDI for continuous improvement through internal auditing and feedback mechanisms, collaboration with coding and providers in order to solve issues related to more efficiently merge clinical and financial processes.

    Session Objectives: To improve patient care, revenue and compliance, a clinical documentation chain requires collaboration throughout the organization. Weak links anywhere along the chain will contribute to poor data quality. This presentation will describe:

    -Regulatory Issues impacting healthcare
    -What is Revenue Integrity
    -What is Denials Management and strategies to prevent downstream revenue cycle problems
    -How does CDI link Quality Measures, Care Coordination, Revenue -Integrity and Denials Prevention through ongoing data driven CDI practices
    -Focus on meaningful metrics to better manage outcomes
