Why This is Relevant:

Since the introduction of the two-midnight rule and the requirement for an authenticated admission order to be in the chart prior to discharge, hospitals have struggled to comply. In the 2019 IPPS Proposed Rule, CMS proposed loosening the regulations. In this webcast, Dr. Hirsch will review the rule and provide hospitals with a compliant interpretation of this new guidance along with illustrated case examples. He will also provide an overview of the 2019 Outpatient Prospective Payment (OPPS) Proposed Rule with speculation on what the proposals will bring in 2019.

Learning Objectives:

During this essential webcast, Dr. Hirsch will…

  • Interpret the new guidance from CMS on inpatient admission orders;
  • Provide examples of compliant and non-compliant inpatient admissions;
  • Review other IPPS regulations pertinent to case managers, utilization review staff, and compliance professionals; and
  • Analyze the significant changes in the proposed 2019 OPPS Rule and implications of those new proposals.
