The Value Cycle: Leveraging Supply Data for Success in a Value-Based World
Explore how supply data elements in both your item master and chargemaster can play a role in negotiating payments from CMS and commercial plans, disbursement across the continuum of care, and in assessing variations in clinical practice when compared to a clinical pathway. This webinar will also discuss how the providers that have accurate, measurable data will be better prepared to understand the cost of care, improve outcomes, and financially survive the transformation of the old traditional fee-for-service revenue cycle model to the “value cycle” that is on the horizon.
