Needs Assessment and Description
This live presentation for physicians, medical staff, and practice managers will describe ways to bring diagnostic/ treatment technologies and surgical procedures into the office to maximize physician time and revenue.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
- Identify different diagnostic and treatment procedures that can be performed in an office setting—including implementation, equipment, staffing expenses, and reimbursement issues—to determine revenue efficacy.
- Discuss additional surgical procedures that can be performed in a surgery-center office suite— including costs of implementation, equipment, staffing expenses, and reimbursement issues—to determine revenue efficacy.
Performing in-house hysterosalpingograms (HSG) can affect the reimbursement/revenue stream by:
a. An increase in physician charges but a decrease in facility fees and need for radiologist reading fees.
b. A decrease in physician and facility charges but an increase in physician productivity scheduling.
c. An increase in physician and facility charges and productivity.
d. Being detrimental to the long-term revenue stream due to upfront expenses, equipment, implementation, and staffing issues.
