Strategies To Increase Cardiac Rehab Participation In EPMs

  July 18, 2017

Speakers:
Robert DeBusk, MD, FACC Emeritus, Stanford University School of Medicine
Maryann Classick-Wallace, RN, BSN, Director of Non Invasive Cardiology and Cardiac Rehab, Lourdes Health System

Cardiac rehabilitation is a proven intervention to improve patient outcomes, reduce readmissions and engage patients post discharge. Despite its well-documented benefits, less than 20% of patients participate in rehab programs. As health care rapidly adopts value-based reimbursement models, novel approaches are needed to increase cardiac rehab participation. This webinar highlights evidence for the importance of cardiac rehab and explores proven strategies, tools and new technologies for expanding the impact of cardiac rehab to increase patient engagement and adherence, including home-based and hybrid models. It will also cover the business case for cardiac rehab within the 90-day cardiac bundle.

Are You Ready for MACRA?

2016 Webinar - Speakers: Joel Sauer, VP, MedAxiom Consulting, and Michelle Reese, Senior Consultant, MedAxiom Inc. This new law changes everything about how providers are paid for services and offers two very distinct pathways to value-based reimbursement.  The MedAxiom Consulting Team will share an overview of the MACRA changes, but perhaps more importantly, practical strategies and tactics that your program should undertake now to be successful in the new value economy. We will explore Risk Adjustment and how Clinical Documentation Improvement initiatives are more important than ever under the new payment models. Whether an integrated program or a private practice, MACRA will require physicians and hospitals to work together on the Triple Aim Initiatives.  Strategies for both environments will be discussed.
