    Presented on:
    Wednesday, May 8, 2019 | 1:00–2:30 p.m. EST

    Presented by: Marilyn Hart Niedzwiecki, MBA, CPA, RN, CPC, COC, CIRCC

    An effective, efficient revenue integrity program is a must in today’s world of narrow margins, high risk, and rapidly evolving reimbursement. Revenue integrity is a highly collaborative discipline and depends upon good communication, relationship building, and defined goals and roles. Without clear metrics, organized plans, and accountability, revenue integrity will not be able to accomplish its mission and may create additional risks and revenue loss. An annual work plan is essential to ensure that all key charge capture areas are regularly reviewed, but defining the scope of the work plan and identifying priorities can be a daunting task.

    During this 90-minute program with live Q&A, speaker Marilyn Hart Niedzwiecki, MBA, CPA, RN, CPC, COC, CIRCC, will explain how she developed and implemented an annual revenue integrity work plan at Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Niedzwiecki will break down the essential components of the work plan and explain how to identify annual goals. Attendees will gain insight into the complexities of charge capture monitoring and conducting an annual chargemaster review and update. Niedzwiecki will discuss the importance of interdepartmental collaboration, preparing annual reports on the work plan, and understanding how the work plan is shaped by the nuances of the EHR system.

    At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

    • Explain the benefit of a work plan
    • Develop a work plan
    • Execute a work plan
    • Describe how to report on a work plan
