CCM,  TCM,  Quality: Pulling it all Together
Led by Jean Ann Hartzell Minzey, Healthcare Education Strategies, Inc. 

CMS data show that many hospitals will be penalized this year for readmissions as well as performance against other quality metrics. Care coordination as a focus can benefit from:  Transitional Care Management (TCM) codes as well as Chronic Care Management (CCM) codes which have been created to improve care coordination and provide better incentives to ensure patients are seen in a physician's office, rather than be at risk for readmission. CMS' adoption of these codes is part of a broader multi-year strategy to recognize and support primary care and care management. CMS is rewarding providers who continue to treat their recipients in a quality based cost effective manner.
Questions have been asked: Is it worth it?  Providers who are providing these services and using the codes say……. YES!

The presentation is especially helpful for:  
• COOs, CFOs, CMOs
• Quality Directors, Case/Care Management
• Hospital Clinical Leadership
• Primary Care Providers, Practice Managers
• Staff Business Office Staff, Coding, Billing and Claims Transaction Staff
• Patient Financial Management Personnel, Financial Analysts
• HIM Directors/Managers, and Compliance Officers
