Maintaining a sound utilization review (UR) process remains critical in the face of inpatient and outpatient hospital admissions changes due to COVID-19 and the public health emergency. Changes to billing and coding guidelines, as well as a decline in elective procedures, have upended hospital revenue projections. But with a clear understanding of the latest patient status regulations and a robust UR program in place, facilities can work toward ensuring no money is left on the table.

Bring your team to Mastering Utilization Review and Patient Status: A NAHRI Virtual Event to learn the latest strategies for concurrent and retrospective UR, Part A to B rebilling, inpatient-only list management, and prior authorization so you can protect your bottom line.

During Mastering Utilization Review and Patient Status: A NAHRI Virtual Event, you can earn valuable CEUs and ask questions of our expert speakers. Plus, you can network with your colleagues and peers through our easy-to-use conference platform!
