If a hospital can improve its bottom line by $750,000 a year simply by decreasing patient length of stay by only 2 hours, and most institutions continue to hemorrhage 3% to 5% of net revenue as a result of reimbursement denials, how can you afford not to fix the problems? Why accept these unnecessary losses?

Leading hospitals are learning that there are relatively painless alternatives to the ongoing struggle with performance inefficiency, low revenue, and inadequate reimbursement rates. Physician Advisors, when leveraged appropriately, improve overall hospital performance and minimize medical and financial risks. They can improve medical management by evaluating the efficiency of medical services rendered with respect to the revenue-cycle continuum. If leveraged effectively and supported by administration and staff, their multifaceted role can do so much more. Physician Advisors can systematically reduce length of stay by overcoming discharge barriers, implement optimal quality and patient safety initiatives, concurrently and retrospectively appeal denials, and educate their peers to increase collaboration and cooperation.

World Research Group’s conference on Optimizing the Role of the Physician Advisor is truly unique – it is the only conference that focuses solely on how to capitalize on the role of the Physician Advisor. Taking place on March 26-28, 2007, in Atlanta, GA, this unparalleled event will showcase specific strategies, proven solutions, and hospital-tested initiatives for improving medical management by leveraging Physician Advisors. You will learn how to:

-Reduce clinical denials and effectively increase reimbursement by improving coding compliance and documentation
-Develop effective tools to streamline admissions and reduce average length of stay
-Improve financial outcomes and staff satisfaction by facilitating cooperation among case management, staff nursing, ancillary departments, performance improvement, risk management and finance
-Overcome the obstacles posed by disruptive physician behavior
-Reduce liability risk by improving quality and safety initiatives
