Physician Time Studies: An Important Component of An Effective Compliance Program

| 3/14/2018

Given the intense scrutiny of the Office of the Inspector General and Department of Justice on physician compensation arrangements and the recent rash of multi-million-dollar settlements, hospitals need a quick and easy way to capture, document, and report time spent on activities for which their physicians are contracted – thereby mitigating the risk of costly fines and penalties and ensuring appropriate reimbursement. This webinar will cover several of these trends, related risks, and some ideas for hospitals to consider in response.

As a result of viewing this on-demand webinar, you should be able to:

  • Explain the regulatory and policy history and evolving legal framework surrounding physician time studies
  • Identify the challenges and pitfalls of existing time study processes
  • Recognize the benefits of using technology to enhance compliance and reduce risks

Accurately and compliantly capturing, documenting, and reporting provider time for reimbursement can be challenging, but the risk of inaction or improper documentation may cost your institution big. Join us for this session to see how your efforts compare to industry leading practices and how you can increase the effectiveness of your program.
