Overcoming MACRA obstacles with positive patient identification
Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm CT
With tens of millions of Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers changing between 2018 and 2020 as part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization (MACRA) Act, the risk for patient misidentification will likely increase. In response to that, healthcare organizations should employ preemptive strategies to lessen the impact that MACRA could have on their medical record integrity, revenue cycle efficiency, and ultimately patient safety and satisfaction.
Join this webinar to learn how to prepare for changes associated with the new Medicare card initiative, including:
- Understanding MACRA’s impact on patient identification
- Creating a 1:1 link between a patient and their medical record, using biometric identification
- Identifying best practices for medical record clean-up and data integrity
