Quick Tip

Ensure appropriate attribution for APPs

Many organizations continue to struggle with appropriately attributing care provided by advanced practice professionals (APP), especially when there are specific supervision requirements in place that must be met before the patient encounter can be closed. Coding such encounters appropriately for billing purposes can be a significant challenge, particularly when resources and/or technological capabilities are limited. Organizations must find a way to resolve these issues for many reasons, including patient safety, performance improvement endeavors, risk management, and regulatory and accreditation requirements.

Call for submissions

We’re exploring the possibility of publishing a book that features first-class, field-sourced credentialing and privileging resources, along with expert commentary on what makes them so great. Think The OPPE Toolbox and The FPPE Toolbox but with practitioner vetting–focused tools. Send your best credentialing and privileging creations our way, and if they’re selected for publication, we’ll provide you a complimentary copy of the book in which they appear.* Because we’re looking to assemble a collection of forms, policies, letters, plans, reports, and related tools that reflect the diversity and breadth of the practitioner vetting landscape, we welcome relevant resources from credentialing and privileging entities of all shapes and sizes. Email your files (and any questions) to CRC Editor Delaney Rebernik at drebernik@hcpro.com.

Now is an exciting time to begin a medical career. Many grants and programs supporting educational opportunities are available today. This blog is dedicated to providing current information for schools, training, and job opportunities related to medical and nursing fields. The US Department of Labor projects that over 500,000 jobs will be added to the Health-Care Industry in the next 7 years. Now that President Obama's Health Care Plan, or ObamaCare, is in effect the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) has announced a 8%-13% increase in their corporatation's healthcare plan-cost due. Why would the AARP support Obama's Health plan? Because further cutbacks on Medicare from this legislation will increase seniors needing private coverage. According to the Nov 12, 2010 'Wall Street Journal' (author Anne Tergesen) "As a result, as many as one million Medicare recipients will have to choose new coverage, according to AARP". The USA already spends over $2.4 trillion dollars per year on the healthcare industry. The increase in private coverage will increase the number of private-sector jobs in the medical profession. Along with the 'Aging of America', where the majority of citizens need increased health services, numerous factors are driving the medical profession to rank top among the highest demand and highest paying careers in the country.
