About the Webconference
Hospitals and health systems are operating in an environment of heightened competition for inpatient procedural volumes, making it more important to leverage niche capabilities in high grossing service lines. Stroke and spine procedures, the bread and butter of most neuroscience programs, comprise about half of all inpatient neurosciences volumes at the majority of organizations. These two programs represent not only an opportunity for growth but for care transformation.
New risk-based payment models are also poised to have a significant impact on stroke and spine services, forcing hospitals to right-size program offerings, revisit care processes to improve the medical management opportunity, and redesign their appropriateness infrastructure in response to increasing pressures from Medicare and commercial payers.
This two-part presentation helps hospital leaders navigate the complexities involved in designing stroke and spine programs. We'll offer directive guidance on how to maximize and grow these programs in a way that is conducive to the new health care environment.
