Hospital specialty service lines have many accreditations available to them - Joint Commission Disease Specific Certification, ACoS Commission on Cancer, Blue Distinction Center designation, NCQA Disease Management, etc - how do you know which ones are right for you? How do you calculate the ROI for them? How will they affect your reimbursement? Felicia's presentation will discuss how to start accreditation planning for your service line (spine, oncology, bariatrics, etc) and how to incorporate accreditation readiness into your day-to-day care coordination activities. Planning includes deciding why you need accreditations that payers target (commercial and CMS). Then, gathering the outcomes that the accreditations require (e.g. CoC standards, surgery outcomes for spine, long-term outcomes for bariatrics, etc); and finally, planning for how to shepherd those outcomes to fruition through strategic operations and specialty care coordination.
