Register by Jan. 8 to save on hotel, tuition

Attendees at this year’s Post-Acute Care Conference will hear an important update on CMS’ final rule on the Therapy Functional Reporting System. The new rule, released on Nov. 16, 2012, will significantly impact providers of therapy services by imposing new claims and documentation processes. Therapy caps and issues surrounding manual medical review will also be reviewed in the same session. Additional topics will include post-acute strategic planning, model hospital transition programs, and best practices to reduce readmissions. Big picture policy issues will also be covered, including the influence of policy on practice of care, and how quality indicators research may impact providers. State and federal leaders will also share perspectives on policy and key programs, including the much-debated Coordinated Care Initiative.
