Overview

Faced with increasing patient volumes, declining reimbursements and overworked ED staffs, hospitals must be prepared to leverage Observation Patient Management. Well-structured Observation Units have resulted in financial gains, improved clinical outcomes and superior patient satisfaction ratings.

The 2022 Hospital Observation Patient Management Conference will highlight the pertinent challenges facing Observation Unit staffs – ED physicians, Hospitalists, Case Managers and Billing and Coding professionals. Additionally, the conference will highlight how and why hospitals that are not utilizing Observation Patient Management, are leaving money on the table.

The 2022 Hospital Observation Patient Management Conference will enable you to walk away with an understanding of current trends and market practices, and innovative strategies to prepare yourself for the challenges that lie ahead. In addition to providing the latest, evidence-based intelligence on Observation Patient Management, the Conference will provide you with unprecedented networking and professional development opportunities. All sessions are designed to facilitate a high degree of interaction between speaker faculty members and fellow attendees.

By attending the 2022 Hospital Observation Patient Management Conference, you will learn what others in the Observation Patient Management and Emergency Medicine arenas are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2023.

Exhibitors

Boston HeartBoston Heart leads the market in advanced cardiometabolic diagnostic testing in the United States where almost half of the adult population is diabetic or prediabetic and cardiovascular disease kills approximately 2,300 Americans every day. Traditional diagnostic tools are failing to address the rapid increase in cardiometabolic disorders and Boston Heart provides advanced testing and lifestyle modification advice for patients.

Verustat

VeruStat is a full-service RPM company that allows Providers to receive consistent, trending data related to vitals such as blood pressure, weight, pulse ox, and blood glucose. We generate data from the patient's home, between office visits, without needing to increase practice resources. Live Care Coordinators regularly communicate with patients and perform the non-clinical work necessary practices to bill Medicare & Medicare Advantage. Verustat has data that suggests if your hypertensive patients are compliant with our program, they may have reductions of 15% in SBP, 10% in DBP, and 13% in MAP after just 6 months of monitoring.
