Transparency and Your Chargemaster: Planning Ahead Webinar Series

December 18, 2019
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Central Time

The most important thing to get right with transparency is assuring that the prices you calculate and display are competitive with your peer group.

Following up on the hospital price transparency rule that went into effect on January 1, 2019, [section 2718(e) of the Public Health Services Act] the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a series of proposed new rules on July 29, 2019. These proposed rules include several new requirements that up the ante on transparency required in the original rule.

Learn what critical actions are needed in anticipation for the proposed price transparency rules, and with Vitalware Hospital Price Index, see how you can improve your own competitive intelligence with everything you need to be confident about how you calculate and display your pricing.

View some key steps you might consider in proactive response — not only to the specific changes proposed, but to the business environment, and perhaps more importantly, the consumer response they’re likely to bring about.

Learning objectives include:

- Review a brief history of the pricing transparency initiatives and what the future holds for these initiatives

- Examine the requirements and the penalties for noncompliance outlined in the final rule

- Discuss the potential impacts of the final rule on hospitals

- Discuss best practice strategies for compliance with the requirements
