Attending the Executive Health Resources (EHR) reception tonight

Tonight, Executive Health Resources or EHR is having a Cocktails & Conversation event. If you're considering a  career change, perhaps you may enjoy working for a company like EHR. What would you do as a physician advisor? Get familiar with the phrase RAC (Recovery Audit Contractor).  Not familiar with the concept?  Click here to read about RACs on the Medicare website.

Here's a snippet from their website that describes the "The Physician Advisor Approach"
EHR's Physician Advisor review provides an admission status certification, which is supported by clinical evidence, compliant with CMS rules and regulations, and robust enough to withstand external scrutiny.

EHR is at the forefront of regulatory changes and monitors CMS closely in order to anticipate high-risk areas before they become a liability for the hospital. EHR has built a team of leading industry experts to conduct ongoing research and development of evidence-based, risk-stratified protocols and algorithms surrounding high-risk DRGs to assist its Physicians Advisors in defending RAC denials.

One of the most important tools in EHR's arsenal is in the area of content development. EHR has a team of physicians and nurses who are responsible for supporting our Physician Advisor teams with the latest in risk assessment and risk stratification tools. Medicare's directions in the Medicare Benefits Policy Manual require that we examine the probability that a patient will have an adverse outcome. CMS ruling 95-1 directs EHR Physician Advisors to utilize an evidence-based, literature-based standard in determining such outcomes.

EHR develops and maintains this type of information and puts it in the hands of our Physician Advisors who work directly with your hospitals. These tools involve standard high-risk diagnoses such as chest pain, congestive heart failure, and gastroenteritis. Sometimes, these tools represent wholly unique offerings, such as our Interventional Cardiac Procedure Review, which focuses on ICD's, Pacemakers, and PCI – procedures in which little or no guidance exists anywhere else. These products are developed internally and offered to our clients as the market need evolves.

Maybe I'll see you tonight.
