About the Conference

Faced with increasing patient volumes, declining reimbursements and overworked ED staff, 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 Observation Patient Management Forum will highlight the pertinent challenges facing observation unit staff – 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 forum will allow 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. Learn best practices in patient management and examine strategies to improve care, increase satisfaction and achieve organizational goals.
