It takes a village to raise a child, but it took an integrated, multi-discipled team approach to improve patient safety indicators (PSIs) at ChristianaCare – as you’ll learn more about on Tuesday, Oct. 18, during the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, the popular, long-running Internet radio program produced by ICD10monitor.
In cooperation with ChristianaCare, Talk Ten Tuesdays and ICD10monitor are beginning a new series on PSIs, with specific focus on how a team approach is helping physicians avoid unwittingly triggering such issues through their documentation. Reporting the lead story will be Varadarajan Subbiah, MD, MBA, FACP, Vice President of Utilization Management and Quality for ChristianaCare, a major nonprofit teaching hospital system headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware. You will hear Dr. Subbiah report that their analysis concluded that documentation and coding represent among the biggest opportunities for improvement, and that externally reported ranking programs and the associated financial penalties served as their catalyst for change.
Other segments during the live broadcast will include the following:
