Could New AHA Advice Raise Surgery Complication Rates?
Show Notes

Surgery doesn't have to be complicated; it  shouldn't automatically translate into a misadventure.
Recent American Hospital Association (AHA) advice has the potential to result in artificially elevated complication rates for surgery, however, jeopardizing your safety and performance profiles. Clinical accuracy of diagnoses is king, even in the operating room.
Reporting on this developing story during the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be senior healthcare executive Allen Frady, who will reveal important information and provide tips on how to approach this conversation without accidentally veering into forbidden territory.
The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, senior healthcare consultant with Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, will have the Talk-Ten-Tuesdays Coding Report, along with the broadcast’s weekly Listeners Survey.

  • Tuesday Focus: Fixing Healthcare, Part I: Bureaucratic, redundant, labor-intensive, wasteful, costly things appear to characterize some healthcare operations. What are some solutions? Rose Dunn, former American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) CEO, and COO for First Class Solutions, will return to the broadcast with an exclusive two-part series in which she offers ideas aimed at fixing healthcare.
  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert and ICD10monitor national correspondent, will anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk.
