From The Blog
Here’s a collection of studies, reports and stories that caught our eye in the last month. Health technology to watch in 2017: From security and compliance to informatics and mobile health, Physicians Practice covers the eight health technology challenges and opportunities in 2017. On informatics, the publication writes that the use of electronic health records leads to “dramatic reductions in malpractice claims,” “faster lab results, “ and the “potential for significant cost savings and improved quality of care.” Are ICUs overused? More than 50 percent of patients admitted to the intensive care unit at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles may have been too well or too sick to be helped from ICU care, according to an article on MedPage Today. The article says researchers concluded that health care providers must more closely follow ICU priority ranking guidelines set by the Society of Critical Care Medicine to boost patient care and save money. Innovation needed for senior care: A survey by CareMore found that seniors need more help navigating the healthcare system. According to the report, nearly 65 percent of seniors polled had been to three or more health care providers in the last year, but few have expert help to coordinate their care. Nearly 70 percent relied on themselves or a family member. For those hospitalized, 63 percent said nobody coordinated their care within the critical months after discharge. “Coordinating care across multiple providers who treat a single patient is a key strategy for ensuring positive clinical outcomes, while also reducing costs,” the report says. OSHA expands reach: WC Magazine writes about the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s new regulations for reporting workplace injuries, which went into effect in December 2016. According to the article, OSHA has “expanded its reach to encompass almost any employment practice, policy or...
7 reasons why claims adjusters should work with Legal Nurse Consultants As an insurance adjuster, the cases you’re reviewing might not be much different from those examined by the generation of adjusters before you. There are injuries caused by car crashes and slips and falls, along with cases involving faulty products or workplace accidents. The claims may be, for the most part, the same. But the treatments – and even the records themselves – may be entirely different from what your counterparts were scanning a couple of decades ago. Electronic health records, for instance, have nearly made paper ones obsolete. Concerns over the country’s opioid addiction epidemic are forcing entirely new ways to handle chronic pain. Telehealth allows patients to consult with doctors in far-flung regions. But these new health care advances aren’t the only changes. Escalating medical costs and provider fees; more litigated cases; and higher litigation fees make it vital that adjusters review cases with not just a careful eye, but a critical one. Legal Nurse Consultants, who often bring years of work experience as a registered nurse, are trained to review complex medical records and uncover the facts and tidbits that can make or break a case. They provide adjusters with full medical reviews and analyses for complicated claims of all kinds and sizes. Are you wondering if you should hire an LNC? Here are seven things you’ll get if you do: Improved medical understanding: An LNC can translate complicated medical information, records, charges and codes so adjusters understand all aspects of a case. Accurate record: The more you understand about a claim, the better you can navigate the claim and understand which treatments were related to the case and which were related to pre-existing conditions. Leg up on the opposition: Without the expertise of a...
