Presented by :
Wendy Kennedy, BS, RHIT

PROGRAM CONTENT
Course Content:
The Charge Description Master (CDM) is a critical component of the Hospital Revenue Cycle.  Not only does the CDM link directly to all patient revenue, it provides key information for utilization, management reporting, cost accounting and compliant billing.  With consumers driven to learn more about their health care costs, the CDM is a focal point for an organization's positive health.

The strategies discussed in this 60-minute Webinar will help attendees gain insight into CDM best practices and principles, and provide a sneak-peek into the industry's leading chargemaster solution playbook. This educational session will leave attendees with a team strategy to ensure you land in the end-zone for compliant and defensible CDM practices through:
* Transparent pricing
* Efficient CDM processes
* Accurate Data
* Manage appropriate staffing
