Ready or Not, the New OT and PT Eval CPT Codes are Coming
Fusion Web Clinic
December 09, 2016
On January 1, 2017, the occupational therapy & physical therapy evaluation and re-evaluation codes 97001, 97002, 97003, and 97004 were going to be permanently retired and would be replaced by eight new, much more complex evaluative CPT codes, required by CMS and the AMA for all HIPAA-covered entities and all payers.

What this meant for therapists and clinics was that if they failed to use these new medical billing codes, then they would receive no reimbursement from medicare and medicaid.

Transitioning from Paper to a Web Based EMR
Fusion Web Clinic
December 09, 2015
Industry regulations are pushing healthcare into the digital age, whether you like it or not. Since it is only a matter of time before you will be required to use electronic documentation, it is really in your best interest to spend some time looking for a system that not only meets your needs, but exceeds them. The transition can be relatively easy, or really hard, depending on the software you buy.

Fusion Web Clinic
November 20, 2015
Helping patients is your passion. Yet, it is scheduling, documentation, and billing that are the building blocks of your business. They are the necessary tasks that allow you to do the job you love.

Most pediatric therapists know that an EMR software can help manage these tasks. This software (when done right) is faster, easier, and more compliant than paper systems.

Everything You Need to Know About Web-Based EMRs
Fusion Web Clinic
January 27, 2015
What is a Web-Based EMR?
Let's start with a definition. A web-based or "cloud"-based electronic records management system (EMR) is software that stores data through the internet. "Cloud" refers to the place electronic data is stored. A web-based EMR generally refers to an off-site server, or group of servers, where all the information is stored.

Ready or Not, the New OT and PT Eval CPT Codes are Coming
Fusion Web Clinic
December 09, 2016
Both the American Medical Association (AMA) and CMS worked together on an initiative that would temporarily change the CPT (billing) codes that occupational and physical therapists use on a daily basis for new patient evaluations, which would determine the complexity of the service and subsequent treatment provided to patients, which would be analyzed after one year and then used to determine how occupational and physical therapists would be reimbursed for all future treatments for those CPT codes. My goal of this article was to inform and educate the entire U.S. population of OT and PT, roughly 500,000 healthcare professionals, how to use the new codes in practice, correctly, but also AMA's and CMS's intention of leveraging big data and predictive analytics to measure the use and cost of using each CPT, which would directly impact a large percentage of each clinician's short and long-term compensation.

Product Development & Revenue Growth Strategy: Accelerated path to improve Liquidity and Profitability

Location: United States    Date Available: April 01st, 2021     Fees: Varies

Submission Date: July 17th, 2018     Service Type: Service Offered

I work closely with fund managers and company executives to understand their immediate and long-term goals for all stakeholders and gain a deep understanding of their historic and existing market position/performance, target customer and market, execution teams (personnel), existing and forecasted financial resources, sales and marketing channels, strategic channel/production relationships (past and present), and several other industry specific components. Once I have a firm understanding of all relevant components that impact the operation's performance and reaching future top and bottom-line goals, I then work with all relevant stakeholders on developing both a high-level strategic timeline for key executives and a detailed execution plan for accelerating the path to reaching all measurable operating performance and expansion goals to maximize profitability and improve liquidity.
