McBee, MultiCare Health System present on case management partnerships at CCMC National Conference

Wayne, Pa. (Jan. 19, 2017)—McBee’s Director of Care Management, Karen Haesloop, RN, FNP, MSN will present with MultiCare Health System’s Director of Utilization, Appeals, and Audit Management, Debra Schardt, RN, CPUR, during the breakfast symposium, “A Partnership Approach to Getting Your Patient’s Status Right.” This symposium will be held Jan. 27 at the CCMC New World Symposium 2017.

The symposium will demonstrate how an innovative partnership between a large hospital system and a real-time remote care management solution can successfully launch a re-engineered Patient Access and Utilization Management Program.  The presenters will share recent experiences as they worked together over several months to implement a robust review process to determine and document the medical necessity of a patient’s status upon bed placement.

“We are excited to share our insights at the CCMC New World Symposium,” said Haesloop. “These partnerships are ultimately designed to address and protect patient rights and financial obligations.”
