In This Episode, You’ll Hear About
Karen Shanaberger has a very robust background in Gastroenterology and she used to be the Quality Assurance Manager at one of the Endoscopy Centers connected to The Oregon Clinic, one of the largest medical practices in the country. While there, she created standardized reporting processes and data collection for four endoscopy centers and four clinics.
In this episode, she shares one of her biggest challenges (hint: it has to do with audits!) and how she overcame it and also breaks down the theoretical and actual payment differences between getting a procedure completed in a hospital outpatient department (HOPD) versus an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC).
She reviews the ASC Quality Reporting program with us and shares her gratitude that CMS seems to finally be listening to industry feedback. She offers tips to ASC practice administrators in staying up to date with reporting requirements and encourages them to connect with other like-minded medical groups in their community and region.
