The costs of managing prolonged ICU stays for COVID-19  patients, combined with lost revenue from decreased ambulatory visits and the cancellation of elective procedures, will have health systems and provider groups emerging from the ongoing pandemic with significant financial challenges.  

It will be more important than ever to ensure that clinical documentation reflects the true complexity of care being delivered. Reporting our lead story during this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be Matt Lambert, MD, an emergency medicine physician and the chief medical officer for Curation Health.

The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • Mental Health Report: H. Steven Moffic, MD, one of America’s foremost psychiatrists, returns to the broadcast to report on the impact of climate change on mental health – part of an exclusive series he is authoring for ICD10monitor.

  • Tuesday Focus: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced expanded coverage for essential diagnostic services amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  Susan Gatehouse, founder and CEO of Axea Solutions, reports on this latest development.

  • Coding Report: Laurie Johnson has an update on the deadly coronavirus that continues to dominate international as well as domestic news headlines. 

  • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc. and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, will return to the broadcast to report on another thought-provoking topic that has captured her attention.
