As the country begins to reopen, it is essential to have clear and accurate data for leadership to make informed decisions during the phased reopening. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has recently announced guidelines for additional data to be reported to HHS by laboratories along with COVID-19 test results. These guidelines allow for standardization of reporting and ensure comprehensive and nearly real-time data for COVID-19 decision-makers.

During this episode of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Susan Gatehouse will discuss the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on specific individuals, such as minorities and the elderly, and the need to provide more detailed data to public health experts on a real-time basis. 

The podcast will also feature:

  • Tuesday Focus: Terry Fletcher, nationally recognized professional physician coder and auditor gives us tips and tricks on how to avoid an audit.

  • The Coding Report: June is Alzheimer's and brain awareness month, and Laurie Johnson briefs us on the stages of the disease.

  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, anchors the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk with a segment about Florida SNFs.

  • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD reports on acute blood loss anemia
