“To advocate successfully for the resources needed to staff and operate their units, nurses need to become more financially savvy and increase their understanding of healthcare costs.”

Nursing is the largest professional group in the hospital—and usually the most expensive. As a nurse it is your responsibility to add your patient’s voice to the financial decision making that affects the quality and cost of the care they receive. That decision making begins with the revenue received for the work that the entire healthcare delivery team does. It is not enough anymore to simply concentrate on delivering care. You must now share in the responsibility for how that care is compensated and then how those resources are distributed.
This course concentrates on the rules that insure your team is reimbursed fairly for the work it does. There is no one who will be more concerned about how you are reimbursed than you. Healthcare reimbursement is becoming increasingly complex. It is also the key to your ability to bring high quality care to your patients, while at the same time ensuring a sustainable practice environment. Leaving those details to others because it is too complicated or time consuming can have adverse consequences. This course will take your through how healthcare providers at all levels are reimbursed. It then looks at the features of individual production based contracts so that you will be able to negotiate successfully to create a fair compensation, a detail that is very important to you and your family. We all work very hard in our practices, let make sure we all are compensated fairly for that work.
