South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005) To Err is Human - Building a Safer Health System A Report From The National Academies of Science, Institute of Medicine 44,000 – 98,000 patients killed each year by medical mistakes Key Recommendations Center for patient safety National mandatory reporting Peer review protections Focus greater attention on patient safety FDA should increase attention to safe use of drugs

4 Point of Care Billing: Yes You Can! South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005) It is necessary to create a culture of change that embraces patient safety through shared accountability within a blameless culture. Rosina Jones, LHRM, CHRM

5 Point of Care Billing: Yes You Can! South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005) Causes of Medical Mistakes 60-80% is human error Active errors Latent errors 15-20% is mechanical failure

6 Point of Care Billing: Yes You Can! South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005)

7 Point of Care Billing: Yes You Can! South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005) Three approaches to quality Remedial Alleviate the symptoms of the existing problem Corrective Eliminate the cause of existing problems or undesirable situation to prevent recurrence Preventative Eliminate the cause of potential problems

9 Point of Care Billing: Yes You Can! South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005) hile point-of-care testing (POCT) has significantly improved the timely delivery of diagnostic information for clinical decision making, the wide range of settings and operators involved in POCT add a layer of complexity to an institutions effort to ensure consistently high-quality results.

53 Point of Care Billing: Yes You Can! South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005) FAQ – Nursing Room Charge "Routine services" as defined in Medicare regulations found at 42CFR 413.53(B) are: "Routine services means the regular room, dietary and nursing services, minor medical equipment and surgical supplies and the use of equipment and facilities for which a separate charge is not customarily made. The Provider Reimbursement Manual also defines routine services at section 2202.6 "Inpatient routine services in a hospital...generally are those services included by the provider in a daily service charge – sometimes referred to as the room and board charge. Routine services are composed of two broad components: (1) general routine services and (2) special care units, including coronary care units and intensive care units. Included in routine services are the regular room, dietary and nursing services, minor medical and surgical supplies, medical social services, psychiatric social services and the use of certain equipment and facilities for which a separate charge is not customarily made." The Provider Reimbursement Manual defines Ancillary Services at section 2202.8 as follows: "Ancillary services in a hospital...include laboratory, radiology, drugs, delivery room, operating room and therapy services. Ancillary services may also include other special items and services for which charges are customarily made in addition to a routine service charge." 23

54 Point of Care Billing: Yes You Can! South Carolina POC Group (29 April 2005) FAQ – Repeat Glucose testing Question from ASF (AdminaStar Federal, Inc.) to CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, formerly HCFA) In November we spoke of CMSs requirement that to be deemed reasonable and necessary a physician must use the result of a test in the management of a beneficiarys specific problem (Program Memorandum AB-00- 108). In the instance where a physician has ordered repeated testssuch as a glucose test ordered every half hourwe asked if ASF interprets the requirement to mean a lab or hospital must contact a physician with the results of each test and request another before a repeat test can be performed. ASF replied with a statement from its Local Medical Review Policy (LMRP) on glucose monitoring: For purposes of this policy prompt physician notification means prior to the next blood glucose test or within eight hours, whichever is sooner. We accept ASFs assurance that this requirement is only applied to the outpatient setting, but there is still a problem with outpatient observation and emergency services, where the physician is often quite specific with his/her plan of care, and will order a series of glucose tests with precise instructions on how to proceed based on their results. Does ASFs opinion about the need to personally contact a physician with the results of a repeat test before another test can be performed extend to emergency patients or to those who have been admitted to outpatient observation?. Answer from CMS: The intent of the policy was not that it be applied to Emergency Department patients or those in observation status, who would be receiving frequent attendance by the physician.
