Rapid Clinical Updates: Update on Anticoagulation for Hospitalists

Join us on Thursday, December 14, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. ET for the December edition of SHM’s Rapid Clinical Updates webinar: "Update on Anticoagulation for Hospitalists," with moderator Jagriti Chadha, MD, MPH, FACP, SFHM and speakers Scott Kaatz, DO, MSc, FACP, SFHM and Margaret Fang, MD, MPH.


Significant Split/Shared Billing Win for Hospitalists

SHM advocacy contributed to a newly finalized policy in the CY2024 Physician Fee Schedule, which will allow for the continued use of medical decision making, rather than an exclusively time-based policy, for split or shared visits. This better accounts for physician involvement and is more reflective of the team-based care of hospital medicine.
