Join Frank Long, editorial director of Rehab Management and Physical Therapy Products as he speaks with
John Wallace, physical therapist, and chief executive officer of BMS Practice Solutions, Upland, Calif.
Therapy practices can take advantage of ICD-10 to increase the performance they get from documentation and billing in a way that leaves a clear and beneficial mark on patient outcomes and the bottom line.
John speaks candidly about what ICD-10 means to therapists who want to clarify their thinking about patients—and the advantage of thinking “condition” over “complexity.” He also discusses what payors really need to know regarding the care of physical therapy patients, and how they feel about impairment measures versus ability to function.
Finally, John reveals how demonstrating clinical reasoning helps payors connect the dots for the services you provide.
