About the Course

This two-day classroom based program is specifically deisgned to support clinic administrators, medical directors, and hospital executives in marketing and administrating a hyperbaric and wound care center in a manner that supports positive patient outcomes and long-term successful business operations. 

Our agenda covers nuts & bolts to ensure effectiveness in providing patient care and receiving accurate reimbursement within the operations of managing a wound care department.

There is lengthy discussion on medical procedures with specificity on clinical documentation supporting HBO and other procedures. The importance of following regulations at all levels, or risk external audit with possibly legal and costly ramifications under False Claims Act is discussed.
