Marblehead, MA (PRWEB) June 17, 2008
HealthLeaders Media today announced what's coming in its June issue of HealthLeaders magazine, the only publication created exclusively for healthcare executives.
*FEATURE STORY: Can Your Hospital Survive on Medicare?
The short answer, of course, is no. But there are ways to insulate your facilities from Medicare's influence as cuts and incentives threaten.
*Also in the June issue:
The ED Stands Alone -- A growing number of hospitals are considering freestanding emergency departments as a way to reach more patients and improve efficiency. But not everyone is convinced such facilities are everything they claim to be.
The Case for Palliative Care -- As the population ages and patients get sicker, palliative medicine is increasingly recognized as a way to both improve patient care and save valuable hospital resources.
Databanks of the Future -- Eyeing 'personalized medicine,' leading research centers are creating vast storehouses of images and genetic information.
When the Auditor Comes Calling -- Medicare's RAC demonstration is designed to catch payment mistakes, but some providers say auditors are getting carried away.
