Hot Education Topics

Ambulatory Patient Groups - Provider Consulting Solutions provides an introduction to the New York State Medicaid Ambulatory Payment Group (APG) payment methodology, as well as the impact on HIM, clinical staff and hospital finance at a deeper level of discussion.

All Patient Refined-DRGs - For Medicaid inpatient fee-for-service reimbursement, NYS Department of Health transitioned to the 3M All Patient Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (APR-DRGs) December 1, 2009. In many ways, APR-DRGs represent a major departure from the various DRG classification systems that have been used since the early 1980s. APR-DRGs classify patients according to their reason for admission, severity of illness and risk of mortality. APR-DRGs use a 16 step methodology to assign a DRG. We provide an overview of the impact APR -DRGs have on clinical documentation, coding and billing.
