Description Experience

Register now to attend this extremely important and timely webcast to learn how to navigate the unforgiving lunar terrain that is called the MOON the Medicare Outpatient Observation Notice (MOON). This form is the result of the NOTICE Act passed by Congress that requires hospitals to provide written notification to observation patients.

Your guide will be Mary Beth Pace, Vice President of Care Management at Trinity Health. She has been to the MOON and back and will offer crucially important guidance based on her bringing together her system's revenue and IT teams. She explain how patient registration is taking the lead on issuing the MOON.

Learn how they're making electronic signatures available to patients. Listen as she'll explain how you can surmount the challenge of changing the MOON form as patient status changes from inpatient to outpatient/observation and outpatient/observation to inpatient. And knowing that when you do that incorrectly, you could be in more trouble than you think if you do it too soon or too late!
