Multifaceted Roles of the Physician Advisor

We are in the midst of tremendous change in health care. The notion that a physician advisor only needs to know how to determine a proper level of care is well past us at this point.

Physicians are taught how to care for patients first and foremost, and that will always be the primary responsibility. Providers are generally not taught how the systems that are built around them work; especially how care translates into reimbursement.

There are age-old issues that are still not widely understood:

  • How do you efficiently move a patient through the hospital, through transitions of care settings, and through the entire care continuum?
  • How is the quality of care measured?
  • When can you rely on an insurer to tell you if a certain procedure is covered, and when are you expected to know that yourself?
  • Did you just provide free care to an insured patient because you did not know the rules?
There are mundane issues that decrease hospital throughput and efficiency that can be significantly improved with simple focusing and coordination of the clinical care team.

Additionally, population health initiatives, CMS' Quality Payment Program, and the Protecting Access to Medicare Act are changing how providers practice every day.
