Master the challenge of increased outpatient treatment and seize opportunities. Fully KHZG eligible under FTB 4
Do you know your outpatient treatment risk?
The outpatient treatment risk for an average hospital will be about EUR 4 million per year* in the future if certain treatments are mistakenly provided on an inpatient basis. Kumi Clinical helps you decide on the right form of treatment so you can overcome hurdles and take advantage of opportunities.
As a first step, hospitals should create structures that support a cost-efficient outpatient treatment environment, and use this environment in a targeted manner.
The second step is to optimize patient admissions. This is the critical point at which patients should be intelligently directed to inpatient – or increasingly, outpatient – treatment. A variety of changing factors determine whether a medical procedure should be carried out on an outpatient or inpatient basis. Is the patient’s condition relevant to one of the 3,089 current OPS codes? Has the case been checked for the defined context factors? Moreover, inexperienced doctors often make admission decisions without in-depth knowledge of the right approach, or of the economic implications for the hospital.
Every time a patient is wrongly treated as an inpatient, it reduces the hospital’s operating result by approximately EUR 1,300.**
