Relative Value Units in the Medical Practice Speakers: Max Reiboldt and Justin Chamblee

The Relative Value Unit (RVU) system can be a powerful tool to help you manage your practice. When analyzing the many services you provide, the RVU system can help you compare one service to another in an objective, meaningful manner. In today's healthcare arena, the focus on RVUs continues to expand.
Even though RVUs were created as a payment method for Medicare, they have become a valuable tool for tracking provider productivity, measuring and defining costs, negotiation managed care contracts, compensating physicians, and benchmarking key indicators. In this session you will discover practical applications of RVUs and vital information about work RVUs. You will be able to track provider productivity using RVUs, analyze costs using RVUs, and define how RVUs are used in managed care contracts.
