RVUs are frequently used in medical practices to measure productivity for compensation, but how will they be used in the future. Continued dramatic changes and legislative requirements lay ahead in the healthcare delivery system that could have a substantial effect on a practice's expenses, such as the disruptive change to ICD-10 and the costs associated with its implementation. The impact these unrelenting governmental changes will have as it relates to RVUs and the overall productivity and reimbursement measurements within the medical practice and related healthcare entities will be considerable for years into the future.

This session will take a look at the future of RVUs and what to expect down the road with the anticipated 2013 implementation of ICD-10. Participants in this session will learn to:
  • Examine other possibilities for expanding the utilization of RVUs
  • Explore future reimbursement structures
  • Recognize the critical components and challenges of ICD-10 implementation and compliance time frame
  • Understand the affect ICD-10 codes will have on RVUs
