UHMS makes medicare reimbursement paper available to the public

The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Registry (HBOTR) has released an important paper detailing its work in Medicare reimbursement issues, and it is now available to the public.

Go to:

“Rapid analysis of hyperbaric oxygen therapy registry data for reimbursement purposes,” a technical paper by Caroline E. Fife, Helen Gelly, David Walker and Kristen Allison Eckert is available as an epub-ahead-of-print download from the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society.

Jointly sponsored by the UHMS and the US Wound Registry (USWR), the HBOTR recently provided national data quickly to the RUC on thousands of patients who underwent HBO2 in order to help establish a fair analysis of the physician work of hyperbaric chamber supervision.

The process is detailed in the paper and will be published in the September-October 2016 issue of Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine, the journal of the UHMS.
