Case Conversations: Aligning Clinical Needs with Reimbursement Realities

This episode is co-presented by the Association of Physician Leadership in Care Management and the American Case Management Association. In this episode, we are joined by three physicians, Dr. Rebecca Severe, a Hospital Medicine-certified physician serving as Medical Director of Care Management for Advocate Aurora Health, Dr. Sweta Singh, Medical Director of Care Management at the University of Michigan Medical School, and Dr. Teresa Jacobs, Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Michigan Medical School

In this conversation, the physicians focus on two patient cases. The first case covers a 42-year-old female who had a total knee replacement and developed a wound dehiscence and infection. The question arises whether the patient should be admitted as an inpatient or placed under observation. The second case is a riveting dialogue regarding a 75-year-old female with relapsed IgG lambda multiple myeloma who requires 48 hours of monitoring after each dose of a new immunotherapy medication. The dilemma is whether this patient should be admitted as an inpatient or placed under observation. The conversation highlights the importance of prior authorization, the complexity of billing for high-cost medications, and the need for communication and collaboration among different departments.
