Surviving before Thriving: Respiratory Care at a Reimbursement Crossroads


Which road is your respiratory department on: the path to extinction or the path to surviving and thriving? Michael J. Hewitt, RRT-NPS, RCP, FAARC, FCCM, winner of ADVANCE‘s National Respiratory Achievement Award for Best Manager, will help you gain access to the highway for success during a webinar: Surviving Before Thriving: Respiratory Care at the Fork in the Road.

Why participate in this presentation? Hewitt explains:

  • The medical environment is changing in a hurry
  • Reimbursement structures are rapidly changing, and not to the advantage of RC departments
  • The number of low-resource and non-resource patients is increasing
  • Every discipline, every department is under the microscope
  • It’s all about what value you bring to the table, now more than ever
  • Respiratory therapy is an easy target, and it’s our own fault
  • We can increase our value
  • We cannot thrive unless we first survive.
