A unique book for a unique position
The responsibility of the chargemaster coordinator has become increasingly specialized in recent years, and little information exists describing the chargemaster s relationship to the hospital s overall operation, as well as the compliance requirements and training needs of the department responsible for maintaining the chargemaster.
Chargemaster coordinators must have a comprehensive body of knowledge including coding, billing, the cost report, and charge capture. The Chargemaster Coordinator s Handbook, written by Duane C. Abbey, PhD, CFP,is a thorough exploration of the knowledge, abilities, and skills that professionals need to develop, maintain, and optimize the hospital s chargemaster to ensure correct reimbursement.
The Chargemaster Coordinator s Handbook provides a clear explanation of how the chargemaster affects other departments and illustrates how it fits into the overall pricing and charge algorithm process. This book will help your hospital establish and operate an efficient chargemaster, maintaining compliance along the way.

Design, maintain, and update your chargemaster
