Make Sure Your Service is Compliant with New Cardiac Catheterization Service Rules (Part 1: Level I and Level II)

 | 12:00 pm to 01:00 pm


Bricker & Eckler invites you to participate in a two-part series of webinars to be held on Tuesday, May 24 and Wednesday, May 25 from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST.

Ohio’s new cardiac catheterization rules were effective April 30, 2016. Make sure your service is compliant with those new rules. Our webinars will cover the new rules, legal considerations, waivers and variances, necessary action to be compliant and best practices. The new rules establish three service level classifications:

  • Level I services perform only diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedures
  • Level II services perform diagnostic and authorized therapeutic cardiac catheterization procedures without an on-site open heart surgery service
  • Level III services perform all diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization procedures with an on-site open heart surgery service

This webinar will cover Level I and Level II service rules. You may join us for one or both sessions.

Part 2 on Wednesday, May 25 will cover Level II (repeat) and Level III service rules. Register for Part 2 >>
