Coding and Billing for the Complex Women's Health Care Outpatient Visit

CEUs = 1
Rx =
Fee = $0.00
Student Fee = $0.00
Track Identifiers: Midwifery Matters - Business
Session Description:
Basic billing and coding concepts are understood by most midwives, however, the care of patients is often complicated by co-morbidities and multiple services delivered during the same visit. Additionally, routine maternity care is typically billed as a global package, yet many times there are opportunities to bill services provided that are not included in global care. Failure to document and appropriately bill for complex encounters results in missed revenue. This session will discuss appropriate ways to document and bill for complex women's health care outpatient visits.
Objectives:
1. The participants will be able to define the various code sets that represent services provided by midwives.
2. The participant will be able to discuss the key components that determine the correct evaluation and management code that represents an ambulatory service.
3. The participants will be able to define the various code sets that represent services provided by midwives.
4. The participant will be able to appropriately document and code complex encounters including: a. Annual visits with problems b. Office visits with procedures c. E&M services provided during pregnancy

Session Description:
Although women account for one-fifth of new HIV infections, they made up only 7% of new pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) users in 2016. Women with bacterial sexually transmitted infection (STI) diagnoses are PrEP-eligible but most women’s health providers, including midwives, lack the knowledge and skills to initiate the PrEP care continuum. This leaves many high-risk women without this life-saving intervention and exacerbates disparities in reproductive health outcomes. This presentation will reinforce midwives’ knowledge of PrEP, and increase their ability to screen for PrEP eligibility, collaborate with women in deciding if PrEP is right for them, and initiating and managing obstetric and gynecologic clients n PrEP.

Track Identifiers: Midwifery Matters - Business
Session Description:
According to the most recent study of medical malpractice lawsuits involving midwives, the risk of liability for midwives caring for women and newborns is significant. This risk has increased over the last 20 years in both numbers of lawsuits and categories of liability risk. A panel discussion designed to address several aspects of the liability process will be presented in dialogue with the audience. The results of the 2018 Midwives and Liability Survey will be presented. Discussion will include key points of effective debriefing, how to cultivate emotional support and how to destigmatize lawsuits. Professionals with experience in each of these topics will share their stories and answer questions designed to prepare, prevent and or mitigate liability for professional practice.
Objectives:
1. 1. Understand characteristics and influences of liability for midwives in the United States to share with providers and policy makers.
2. 2. Understand the basic principles of the debrief process and be able to articulate the essential components for successful debriefing.
3. 3. Devise proactive plan for support during the litigation process and coping strategies for continued practice.
4. 4. Articulate strategies for risk reduction in professional practice and in the litigation process.
5. 5. Accrue 1 hour of Risk Management education required of (some) malpractice providers.

Session Description:
While 88% of trafficking victims in the US seek out medical care at some point during their active exploitation, a vast majority of medical professionals have received little to no training on identification, and most medical networks do not have response protocols in place to adequately intervene in a trafficking situation. This session will include an overview of federal and state statutes, risk factors, and red flag indicators; a literary review of existing scholarly findings and recommendations, real-life scenarios, and well-defined intervention and support actions applicable for professionals in medical settings.
Objectives:
1. Understand the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and subsequent re-authorizations, and the definition and identification of trafficking within the context of a medical setting.
2. Learn key indicators of trafficking including tattoos, language, and behaviors.
3. Review real-life scenarios as shared by survivors of sex trafficking to better understand effective intervention and response measures in the medical setting.

The "Hot" Dilemma: Fever of Unknown Origin in the Pregnant Patient

Rx =
Fee = $0.00
Student Fee = $0.00
Track Identifiers: Clinical
Session Description:
Fever of unknown origin (FUO) is often a medical conundrum that requires careful history and physical examination. The etiologies for the disease process are infectious, malignancies, and systemic rheumatic disease. However, even with a meticulous examination and laboratory testing, greater than 50% of cases have no clear cause. In pregnancy, FUO can be both worrisome and dangerous to the mother as well as the fetus. We will review a case presentation of a patient who presented with FUO in the third trimester and her evaluation and management through the remainder of her pregnancy.
Objectives:

Session Description:
Perinatal opioid use disorder (OUD) has increased dramatically in the United States. In this presentation, we will discuss trends in illicit substance use and OUD, how it is relevant to midwifery, and make the case for why midwives should be taking care of women with OUD. We will present examples of the lived experiences of pregnant and parenting women with OUD using digital stories. Finally, we will review opportunities for training and how to find resources to provide the best evidence-based care for this population of women.
Objectives:
1. Describe 3 reasons why the midwifery model of care is effective for women with opioid use disorder.
2. Name the major treatment modalities for opioid use disorder for pregnant women, and how they intersect with midwifery scope of practice.
3. Describe ethical issues of care for pregnant and parenting women with opioid use disorder.

Session Description:
Hypothesis Movement toward evidence-based, safe practice in maternity care is imperative for the health and well-being of birthing individuals and newborns. Patient engagement may contribute to achievement of high-quality maternity care at lower cost with improved patient satisfaction. Populations experiencing health disparities, those with low health literacy or those challenged by language barriers may experience significant benefits from the employment of decision aids. Aim Shared decision-making (SDM) is a process of mutual discernment, blending strategies and options based on knowledge and experience of the clinician with the goals, preferences and experience of the patient. Although SDM in the clinical setting is considered a pillar of quality care by professional organizations, without the intentional use of a framework, providers may unknowingly deviate from the principles of SDM and provide less than optimal counseling. The aim of this research is to determine if a 60-minute educational presentation and interactive case review will increase efficacy in the practice of SDM for midwives and midwifery students at 5 sites in 3 states. Framework Birthside Manner is a program designed to increase confidence in facilitating effective communication through insight and behavior change. It is based on the Four Habits framework, originally developed for outpatient visits. This framework encourages providers to have conversations with patients using four steps. The first step involves establishing a rapport and engaging the individual in the care plan. The second step is eliciting her perspective. The third step employs using eye contact, touch, body language and spoken language to demonstrate understanding and empathy. The fourth step is providing closure. Methods This program employs strategies based in Social Cognitive Theory to provide a frame in helping individuals set goals to make behavior change, despite external barriers, errors and internal struggles against change. Participants will consider their perceived ability to change, reflect on their confidence and anticipate future success. Data collection and analysis will be through pre/post testing with the PEPPI-5 instrument. Findings: NA Future Implications This pilot study is the first step in development of a longer curriculum and learning tools such as webinars and mobile applications promoting SDM in maternity care.

Session Description:
Background: Obstetrical triage units function like emergency departments with unpredictable volumes that affect the timely evaluation and treatment of patients and lead to longer wait times, delays in care, and longer length of stay (LOS). These are associated with patient dissatisfaction, staff dissatisfaction, adverse clinical outcomes, and increased cost. Local Problem: Henry Ford Hospital’s obstetrical triage unit did not meet national recommendations for timely prevision of care. These delays led to a negative correlation (p = .039) between patient satisfaction and LOS and contributed to team dissatisfaction (mean 68%). The aim of this quality improvement project was to decrease the LOS of obstetrical triage patients by 20% over an eight-week period through the utilization of nurse-driven orders, improved communication, and patient engagement. Methods: Rapid cycle quality improvement using four plan-do-study-act cycles was utilized. Each cycle included tests of change related to team engagement, patient engagement, and two processes. Data were analyzed using run charts to evaluate the impact of interventions on outcomes. Interventions: Primary interventions were team huddles, a patient decision tool, nurse-driven orders, and a hypertension care algorithm. Results: Staff satisfaction increased 12% (mean). Most patients (mean 87%) were satisfied with the patient decision tool. Utilization of nurse-driven orders facilitated a decrease in mean LOS for hypertensive patients (n=59) of 9%. Overall LOS for all patients (n=654) was decreased by 23% (mean). Hypertension algorithm compliance was 100%. Conclusions: Throughput in triage is affected by many factors including availability of test results, practice styles of providers, and availability of beds.

Exploration of the Vaginal and Gut Microbiome in African American Women by Body Mass Index and Gestational Weight Gain Presenter: Mary Ann Faucher Co-presenters: Marie Hastings-Tolsma, Leigh Greathouse, R. Noah Padgett, Nadim Ajami Purpose/Aim: Characterize the distal gut and vaginal microbiome in healthy African American (AA) women by pre-pregnancy body mass index (pBMI) including obesity class, and gestational weight gain (GWG). Urinary Metabolomic Profile and Class of Obesity and Gestational Weight Gain in African American Women Presenter: Marie Hastings-Tolsma Co-presenters: Mary Ann Faucher, Leigh Greathouse, Teodoro Bottiglieri Significance/Background: Metabolic profiling provides insight into cellular processes by monitoring endogenous small molecular weight metabolites in biological samples. Targeted metabolomic approaches allow identification of endogenous physiological metabolites that are specific to pathologic conditions. Measuring the relative concentration of endogenous metabolites provides a “snapshot” of pathway activity and metabolic state.

Session Description:
U.S. women face healthcare disparities, limited access to providers, and the closing of maternity care facilities. Midwives working within an inter-professional, collaborative model can provide a solution for improving quality and access, yet newly graduated midwives face significant challenges as they enter their first years of practice. Midwifery fellowships offer extensive learning opportunities for newly graduated midwives to hone both their clinical and collaboration skills, while developing their leadership and research skills. Inter-professional collaborative care models foster collegial relationships and mutual respect among midwives, physicians, residents, and students. The fellowship at The George Washington University is well integrated within a dynamic academic setting and offers a unique program for mentoring new midwives, developing scholarship and leadership, and promoting excellence in clinical practice. This session will examine the history, processes and curricula of the Midwifery Fellowship at GWU, and the benefits of a fellowship program for all involved. Participants will gain a pragmatic understanding of the goals, benefits and challenges, and how to create and implement a fellowship program in any organization or practice.

Session Description:
Representation of midwives of color in ACNM has remained low since its inception despite efforts to increase the recruitment, retention, graduation, and success rates on the AMCB midwifery certification exam.1. Midwives of color currently constitute 5% of ACNM midwives. Historically, students of color have faced serious challenges resulting from racism or implicit bias. 2,3. These challenges have led them to suffer physical and emotional trauma which jeopardizes their academic success often resulting in them making a choice between failure or withdrawal from their respective midwifery education programs. 3,4. Systemic racism in society, health professions education, and healthcare are the root causes of health inequities and Maternal-Child health disparities.5. The American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) is committed to eliminating racism and racial bias in the midwifery profession and race-based disparities in reproductive health care. However, several barriers continue to exist regarding the recruitment, retention, and success of midwifery students and faculty from underrepresented communities. These include the lack of inclusive teaching, fair institutional policies, and educators’ skill in creating racially and culturally safe education content that includes racial, social and reproductive justice and environments for learning, creativity, and innovation in the classroom and the clinic environment.1,2,3. Trauma resulting from racism or implicit bias experienced in midwifery education programs can potentially erode an individual's sense of self-confidence and empowerment to enter leadership positions in their careers.2,6. The purpose of this panel is to highlight the problems of implicit bias and racism in midwifery education and seek solutions which can be applied across all midwifery education programs. Recent midwifery graduates are invited to share their lived experiences in midwifery education programs.
Objectives:
1. At the end of the session, participants should be able to identify practices within midwifery education programs which are based on implicit bias, microaggressions or racial stereotyping that negatively limit the success of students of color.
2. At the end of the session, Participants should be able to discuss at least two effective strategies that faculty and education programs could adopt that are equitable and thus support the retention and success of students of color.
3. At the end of the session, participants should be able to suggest at least one action that both ACME and AMCB could undertake to eliminate implicit bias in midwifery education.
