FROM: Theodore O. Will, Chief Executive Officer
DATE: Jun 22, 2004
SUBJECT: CHANGE IN IPRO ONSITE WORK HOURS
Kathleen M. Fox RN, MSA, Senior Director, Medicaid/State Healthcare Assessment, Ext. 361
Beginning on July 12, 2004, IPRO will be modifying the onsite time that nurse reviewers spend at a facility. The current work hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The new work hours will be between 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
As you are aware, IPRO performs Medicaid chart review on-site at hospitals at least twice a month. This change is being implemented to meet the flexible work requirements of our contracts and in an effort to decrease the number of charts that have to be requested for off-site review, copied, and sent to IPRO.
IPRO is requesting your cooperation in implementing this change in the work schedule and appreciate your assistance. If you are unable to accommodate this revised scheduling, please contact us as soon as possible.
If you have any questions please feel free to call Kathleen Fox, Senior Director, Medicaid/State Healthcare Assessment at 516-326-7767, extension 361.
