  2. The AOA • Professional Association Representing 64,000 Osteopathic Physicians & >15,600 Medical Students • Primary Certifying Body for DOs • Accrediting Agency for Osteopathic GME, Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Hospitals & Other Health Care Facilities

  3. Osteopathic Medicine • Founded in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO • Focused on the Whole Person - Unity of Mind, Body, Spirit - Structure Influences Function - Innate Ability of the Body to Health Itself

  4. Osteopathic GME • Primary Care Focus + 23 Medical Specialties • Community-Based Clinical Education • 1 in 5 Medical Students attends 1 of 25 Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine in 28 Locations • Osteopathic Medicine is One of the Fastest Growing Health Professions

  5. OGME Development Initiative A Ready Source of Information and Expert Assistance for Starting an Osteopathic Graduate Medical Education Program in Your Hospital

  6. Trends Affecting Hospitals • Physician Workforce Shortages • New Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine & Medical Schools • Increasing Number of Medical Graduates • Increased Interest in Starting GME Programs = New Hospital Opportunities

  7. What Keeps CEOs Up at Night • Competition for Well-Reimbursed Patient Services • Increased Cost of Physician Services • Emphasis on Cost Containment • Quality Oversight/Ties to Payment • Shortage of Skilled Healthcare Workers • Shortage of Physicians – Especially Primary Care Physicians

  8. Benefits of GME • Hospital Benefits • Medical Staff Benefits • Recruiting Benefits • Patient Care Benefits • Bottom Line Benefits

  9. Hospital Benefits • Physician Recruitment • Culture of Education • In-House Physician Coverage • Educational & Technical Expertise • Enhanced Service to the Community • Competitive Advantage • Revenue Stream

  10. Medical Staff Benefits • Environment of Life-Long Learning • Expanded Referral Network • Prestige in the Community • Tighter Bonds Among Medical Staff & Among Attendings, House Staff & Nursing • Enhanced CME Opportunities • Succession Planning • Mentoring and Molding Future Physicians

  11. Recruiting Benefits • Ability to “Grow Your Own” Medical Staff • Reduced Physician Recruiting Expenses • Caliber of Training is a Known Quantity • Trainees are Already Known & At Home in the Community • Interns & Residents Tend to Remain in the Area Where They Train

  12. Patient Care Benefits • Access to Care • Enhanced Coverage & Quality • Enhanced Ability to Meet Community Needs • Expanded Scope of Services • Presence of Residents 24/7 • More Patient Contact with Physicians • Increased Comfort Level for Nursing • Opportunity for Clinical Trials & Research

  13. Bottom Line Benefits • Medicare Direct & Indirect GME Payments • Reduced Medical Staff Coverage Expenses • Increase in Physician Referral Base • Financial Support also may be available from Medicaid, the Veterans Administration and Other Federal or State Programs

  14. A Word about Costs Start-Up Costs Include: • Resident Salaries & Benefits • Faculty Salaries - DME & Program Director(s) - Inpatient & Ambulatory Teaching Faculty - Support Staff • Certain Capital & Equipment Costs (call rooms, library, computers, intern/resident lounge)

  15. A Word about Payment Medicare Pays Teaching Hospitals - • Direct Graduate Medical Education (DGME) Payments • Indirect Medical Education (IME) Adjustment Based on Formulas, Statutory Factors & Certain Hospital-Specific Data

  16. DGME Payment • Payment for Medicare’s Share of the Costs of Training Interns & Residents - Resident Salaries & Benefits - Faculty Compensation - Program Administration & Overhead Costs • Calculated using Hospital-Specific Per Resident Amount, Medicare Utilization Rate & Number of Full Time Equivalent Residents

  17. IME Adjustment • Recognizes Teaching Hospitals Have Higher Patient Care Costs due to Presence of Trainees - Treating Sicker Patients - Offering More Services, Tests & Technology • Calculated using Hospital-Specific Teaching Intensity (ratio of residents to beds), DRG Payments and Statutory IME Adjustment Factor for the Current Year

  18. “New” Teaching Hospital • Hospital with a GME Program Established On or After January 1, 1995 • Resident “Cap” is Set Based on the Number of Residents in All Specialty Programs in the Third Year After Training Begins • Once Caps are Set, Urban Hospitals Generally Cannot Add Medicare-Funded Positions • Rural Hospitals Can Add New Specialties but Cannot Expand Existing Programs

  19. FTE Cap • Hospital Can Train As Many Residents as it is Approved For • Cap Establishes a Limit on the Number of Residents Medicare will Pay For • Cap Necessitates Advance Planning & a Strategic Approach to Developing a GME Program
