Did You Know…

Did you know that our very own Executive Vice President and Founder, Dr. Mark Lewandowski, recently released a thought-provoking book called Thinking Reimagined?
This book is a guide to assist you in your personal pursuit to lead hospice into an amazing and rewarding future.

“The human capacity to continue to grow and develop mentally has no bounds outside of self-imposed limitations. Critical thinkers can become highly creative thinkers given the right tools and environmental modifications. People who doubt the value of their ideas can become real innovators within organizations and communities by simply learning how to employ their ideas into a system. Impactful ideas for growth, change and success are already in the corners of your mind waiting to be discovered.”  - Mark Lewandowski

1. Is the diabetes related to the primary diagnosis?

a.     It can most likely be considered related in patients with CHF, end-stage renal, coronary artery disease, or cerebrovascular disease.

        i.     In this case, if there is clear evidence that tight glycemic control is necessary to the primary diagnosis, the hospice should cover the insulin.

b.     It may or may not be the case if the primary diagnosis is peripheral artery disease when the peripheral artery disease is directly impacting the prognosis. This also would apply to patients with peripheral artery disease which results in a gangrenous limb.
