Wiki New providre orientation

Teaching Physician Orientation

New provider orientation includes (but is not limited to):
Types of service s/he will provide (E/M, surgery, etc)
How to determine level of E/M services
Documentation guidelines for E/M
Documentation guidelines for operative/procedure notes
Teaching physician attestation requirements
Schedule for auditing
"housekeeping" (their assigned provider #, assigned dictation #, signing the signature card, etc)
Names and phone extensions of the coders who will be handling their documentation

It's been a while since we had a new provider, and that's off the top of my head.

Hope that helps.
