How to Communicate E/M Auditing to your Physician in 1 Hour Webinar

Learn more about this event

E/M coding is a skill rarely taught in medical school, which leads to confusion and frustration for physicians. In this webinar, we will discuss how to use clinical scenarios rather than “code-speak” to engage physicians and nonphysician practitioners in helpful discussions about the complexity of the services they render. You will learn how to use EHR tools and concepts to improve documentation and efficiency, thus providing more time for patient care. Finally, we will discuss communication principles that will allow you to break through the barriers between coders and physicians.

Why is this topic important?
E/M coding is complex and often counterintuitive for physicians focused on patient care.

Who would benefit from this topic?
Anyone working with physicians and nonphysician practitioners, including but not limited to coders, billers, practice managers.

How would this benefit the individual and/or their company?

Why are you the expert on this topic?
Deann Tate, CPC, CPMA, CCC, CEMC, has 18 years of coding experience, with 13 years as a physician coding educator and auditor.
