Every medical practice should perform chart auditing a minimum of at least once a year. Effective medical record chart auditing requires an understanding of the basic principles. This workshop session will cover the key elements of medical chart auditing—from validating examination, decision-making, surgical documentation and other services for every patient chart to reporting and initiating corrective action plans. Don’t find your practice in the middle of a payer audit feeling unprepared and vulnerable. Develop the skills necessary to completely and accurately review and validate medical services from a compliance perspective.
Please note: This is a very interactive workshop involving hands-on audit exercises and will require you bring your core coding books (CPT®, ICD-9-CM, HCPCS Level II).
This Workshop Will Help You:
- Outline the process for correctly assessing medical necessity
- Evaluate the key elements of other types of audits, including surgical and ancillary services
- Design an auditing report and/or corrective action plan based on results
- Apply chart auditing hands-on skills working with multiple case studies
