Thread: Cyberknife documentation

  1. #1

    Default Cyberknife documentation

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need information on what is sufficient documentation for Cyberknife. In the procedure, there is a plan, and all of the typical oncology billing for dosimetry, blocks, management and the like. I am specifically wondering if the consult report with the recommendations of the # of fractions in conjunction with a log showing the volume and time of each treatment is sufficient documentation. Is there a requirement for a report on each time the treatment and how the procedure was performed required for sufficient documentation in an audit situation.

    Is there a resource somewhere that will give me this type of information even down to a code by code basis...even outside of Oncology?

    Default cyberknife documentation

    I was wondering the same thing, I have two physicians that do the cyberknife planning part, but we have been using an unlisted code for the body area that it is focused on. i went to a brief overview of how to document the cyberknife planning if you send me your email address i will scan you what i was given at the meeting. maybe this will help you out some. if you find out more information please let me know, i am interested in finding out myself

    thank you
