Your providers would be silly to let you go if they got an EMR system. I worked for an urgent care that had EMR and docs can still forget to post items that are billable. The system only knows what it is told, but before I sent a claim I would scan each chart and could tell if documentation was missing. Here is an example:
The doc stated sutures were done, but the note would be incomplete items missing would be were the sutures simple interupted, the number of sutures, what anesthetic did they use, how long or deep was the wound etc. These are all items needed for proper documentation. Just saying I sutured the wound is not sufficient. A good coder can work wonders with an EMR system it makes your job easier and the providers become better at documenting.
I could easily audit 50-75 charts in an hour before claims ever went out ensuring the documantation and the level the system chose were correct.
