Auditing a physician practice can be intimidating as some providers are receptive and others are not. The success lies in your ability to build a high level of trust and credibility within the practice and amongst the physicians you are auditing.
While providing education and training to physicians whether it is one on one or in a group you must remain focused, confident and display a positive attitude. Most providers want to learn how to accurately choose the level of service based on their supporting documentation.
The method in which you display your audit results is equally important and should be visually easy for the physician to review and interpret. Provide as many educational tools as possible and make it clear that the audit is being done for educational purposes only and not meant to be punitive.
The longer you audit and the more feedback you recieve the more comfortable you will feel.
Hope this helps,
